Housing Law Advice

If you have received a notice seeking possession such as section 21 or court proceedings documents, you should seek urgent legal advice as you are at risk of losing your home.

Our Housing Team at the law centre provides expert advice if you are at risk of eviction.

If you are homeless or at risk of homelessness, we can help you throughout the process dealing with the local authority.

We can also help if your rented home is in poor condition and affecting you or your family’s health.
