Thanks everyone - finally got housing sorted :)

Hi

I heard back from the CAB today - unless I hear otherwise it sounds like they've managed to agree with the council amended payments of 260 pounds a month. The 510 they were asking for was a)misleading wording and b)bad maths - nobody can make sense of the logic there.

So, that's the rent sorted out to payments that I can afford - it's going to take three and a half years to pay the arreers off but at least I've still got a roof over my head and at least they will get paid off.

So thanks everyone for the advice they offered, and just listening, it helped keep me sane :)

Of course if anyone can suggest what to do about the rest of the debts....

    Glad that's sorted you must feel better knowing you have a roof over your head.

    It might be a good ides to start a new thread with details of your income and outgoings and debts including interest rates so we can try to make suggestions to help with your debts.
