Housing

We can see you at either our office a the Royal Courts of Justice or at our Citizens Advice Islington site in Upper Street and can provide advice on a range of housing issues for people who are entitled to legal aid.

These include legal advice if:

  • You are HOMELESS or THREATENED WITH HOMELESSNESS
  • You are being threatened with POSSESSION of your home
  • You are being threatened with EVICTION from your home
  • You are seeking REPAIRS to rented accommodation where your landlord is refusing to carry out the repairs and the disrepair pose a SERIOUS RISK OF HARM TO HEALTH OR SAFETY
  • You have been or are being threatened with UNLAWFUL EVICTION
  • You are being harassed by a neighbour or your landlord and require an INJUNCTION to enable you to continue to live in your home safely.
  • Your landlord has applied for an ANTISOCIAL BEHAVIOUR INJUNCTION against you in the County Court

We do not advise, or act for, landlords.
