Excuse my kindle typing.
Went well. Either stbx's antics I listed made L see how bad it was I needed more action or I was uber-bitchy about thinking he as L was being lazy.
There are steps he can take for temporary measures while waiting for the normal process. Hopefully I don't look vindictive just dealing with a rational need for Ds and I to gain some stability.
And the last affordable house on my list was a very smelly dud. Sad thinking I am going to have to up my buying range which will still put me beliw the ridiculous rents here. L said temp measures could be amended if I find a place.
