What help can we offer you?

We assist individuals only, we do not act for landlords or mortgage lenders. We offer housing advice, representation and advocacy at court.

We operate under a Legal Aid Contract and can offer housing advice to individuals who qualify for legal aid.

We advice tenants about a wide range of housing matters including help and representation at court for:

  • individuals facing possession proceedings;
  • rent arrears;
  • injunctions; and
  • anti-social behaviour proceedings.

We advice on all aspects of homelessness and judicial review in a housing context.

We do not offer assistance in relation to enquiries regarding Birmingham City Council's Housing Allocation Scheme or housing benefit issues.

How can you access this service?

You can be referred to us by an organisation that is already supporting you. Our ability to take on cases is subject to capacity.
