We recognise that Court proceedings and the threat of losing your home can be very worrying and stressful. We can help.

In most cases a landlord or mortgage lender must apply to court for a possession order before the property can be lawfully repossessed.  Often this is because of rent or mortgage arrears. Alternatively there may be allegations of breach of a tenancy or mortgage condition or your landlord may simply want the property back so that it can be sold or re-let. We recommend that you seek advice as early as possible as there may be a defence to the claim.

Once your landlord or mortgage lender has a possession order they may be entitled to apply to the court to evict. We may be able to apply to court for you to postpone the eviction.

  • Have you received notice of possible court proceedings?
  • Has a claim for possession been issued against you?
  • Are you threatened with eviction by bailiffs?

If so, we can help.
