I would like to as my daughter has started year 10 and would prefer not to move her school during her GCSE years. Also only 1hr drive to family.
Last week I spoke to the Local Housing Office, and they said I was not entitled to social housing because I'd just moved into the area, have no family in the area and am unemployed. I was advised by the Local Housing Office to apply to the council in the area where my parents live.
Is this just to reduce the number of applicants in the local area or have I a genuine claim for social housing?
