Housing & Community Care

If you are facing a housing problem, our specialist Housing Law team can help.

Housing law covers any issues arising between a landlord and tenant or between a freeholder and leaseholder. It also includes applications to a local authority by someone who has become homeless.

We represent landlords and tenants, for both freeholders and leaseholders in long lease disputes and for parties in mortgage possession proceedings.

We act for individuals who are locked in dispute with their landlords for example, where they are facing eviction, or repairs haven’t been carried out.

We are one of the few law firms in Barking and Dagenham with a contract from the Legal Aid Agency in the category of housing and we can offer Legal Aid to clients who are eligible. We also offer competitive private rates.

Our housing law department comprises fully qualified and trainee solicitors and a dedicated support team.
