hi all, please offer me some advise as im at my wits end......


ill start from the beginning i owned a house but moved away but still stayed in the house as i worked in that location and stayed there 2 days a week and rented a room out as well to a friend to help cover mortgage... next thing i find out im pregnant so i decided the wise thing todo would be todo rent the whole house out as the father who i was with at the time didnt live in the location where my house was.. please not teh rent only ever covered teh mortage.

i moved in with my mom and things fell apart between me and my ex when i was 7 months pregnant found out he was with someone else as well. I was still working at this time commuting back and forth and working a night job and staying witha friend when i worked (2days) and driving back to my moms on morning i finished. My mom at the time had just bought another property and had moved into that so the plan was i would rent her place off her untill my full maternity ran out then i woudl move back to my house get it cleaned up and sell it while i was off on maternity and rent a room to help with bills.. like most things nothing goes to plan! my son came a month early, i coudlnt get my tennants out and then i find out my house was been used as a brothel so as you can imagine i didnt want to live there with my baby... cut along story shorter i was stuck has no money and needed some place to live so i stayed on at my moms and claimed housing benefit but LIED about having a house and it been my moms even tho i paid previously as she couldnt afford to let me live there free as she had morgage to pay.

I finally get a phone late a night from my tennants telling me they had left the house they had had some trouble and the windows had been put through i travelled up ther next day and windows were boarded up and locks changed so i coudlnt get in spoke to a neighbour who said the police were involved contact them, so i did, spoke to local police station who then passed me on to the drugs inspecter who advised me the house was been used for drugs and prostitution i finally got keys and the house well you can imagine wasnt fit to live in and it scared me half to death been there.. so i had 2 options go bankrupt or sort the house out and try and sell it so i went back to work (wasnt claiming housing then) did the house in the hours i didnt work up, then teh resession hit and couldnt sell it so ended up renting again. I had been traveling back and forth to work for 18months while my son stayed with my mom so i could work and be away 3 days a week which was costing me a fortune and was gutting leaving my son i was just getting deeper in to dept and mom was too tired to have my son every week and didnt want todo it anymore.. i looked for jobs local couldnt get anything and belive me i tried everywhere even the local supermarkets so have now started my own business which i am claiming hosing benefit again till i make a living i have been doing that 3 months now and have now started making a profit and give it another 3 months and ill be owning a decent income... |But i have had a letter saying i been getting done for fraud regarding capital and im scared... Please dont judge me i worked 90 hours a week to get that house but now my sons here its impossible and self employment to me was the way forward and i know it will wor im not scared of hard work.. i have never claimed anything up to this point i have always worked and earned quite a good salary.


can anyone advise me will i go to prison/
