I'm asking for any pointers on what to do next, as The forum members probably has several hundreds of years experience (normally in a couple of poster's) So I'm asking for any advice. Basically I will be unable to afford to stay in my rented house after November due to a combination of council tax bills and cost of rent. The council say that as I earn around Â£15,000 they can't give me any help on either the council tax or housing benefit. The housing department are saying that if I leave the property I will be making my self voluntarily homeless and they'll refuse to house me. Their Great Advice was to find somewhere cheaper. I'm already in the cheapest place I can find. I'm on the housing needs register but As I'm not a druggie waster, and I work, I'm about place 600. The CAB hasnât been able to give me any useful advice. House prices are so stupidly high I can't afford one of them even i I had any money. Â£90,000 will get you a tiny studio flat about the size of a large hotel room. I've looked into housing associations, and no joy. I don't drive so I can't move out of town due to both mine and my partners work. So advice?
