Family Of 11 Living In Three Apartments Until Council Can House Them

Family Of 11 Living In Three Apartments Until Council Can House Them

A family of 11 have asked their local council to try to find them a six bedroom house because they can't get one big enough to fit in the whole family.

The Hussain family were illegally evicted from their privately rented flat and have been living split across three apartments since then. They have also been forced to move 100 miles from their home town.

Council employees are currently trying to find a suitable home for the whole family, but the Hussein family, who receive £22,000 per year in child tax credits, are currently spread over three flats in Bristol City Centre.

The family were forced to make a homelessness application to Birmingham City Council after they were illegally evicted from their previous property - a three bedroom rented house - but they have since been having a struggle to find a property that would be big enough and suitable for the whole family to live in.

They've had a hard time of it since losing their rented house. They were initially forced to live in Travelodge Hotels and have been moved around temporary homes in Staffordshire before they were placed into their current situation.

It is estimated that their current situation is costing around £1,000 per week.

The mum of the family, Simone, today Birmingham Live: "I think it's about £150-a-night to stay here because my mum was going to come down. It's scary.

"I feel my kids are missing out on stuff, too. There's not a lot to do - there's no parks close by and we're spending a fortune on petrol and parking.

"We're sweating now as well because the new school year is around the corner and I've got to get school uniforms. Apparently, there's just nowhere for us to go."

A Birmingham City Council spokesperson said: "When the Hussain family were illegally evicted from their privately-rented flat, their homeless application was accepted.

"Emergency accommodation for the family-of-11 was found by the council on the same day.

"They are currently on the housing register at the highest priority banding however, there are very few six-bedroom properties available and they have been advised that they will need to bid both pro-actively and realistically.

"The council will continue to support the Hussain family until permanent accommodation can be found."

Here's hoping that a house that is big enough is soon found, and a situation that suits everyone involved can be reached as soon as possible.
