  1. Currently I am unemployed and receiving ESA, due to an ongoing medical problem. I am also in receipt of housing / council tax benefit, on my rented flat. I am seriously thinking of moving(only a few miles) to a similar priced acomodation, but it falls under a different council. I realise what housing benefit you receive depends on the post code you live, which I have checked, and there is minimal difference . Would I be in my rights to move,and still be in receipt of similar financial help? Thanking you in advance.
  2. Hi, I wonder if you could answer my question? I am renting a flat through an estate agent, My contract was initially for 6 months which started on the 10th Oct 2009.After the 6 month agreement I decided i wanted to go on to a rolling monthly contract, which was fine with the landlord.I believe Ionly need to serve 1 months notice, and the landlord needs to give me 2 months ...is this correct? Should I decide to give notice does it need to be served by the 10th of the month, or does this date not have any significance now? Much appreciated.
  3. I now realise that it may have been harder for my employer to terminate my employment, but at the time i din't think the outcome would be as it has. Yes i was only signed off on Tuesday,my ex employer is not aware of this.

My dilema is now that i am unsure how i go about enqiuring what benefits i maybe enti

  7. Hi all This is my first thread, and i am hoping you will be able to give me the much needed information i need. I am and have been out of work for around 12 mths, and have been claiming JSA, which i believe is now income based. Although i have owned my property outright, i have also been able to claim help towards my council tax. I have now accepted an offer on my property, which should be finalised within the next 3 weeks. After paying my debts off, i am hoping to clear £45000.00.My short term plan is to move to privatly rented property, for 12 months, and then hopefully purchase again.
