Can I have a private post please?
Well for the past 8 weeks almost me and my partner have not been living together. We are working things out one minute and the next at each other’s necks. I’m living in a house which we’ve rented off his Mam for the past 4 years. We have a 10 month old daughter and 2 months ago me and his mother had a big row. The kitchen Ceiling fell down because of a leak we had under the bath that was never fixed properly. The boiler brakes every other month and there’s damp in 3 rooms in the house. She won’t do any repairs anymore and went eggs ceiling fell down that was the last straw and I had a blazing argument with his Mam. My partner has decided to live with his Mam leaving me and the baby in the house. I work 16 hours and don’t claim anything apart from child benefit. Would I be able to claim anything? As I only earn £500 and he has paid he rent for the past two months but said it’s just a one off. We still don’t no weather we are sorting things out and I’m very hurt and we need a lot of time apart. Would I be able to claim anything? What if we did get back together in a few months time would I have to pay everything back as I don’t want to get in trouble for anything but my wages don’t cover much
