Housing issues will always arise and therefore you need to know your rights and responsibilities. You could also find yourself threatened with eviction if you can’t cope with your mortgage payments. On these pages you can find information about how to go about renting or buying a home or just finding somewhere to live. You can also find advice on handling problems with your landlord and help to avoid losing your home.
Each local district and borough council has housing officers available to offer advice and support to both homeowners and those in private rented accommodation.
Housing support services are also there to help if you’re having trouble coping with your housing, are at risk of losing your home, or already homeless.
Some councils have funds available to help eligible households with energy efficiency measures. Take a look at your council’s housing page on their website to see if there is anything available that would suit your situation.
