Hello, everyone, I am new to this site and hope that someone can point me in the right direction! my grandson and his partner both suffer disabilities tried to get on the council list but was told there was a long list that was fine so they got in touch with a letting agent who showed them one but it was outside where they needed to be close to family but they took it on a years contract at £700 a mouth in the meantime they where looking for somewhere near to family and they had to see a few as it came up to the year ending the agent was pushing them to sign for another year knowing they were looking for a house closer to family his mum told the agency that she did not think that was right of them, so they came back and told them that the landlord would let them have a six-month contract so my grandson said that would be better as they hope to be moving soon he did ask if he could have a mouths contract but they told him no as he thought he would have to give mouths notice.
so they find a nice house and the landlord tell them there is a lot of people interested in the house so he would have to take everything into consideration he knew they were both on benefits and as luck would have it he picked them, so my grandson and his partner were overjoyed they had got a nice house was near to shops witch meant they did not have to go far and best of all they were close to both family.
Now the sting they paid the new landlord the first-month rent then went to the agent of there home told them they had found a nice place to live and that they would like to pay a month notice and they did with help from the family they even tidied the garden up and had the rubbish removed that had been there for over a year? then they got a text saying that they had to pay another two months as that would take them to the end of there contract but they can not afford to do that they have loaned money plus they have had to pay out two lots of rent and with both of them on benefits they can not do it they have never defaulted in all the time they have been there; so I a granddad asking if there is anything they could or can do to help them both.
Thanking you in advance Spraggerdog.
