Mr. Martinez

Some advice please - HOUSING

80 posts in this topic

Anyone here been a similar situation, know someone that has, works in housing or for some random reason knows what to do...?

My boy's been living at his friends house for 5 months since his mum kicked him out. He's been able to support himself by working part-time random jobs.

He was given the double whammy of loosing his job and his friend not being able to put him up anymore the other day.

WTF does man do?

He's just turned 24 His mum lived in east london and his friend lives in West.

Where does he go?

no tro1ls please. real life only. safe.

He will have to find a friends couch or pay for a hostel which can be pretty cheap.

The council will do absolutely nothing for a 24 year old male unless he has special circumstances.

Tbf a 24 year old male shouldnt be living with his mum anyway, but thats a whole other discussion.

Under 24s can receive housing benefit towards a room in a shared house.

it will take at least 6 weeks to come through, i know someone who done it recently i think they get 60 per week for a room in a shared house, u have to be signing on to job seekers allowance aswell.

peak don't lie?

is it backdated?

also who knows if

when they say you can only get money towards a room in shared flat, do they mean they're only going to give you 60 a week and they know thats not enough for a 1 bedroom flat on your own. Or do they try make sure it is a shared flat?

The chance of a 24 year old male with no medical conditions or other issues getting a council flat in london is very slim, he could move up north he'd probably get a place within a couple months.
