Landlord Disputes

Possession and Eviction Proceedings, including Unlawful Eviction

We can assist you if your landlord has issued court proceedings against you or is trying to evict you. We can assist you prior to the issue of court proceedings where you have received a notice asking you to leave your accommodation. Uncertainty in this situation is obviously a worrying and stressful time and we aim to ensure that you are in this position for as short a time as possible.

Homelessness

Homeless Housing Applications to Local Authorities

Once you have made a homeless housing application to the Local Authority, we can assist you with making representations regarding your application including submitting further information on your behalf or challenging any negative decision. We are experienced in the criteria Local Authorities use, maximising your chance of success in your particular circumstances.

Reviews (s202) and Appeals against Negative Decisions by Local Authorities (s204)

Should the original decision go against you, we can help you to review this. If the review decision is negative also then we can assist you with lodging an appeal to the County Court if there are merits. It is worth noting we can do this regardless of whether we assisted you with your original homeless housing application.
