HOUSNG CRISIS – THINGS IVE FOUND THAT MIGHT HELP

I know at the moment there is a huge housing crisis which is causing mass homeless and people not with secure housing and places to call there own. In York there are a number of services that help these people by offering food on the night and lots more support which is fantastic and i try my best to support them.

Im quite the internet searcher – and i have moved house 25+ times… so quite an expert on renting/where to find cheap housing etc. i have found certain sites that offer cheaper housing. private renting is absolutely ridiculous and i cannot fathom how people afford this – i am personally with Yorkshire Housing paying minimum and i am so lucky to have the one bedroom flat i have. I am warm on the night and there are plenty who are not.

When i was going to live in Darlington (whilst eventually settling on Darling Buddhist centre for a year for 250 a month) i was going to use these websites and move into a property which is currently empty- suitable for living but it is temporary – so good for people who like to move- haven’t got dependents etc Here are the websites i used – there are hundreds of housing all over England that are empty and the can go for as little as 150 pounds a month to have a roof over your head so check them out –

ad hoc – Providing vacant property protection with live in Guardians – Empty property protection or a cheap place to live across the UK

camelot europe – Property in the uk and abroad.

 

I also used several other sites which offer private housing but on a cheaper basis as you dont go through an Estate Agent. These are

Gumtree – Gumtree (be careful on this)

open rent – an amazing site with cheaper properties – sign up to their newsletter to get updates.

 

I will still update this once i find more sites but i hope this helps a tad.
