All of us want somewhere safe and secure to live and there can be little more upsetting than the prospect of losing your home. Sadly this is a reality for many people, but with the right advice you may be able to stop it from happening.
The most common reason for facing repossession or eviction is rent or service charge arrears, but some landlords ignore proper processes and may try to force you out of your home through harassment or by changing the locks. Whatever the reason, it is vital you act quickly and come to us as soon as possible.
Our skilled team of lawyers have helped many tenants and leaseholders save their homes, either because the landlord has acted illegally or by making a counterclaim for repairs.
We will deal with your case sensitively and can arrange agreements for reducing the arrears. We will also help you claim compensation for any loss or harm caused or, where you have been locked out, for getting back into the property.
Facing repossession or eviction is not a time you want to worry about costs. Legal aid is available for anyone facing homelessness, but if this isn’t the case, we can help you with a ‘no win, no fee’ funding agreement.
