We fight for your rights | Expert advice on Housing Law & Welfare Benefits

Are you suffering with disrepair in your property that has caused or is causing a serious risk of harm? Do you need works carried out to prevent further risk of harm?

Has your landlord threatened to evict you unlawfully?

If so, we may be able to assist.

“We are committed to ensuring tenant’s rights are recognised by their landlord, whether they are a private landlord, housing association or Local Authority.”

We recognise that living in squalid conditions or dealing with a difficult landlord can be very stressful, particularly as this is your home. Our friendly advisers are on hand to provide advice and assistance to you at a time you need it most.

We offer housing advice in Hampshire under our Housing and Debt contract with the Legal Aid Agency which consists of our team of solicitors and advisers offering advice on Housing Law and Debt (so far as this relates to the potential loss of your home).

Due to changes in Legal Aid from April 2013 it is not always possible to have a disrepair claim funded by the Legal Aid Agency. However, in certain cases we are willing to consider alternative ways of funding, such as conditional fee agreements.

Housing Advice

If you wish to discuss concerns, simply call the office to speak to a member of the housing team on 023 92 483322 to book an appointment with an adviser. They will discuss your housing problems with you in this appointment. Your first interview is FREEAt this appointment you will be assessed to see if you are eligible for legal aid and if so we may be able to open a file to assist you further with your housing problem.

Outreach Sessions

In order to offer housing advice across South Hampshire we have set up outreach sessions to ensure there are access points across Hampshire so that we can come to you.

We currently attend:

  • Portsmouth Citizens Advice Bureau, Ark Royal House, Winston Churchill Avenue, Portsmouth, Hampshire, PO1 2GF

If you need an appointment at any of these outreach offices please contact the Havant office on 023 92 483322 to arrange a suitable appointment.

Other areas of law

We have a vast range of solicitors and advisers specialising in many different areas of law. Therefore, where necessary we can also ensure you are offered advice in related matters from our colleagues, whether it is family, personal injury, benefits or community care.
