I have been touring and making more appointments to see new homes for us. There are important things to consider because of Q's needs. I dont need beautiful, I need it to work. I just got notice of my rent increase so total I will need to pay 1545 per month on a 2700/month income (well after I start having my pay come back to normal, aarrrggg. in aug.) So here is my dilema. I have to give two months notice if I move. All of these rental agencies will only hold a place for thirty days from the deposit so I can't apply for anything I see until a month after I give notice! My problem is, do I just give notice and pray there will be an option for us in a month when I can finally apply? My lease is up last day of july. I can't apply till last day of june then. What would you guys do? And in the mean time I have to see who can help me financially to even accomplish this move. I have a couple of kind people to help with some things...that is a blessing, but it all has to be covered or I can't do it. Q's worker is looking for support but not sure. She said she might be able to help with a deposit. That would be amazing. My sister will let me use her credit card for app. fees, etc. Thank heaven. There are some real possibilities, I wish I could pay two places at once for rent but that is NOT going to happen. Both places I have worked with the most have said that they feel other places will become available in July but wow does that cut it close. I asked MN disability law and she said that MN law says if you are between houses/homeless I guess, then your current district still has to service you so if I couldn't find a place I could do storage and stay with my sister for a month until we move I suppose....it would be a month of hell for them but at least I would not have him out on the street. That is so a last choice due to the hardship on them and Q transitioning so much. Would you take the risk? Just make the decision and do it? Or do I suck up the increase and hope to get a job in fall? (assuming Q does well in his school still) It is so stressful living here with him with all the kids around and not being able to go outside. These other places have private attached garages (we have a separate one and underground community parking). If it i s attached I can close the door and we go in our apt without distractions. I just dont know, I'd really love to be able to move for Q, our situation, and to help us financially.
