Housing

  • Has your landlord brought possession proceedings against you?
  • Have you received an eviction notice?
  • Has your homeless application been rejected by the Council?
  • Is your landlord refusing to carry out repairs to your home?
  • Are you seeking compensation for disrepair to your home?
  • Have you been evicted or harassed by your landlord?
  • Are you a leaseholder in dispute with the freeholder over service charges or other matters?
  • Are you seeking general advice in relation to your tenancy?
  • Are you a homeowner facing repossession of your property?

These are all matters which our Housing department may be able to assist you with.

The Department is led by Bill Parry-Davies. Bill has more than 20 years of experience in housing law and his work has included judicial reviews and cases in the Court of Appeal. 

We have particular expertise in bringing actions against landlords for disrepair, defending possession proceedings for rent arrears and anti-social behaviour, applying to stay eviction warrants and challenging local authorities in relation to homelessness applications.

Will I have to pay?

Many people with housing problems are entitled to free advice and representation under Legal Aid (Community Legal Services Funding).

If you would like to check whether you are eligible for legal aid you can use the Gov.uk eligibility calculator or by contacting the Civil Legal Advice direct on 0845 345 4345.

If you are not entitled to Legal Aid, we will discuss with you other ways of funding your case, including a no win, no fee agreement, using legal expenses insurance or a private funding arrangement. For more details on funding see our funding arrangements page.
