The last couple of days I have been thinking about the homelessness application I am yet to make.
I was told that the council will not accept an application until I am facing homelessness within 28 days. As of today, my Section 21 ends in 4 days.
I am curious to know when I can put in my application but have struggled to get a straight answer. I don’t understand how the council can know I won’t be homeless within the next 28 days. Do they possess a crystal ball? No one can give me a firm date for how long the eviction will take. Yet the council seem certain it will take longer then 28 days.
Why is so hard to get a straight answer for anything?
I can only hope that they become more supportive once my application is in. I also hope this is not a sign of how honest and helpful they will be once I am in temporary housing.
