Legal Aid Now Available for All Tenants Facing Eviction

Posted on August 2nd, 2023

Housing Loss Prevention Advice Service

Government-funded legal advice and representation (legal aid) is available to any tenants facing possession proceedings.

Help is available from the moment tenants receive written notice that someone is seeking the possession of their home. Tenants financial situation will not affect their right to access this support and they will not need to pay.

A housing expert (funded by the government) will work with tenants to identify what may be causing someone to seek possession of their home and recommend potential solutions. For example, they may be able to provide legal advice on matters such as:

  • illegal eviction
  • disrepair and other problems with housing conditions
  • rent arrears
  • mortgage arrears
  • welfare benefits payments
  • debt

In the event tenants are unable to resolve matters and they are asked to attend a court hearing, a housing adviser can also provide free legal advice and representation at the court.
