Got the house. BUT! House may not be available to move into until 20th August. BUT! We have to be out of our current property by 15th August to avoid paying Aug/Sep rent. BUT! Nowhere to go for possible gap between moving out and moving in. BUT! Can’t stay the extra month because need to have kids moved and settled before school starts 4 Sep.
Get paid 15th August. Perfect. We will have the first month’s rent covered so applied for crisis loan for deposit. BUT! They don’t pay deposits, only first months rent. BUT! They won’t pay first months rent until we have paid deposit and provided them with a receipt. BUT! We can’t pay deposit until the 15th, the day we are supposed to move in. BUT! Even then we’ll still be £272 short!
Started the application for a McJob. Didn’t cry. Yet.
