In this section you will learn about your rights and responsibilities when it comes to housing issues. You will also find information on what to do if you find yourself threatened with eviction or can’t keep up the payments on your mortgage.
From dealing with neighbour disputes (concerning land, boundary walls/fences, noise, children, pets, etc.) and environmental issues (e.g. litter, pest control, abandoned cars, etc.) to dealing with anti-social behaviour such as harassment, bullying, vandalism and noise – our advisers and online guides can help you find the answers to your questions.
Q. I need a place to live – can you help?
Q. My rented home needs repairs – what can I do about it?
Q. I’ve received a Notice of Proceedings for rent arrears – what can I do?
