​Who we can help

We can offer FREE legal advice where your home may be at risk, you are homeless, or your home is in poor condition (disrepair) affecting your or your family’s health. This includes issues arising due to Covid-19.

We cover Bristol, South Glos, B&NES and North Somerset.

We provide specialist advice & representation for a wide range of problems including complex possession cases, homelessness appeals and judicial review. Types of issues we help with:

  • Repossession of your home where there are alleged rent arrears or other breaches of tenancy, including anti-social behaviour
  • Injunctions for anti-social behaviour, and applications for breaches of anti-social behaviour injunctions
  • All housing issues arising from Covid-19
  • Notices of Eviction
  • Warrants of Eviction
  • Unlawful eviction
  • Mortgage possession proceedings
  • Disrepair affecting your health
  • Advice about your succession rights
  • Discrimination 

We cannot assist with boundary disputes or advise landlords.​

If you are at risk of losing your home please contact us as soon as possible. It is important to seek advice as soon as you receive notice of possession or notice to quit from your landlord. We may be able to help even if you have been given a date for eviction. 

If you have applied as homeless to your local authority and not got the decision you want, we may be able to help you with a challenge to the County or High Court.

Please call 0117 924 8662 (Mon-Fri 10am-4pm) for a phone appointment. 


Court Duty Scheme

We hold a legal aid contract for the housing possession court duty scheme at Bristol County Court and Bath County Court on a shared rota basis. We can advise tenants and mortgagors at court who have a hearing on the possession list on the day we are on court duty, we can provide advice before the hearing and represent the tenant/mortgagor in the hearing. If you require advice from the duty solicitor on the day please bring with you all relevant documents including the court paperwork and arrive at court at least 30 minutes before your hearing. Bristol County Court possession list is usually every Tuesday and Bath County Court possession list is usually once a month on a Friday.
