That's great Nodoom, but what was the reason for the closure in the first place? You really should be looking for some type of permanent lodging that doesn't closed down. cheers.gif

The reason for closing during the holiday was down to "funding cutbacks".
Long term accommodation is a difficult thing to find. It is very expensive and the welfare system only allows for a maximum of £200 per week for rent. Rents start at £250 a week here in the capital. gaah.gif

So that only leaves the hostel choice. But there is the next problem. Due to new rules a person can only stay in one hostel for a maximum of 6 months than has to move to a different hostel. gaah.gif

With 800 pounds a month you should be able to rent a room in a home, are you not?

This is London! A room for less than £200 per week will get 100 potential tenants applying!

I should also say that those on benefits are the last to get any chance of said room. gaah.gif

It's not unusual, at least not in these parts, to ask for a couple or three months worth of rent up front. It takes a bit of funds.

That's quite expensive, but big cities are like that. damned.gif You could get a small apartment here for a month for that price.

Here in Canada we have subsidized housing (apartments) and, yes, the waiting list is a long one, but eventually you do get a permanent place to live. Does your gov't have a similar program?

Yes they do. Council housing. Very affordable rents of about £130 per week. 15 year waiting list for a single person.

Same here 3 months rent in advance and usually 1 months deposit. Also 99% of rentals are through agents who also want 2 months rent for their cut!!

single men would find it impossible here too.. i dated this total nutjob a few years ago, who i felt sorry for, looked like a supermodel (punk.. hot!), heroin addict and had his own housing commission flat/council flat.. he was 22.. the only reason he got it is because he fell through a roof whilst trying to rob a house and ended up in a wheel chair and he played up the crazy card.. he had been a street kid from about the age of 7 so knew how to screw the system..

i would guess No Doom that you will end up over seas again.. you will get some job and save up a bit of money and just go.. is that the plan? spain?

Now your getting me into my political rant!

OK here is the situation. Back in the 80's we had Thatcher as our Prime Minister. She had this wonderful idea of giving every council property tenant the right to buy their home. This was with a subsidy that meant you paid according to how long you had been a tenant. Basically people got a very good deal. Now I am all for that and it would have been fine but for one slight oversight on the government. If you sell council housing and the population is increasing then you should build new council housing, no? Well they didn't. End result. A desperate shortage of what is termed as social housing. Hence the problems today.

Marginally lower but even more shortage of properties.

Not Spain. I am currently looking into certain job opportunities with accommodation in Canada. Thanks to Shadow for this route. So I may be knocking on Shadows door soon. 13.gif

There's lots of work to be had in Northern Alberta and Saskatchewan. I'm not sure what work there is in B.C. unless it's that pipeline. I hope it works out for you Nodoom.
