How can my baby and girlfriend join me if I can't afford to rent privately?
I don't think my situation is that uncommon but so far I couldn't find any information online and decided to post my question here. I've been living in the UK for 10 years now and I am a naturalized citizen. My girlfriend who has never lived in the UK decided to give birth to our baby abroad (EU). Now I am looking for options to be joined by them, sooner rather than later. I work as a self employed person, earning approx. £27000 gross a year (after expenses and so on £17-£18k net). Obviously with this sort of income I cannot afford to rent privately any half decent property in London. Since my people are not here yet I guess I cannot get any help from my local council right now? Is that so? The only option I can think of would be to try to rent a flat on the open market, but in order to do this I will have to tell the prospective landlord that I will be the sole occupier. Well, I would like to think there is some legal and straightforward solution.
