I am a carer husband,who is a registered disabled

Resolved Question:

hello.
I am a carer for my husband,who is a registered disabled person and we have desided to end our marriage. The house we are living in, is from the council because of special adaptations. My husband wishes to leave, so I am left with 2 children and a 3 bedroom house. I can not afford to live in this house, and i do not have a job because i was-still am my husband carer. do i have to wait until the council take me to court before i get help looking for a new place.
both of our names are ***** ***** tenancy. and he wishes to remove his name but i haven't signed any paperwork for that.
also, I found out that my husband was making plans to move abroad in January, by himself. so he has been planning to leave for some time. and I can prove this as his sister told me that she will not support his application from for migration to Australia.

if i remove my name from the joint tenancy agreement, i will be making myself homeless, and the council will not help you if you do this. so do i have to wait until i get evicted......... before i get help ..... if i decide to leave with the children, can i rent out a propery privatly and will i still recieve house benifts to pay for this... i dont know.

Please please stop worrying Yes you will have to move because of the adaptions but the Council will rehouse you in an alternative propertyYou should contact the housing office as soon as he moves out so that you can start bidding on other propertiesYou will be eligible for housing benefit to help with the rentPlease ask if you need further details
