Coronavirus updateFrom 26 March 2020, landlords must give all renters three months’ notice if they intend to seek possession (i.e. serve notice that they want to end the tenancy). And from 27 March 2020, the court service has suspended all ongoing housing possession action – this means that neither cases currently in court system nor those about to go into the system can progress to the stage where someone could be evicted. This suspension of housing possessions action will initially last for 90 days. Further information can be found here. This decision will protect:
- Private tenants
- Council tenants
- Housing Association tenants
- People with licences covered by the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 (England and Wales) including Contractual Tenancies and ‘Non-Secure Tenancies’ of temporary accommodation.
How we can help:
We believe that everyone should have a decent home to live in. So we fight to prevent people from being unfairly evicted and help homeless people win a home. And we help people living in unsafe and unhealthy homes to make their landlords repair them.
We can help with problems like:
- Possession Proceedings in the County Court
- Housing Benefit
- Rent Arrears
- Rehousing and Transfers
We do not provide advice to landlords or help with conveyancing.
We also participate in the Duty Representation Scheme at the Bow County Court.
Contct us by phone or email to see if we can help you and make an appointment.
