I am moving to Birmingham mid December and I am looking for place for my 7 and 10 year old and I to live, preferably and shared place for a short time , until I can find a place on my own.
It is not easy to leave everything you work so hard for behind, because you lost all of it in one day. I am relocating to the Birmingham, because I lost everything to Hurricane Irma in the British Virgin Islands, and i'm trying to make a new start, especially for the kids.
I have savings, but not much, so i'm trying to find a place to share or an affordable place to rent until I can get myself back together.
Also will need help or any info, on registering them for schools
My 10 year old will be turning 11 in November 2018, I do know people in Birmingham, they live in the Edgbaston area, but they too are full, I was thinking on staying with a friend, but she is living in a studio apt.
Does it have to be the city? It’s cheaper out of town. Handsworthwood is nice and lots of rentals in that area. My daughter lives round there. Or Sutton Coldfield, Lichfield, Walsall. All borders and easy reach of the city
I’m yet to find anywhere in Birmingham that isn’t child friendly.
Are you going to be renting or can you get help with housing from the council? It’s not uncommon for schools to be a long distance from home, at least to begin with as many schools are oversubscribed and have a long waiting list.
