Sometimes just getting a roof over your head isn't as easy as it seems, particularly if you have specific needs.Local authorities have a duty to help older people, the infirm and children, but they don't always fulfil this as they should.
We may be able to help if you think the council has let you down.
The council is not doing its job properly if it:
- hasn’t processed your housing application,
- is taking too long to respond to your request,
- has failed to provide you with temporary accommodation, or
- has offered you unsuitable housing (for example, if you have a disability).
Our solicitors are recognised as experts in this area and, whilst we cannot assist in every case, we manage cases sympathetically and help clients understand their rights and get a fair and timely outcome.
We receive many referrals of this nature from advice centres and other third parties, and so are not currently accepting direct enquiries for this type of case.
