Thinking Positively

I went to Shelter to see if they could help me unfortunately there isn't much they can do until i am actually homeless. They did give me a ueful letter to hand into the housing team. Stating my eligibility to recieve help which includes:

Eligible for assistance under s185 as im a British citizen.
Homeless, or threatened homelessness under s175 because i've been served a s21.
In priority need under s189 because i have 3 dependent children.
Unintentionally homeless under s191 as my landlord needs to live in property himself.
Also i have a local connection as i have lived in Birmingham for at least 3 out of last 5 years.

With this information im feeling a little bit more positive. I am still trying to find a way to leave so my landlord doesnt have to go to court. As i find this very unfair to landlords. They really aren't all mega rich.

I've been checking Rightmove every day to see if any affordable homes are posted unfortunately so far none. Or they have those dreaded caps "NO DSS". Which for those on low incomes,unemployed or carers like myself it feels like a kick in the teeth. All i can do now is wait until my appointment at Newtown Housing Advice Centre.
