Also what area are you looking for if private was an option?

hi danial any area would be great as long as its a 3 bedroomed bungalow we have tried to go down this route and found most landlords wont accept dss Sad even with our curcumstances i just dont know where to start i could cry its causing me a deal of stress Sad i just want whats best for my children and to see the struggle is so upsetting esp my 5 yr he wont even try to come down the stairs he just stands there and screams due to muscle weakness his legs wont allow him to do this
we always seem to have to fight for what we want out current house is a 3 bedroom house the landlord has been great and never causes me any problems etc only thing is i dont think he would be happy if i stayed where i was as he would have to adapt the house for the boys needs this would mean wider stairs so we can have a stair lift fittied also ramps at the frunt and back of the property 4848

Let me know where you currently live and i'll find a local adviser. You should still get in touch with shelterline (just google that) as they really are housing specialists, not just for street homeless people.
Chin up, it CAN be sorted.

Here we go then, firstly contact shelterline and spill th beans completely, they can appoint a casewroker who should check why your arrears were only brought up after so long and also that you are actually liable for the full amount, they can check you are in the right group on the housing register as well because it may be that the council has wrongly used the arrears as a means to not offering you a property whereas some groups are there by law and only ASB issues can be taken into account. The council is allowed to supsend your application, tell you how long it is for and hold reviews under certain conditions as well so dont lose heart whatever they say.

http://england.shelter.org.uk/

That's the link to shelter, there's a phone number and email address there.

It looks like http://www.dialbarnsley.org.uk/services/ is another contact point for you as they may well have some sway with local housing associations, if they dont then they'll know someone who does Smile


That's likely enough to take in for now, feel free to message me off the board if it helps as well....... I am on and off the PC all day and night.
