Hi, im looking for some advice please. I hope i've put this in the right place. A bit long as don't want to drip feed.
When i was 38 weeks pregnant I had to move back in with DM and her partner in a 2 up 2 down. DS is now 3m old.
I moved in on a temp basis as DP had a hidden drug problem. Bills/rent went out of my account (i have learnt my lesson) and he stoppes contributing. I couldn't afford and landlord allowes us to move out aslong as we paid rent till he found new tenants. I spent every penny i had paying the rent so i wouldnt break tenancy. New tenants now in.
I signed onto the council but they deleted my application so i cannot bid on houses. I applied for private renting but failed the credit check. I have had a meeting with shelter who refered me onwards but i have heard nothing since.
I have bad mental health and have been in and out of hospital for psychosis and was under a perinatal psychitrist. My DM has helped me all she can but I have to be out by 1st oct. I have no idea where im going to go. My anxiety is through the roof. I cant live with my mum long term but i need to live near her as she helps me in my daily living. Can anyone offer any advice?

First stop is the council to ask why they deleted your application, because without the council or a housing association you are unlikely to find a house. You need to get as many letters from doctor and midwife, MH support you cam to help your application.

Good luck OP
