Hello, I'm new to forums as a whole.  I'm trying to find somewhere to rent and having difficulty finding a landlord that will accept myself and my child.  A lot of the places are no children and the three agents that did bother contacting me back all said no young people (I'm 21).  Does anyone have any suggestions where I can go to find somewhere for myself and my child to live.

Sorry, by the way, I have been to the council and because I have not been here for 6 months they can not help unless I present as homeless which I do not want to do.

He Poppyflower. Welcome along to One Space. All I can really suggest is shop windows, local paper, and asking friends perhaps.

Hello, thank you for you reply and your suggestions, I've a feeling that this is not going to be easy.

Sadly it isn't as easy as you hope.

I do hope you are able to find somewhere soon though.

Six years ago I (and my four children) were declared homeless.   It was not an easy time, but we were very lucky...
