I signed a contract with a company for accommodation
The distance selling regulations (DSR)
Contracts to provide accommodation, transport, catering or leisure services (for example hotel accommodation; plane, train, or concert tickets; car hire;10 or sporting events) where you agree to provide the service on a specific date or within a specific period. However, long-term residential hotel accommodation agreed under a distance contract may be considered to be rented accommodation and therefore subject to the DSRs.

you might have to register for an emergency assistance grant at the jobcentre to get a deposit together to get you into somewhere. You will have to pay this back. JobSeekers' Allowance can take up to 2-3weeks to sort out, and housing benefit may take around the same amount of time.

If you can't find a job, why not register as a jobseeker. It's not much money but enough to get you going.
