Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. How long have you worked for the employer and is it a requirement of the job that you live in this accommodation?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

i have worked for the agency from sept 2014. it is not a requirement to live in this accommodation but the rent in cambridge is too expensive.

i moved into this house on 12 july. the previous accommodation was nice. shared with one person and we had out own bathroom. the agency said i had to move as the landlord had requested the property back.

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
Nicola
