Housing – Legal Aid

We have housing solicitors who can advise under the Governments Legal Aid funding. This covers issues such as:

  • Possession proceedings
  • Evictions and applications for re-entry
  • Very serious disrepair causing serious risk to your health or safety in your home
  • Homelessness – challenging local authority decisions on review and appeal
  • Challenges to the suitability of temporary accommodation
  • Unlawful evictions

Legal Aid Funding

Legal Aid funding is based on your income and savings, and any other capital you have. Before we can advise you we first need to check you’re eligible. We will let you know what to bring to the first appointment to do this.

If you are not able to get Legal Aid funding, we can still provide limited advice at our drop-in sessions in the evening or Thursday morning clinic.
