Hi everyone, need some advice. I moved to Essex 16 months ago due to health reasons, and be closer to my children for help and support. I can't get on council housing list due to not living in area for 3 years. Also due to giving up flat in Scotland i intentionally made myself homeless by council view. They can help with a deposit guarantee scheme ( when i eventually find a landlord who will accept it), my question is, can the council help with estate agent fees? My daughter's friend said she got help with agents fees, but i have to wait til new year before i can have appointment with a housing officer before i can ask them. Just wondering if anyone else has had this kind of help. Sorry post is long. Thank you x
