get yourself a bigger flat, common sense is needed here more than advice

It is against the law in the US. I would think it would be there too. There are reasons for occupancy laws. You need at least a 2 Bed and with kids that age, that is pushing it too.

Don't know about UK laws...but in the US, such a living arrangement is highly illegal. BTW...be a good dad and give the boys a bedroom...you and your wife should be sleeping in the living room.

I don't think that can be right at all. You should at least have one more bedroom - then the boys can share one & you have the other. The kids should have their own space too. There are laws against overcrowding, so you should inform the council.

No your defiantley overcrowded! You don't say what your circumstances are, but if you are living in council accommodation you would then have grounds to be rehoused.

United States -- too many people for a one bedroom. You would need a two bedroom place in the United States

Goodness...how much room do you need. Some people have many more than that in cramped conditions even taking it in shifts to sleep. Be grateful for whatever you have.

yes....you have a roof over your head however uncomfortable or cramped it might be. why don't you go & rent a bigger place...just out of curiousity?

yeah, if it was a daughter and son living in the same room then it wouldnt be. but i think that is fine. not ideal but if it's all you can get...

It doesn't sound ideal but I'm not sure the law comes into it - you chose to have 2 children and presumably you also chose to live in a 1-bed flat. Why don't you move to a bigger place - are you and your wife both unemployed or something? Surely the boys could help out by getting part-time or weekend jobs?
