What kind of issues does the Housing team deal with?
We can help where your home may be at risk, you are homeless, or your home is in poor condition and this is affecting your or your family’s heath.
Our housing team deals with the following kinds of issues:
We cannot assist with boundary disputes or advise landlords.
What kind of help and advice can I get?
We provide specialist advice and representation on a wide range of housing problems including complex possession cases, homelessness appeals and judicial review.
The team has a willingness to fight for the rights of tenants and owner occupiers and use our knowledge of the law in an imaginative way to take important challenges forward.
We may be able to help you even if the court bailiffs have given you a date for eviction. However, when your home is at risk it is important to seek advice at the earliest stage, as soon as you receive notice of possession or notice to quit from your landlord.
If you have applied as homeless to the local authority and feel that an incorrect decision has been made then we may be able to assist you with a challenge to the county court or to the high court.
If you are at risk of losing your home please contact us as soon as possible.
