Loads of room on the beach. Very cheap.
Sorry I can't help you in any practical way Paul (like pointing you in the direction of suitable accommodation) but my best wishes are with you in your quest to find the accommodation you need.
Have you thought about approaching any of the local Housing Associations to see if they can help?
Have you seen a housing officer at Teignbridge Council, they can be very helpful
You could try a couple of things with regards your deposit,
1. Approach TDC asking them to put forward the deposit, they will make their decision based on your circumstances and your needs.
2. As you are in receipt of benefits you could apply for a crisis loan (which is repayable).
3. You could arrange a transfer of deposit from the holding company direct to the new holding company (this takes quite a lot of planning).
4. Some private landlords accept deposit certificates issued by charities.
Hope this helps
On the downside have you seen the local LHA allowances and the level of local private rents?
Teignbridge LHA rates
Well done Lynne,
so Paul unless you get extra rental assistance your looking at £95 a week, roughly £410 a month, I can't see a lot of rental in Dawlish at that kind of money.
Again good luck.
I think Paul and his wife most probably know all this, but in todays world you have to do all sorts of checks with agents to get a sniff of a property. This is why he his trying the direct approach as my brother did, but the only way you find these places is through word of mouth
