Just a general announcement.
Some of you may already know that things have not been going well for me for quite a while.
Well now, I will be homeless on Friday 19th September unless I can come up with £1,295, which I can't. Basically, my ex-flatmate (we're joint tenants) has decided, despite the fact that he no longer lives here and has no further liability for utilities etc (except the electricity bill i'm still waiting to receive), to terminate the agreement.
Due to the flawed nature of English Tenancy Law, as he is the "Lead Tenant", I can do absolutely nothing about this, and will have to move out too!
I don't have £1,295 (First month's rent of £595, plus deposit of £695) and nobody else here does, so we're all screwed. If he hadn't decided on this truly selfish act (he has lied and cheated us in other areas too) we would only have £595 to find between us.
Furthermore, I left my previous delightful (but still, salary paying) job back in July because I was forced to even resign or "be" resigned. Since then, i've done a mere 8 days of part-time work, in a job I couldn't continue doing, and been off sick since then. I'm currently, de facto unemployed again.
The DWP (Department for Work and Pensions) are trying everything possible to avoid paying me a penny, including neglecting to mention the Disability Premium of £25-£40 a week i'm entitled to, losing forms, employing staff who after speaking to I either want to slap or cry, and generally being obstructive and unhelpful.
Because they haven't sent me any paperwork, I can't claim any Housing Benefit either.
So, between these two government issues, i'm between £700 and £800 down right now.
It wouldn't stop me being evicted, but it would get me food (that will be all gone by the end of tommorow, at the latest) and find me temporary accommodation.
Concurrently, my mobile (voice) service has been suspended, I can't even receive calls or txts now.
In just over 24 hours, I will lose my DSL, Sky TV, and Landline services too. My only link with the outside world will be Terrestial television, and that doesn't do outgoing calls!
I also have a gas and credit card bill to pay, and Council Tax in about five days.
I don't know what to do, i've tried everything I can and i'm getting nowhere. I shall shortly lose communications which means I won't be here - well, I may have another 2-3 days until they cut off my mobile (data) contract as well, but that isn't guaranteed.
I'm depressed and hungry, and i've had enough.
Sorry for the rant, but I don't know how much longer i'll be around, in any sense.
