My housing association is saying I am unlawfully subletting my flat, but I’m not. What can I do?

Accused of subletting a council property | Illegal Subletting | Unlawful Subletting

Carolyn rents from a Housing Association.  She has a big family who often come and stay with her.

Her landlord has taken her to Court because her neighbours have reported seeing lots of people coming and going.

Carolyn doesn’t know what to do.  She doesn't want to lose her home, it isn't fair.

Carolyn sees an advisor from Swain & Co Solicitors.  She is claiming Income Support and she gets free Legal Aid.

Swain & Co Solicitors listen to her about her family who come to stay.  They can see that she isn’t doing anything illegal and her landlord has got it all wrong.

Carolyn gets Legal Aid and Swain & Co Solicitors represent her in court. The judge hears from Carolyn and her family and can see that she isn’t sub-letting at all.

Carolyn keeps her home and the whole case doesn't cost her a penny.

If you’ve been accused of subletting, speak to Swain & Co Solicitors to ensure the truth gets known.
