I am worried no landlord will take me into rented accommodation as I will be unemployed and on Housing benefits for a few months till my boyfriend moves in with me and the baby.
Im probably getting paid my Maternity pay in a lump sum so I will have enough money to keep me going.
But I know landlords can be fussy with unemployment and benefits.
If they are funny about these things then can my Mum be my guarantor, she and my Dad both work and they have a mortgage?
Do you think many landlords would allow this?
Update: Im from the UK
