Re: Tenancy expiring but haven't found a new home

Mocking aside, it's clear OP isn't the first to run into this situation.

As others have said, it's really not a great idea to give up your current home (or job) before having something else lined up. Taking action in anticipation without confirmation is a recipe for disaster. Learn from this lesson.

Some options have been mentioned, and here's the order I'd try:
  1. Stop being picky about the new flat. You're the one who backed yourself into a corner with this strategy, so your best bet is to find a flat now and get moved.
  2. Ask your landlord for an extension, but I doubt this will work. Or if it does, they might ask you to cover the expenses of advertising the flat for no reason.
  3. Place your stuff in storage and move into a hotel, serviced apartment, or AirBnB until you find something new.

NOTE - Even if you find a new flat sooner, you may end up paying overlapping rent and/or storage for a short time. Some people manage to move out, clean house, handover, and move into the new place on the same day. Most don't, thus the need for an overlap.

Good luck!
