Housing and Homelessness

The unfortunate rise in personal debt and pressure on the cost of living is threatening many families’ ability to pay their essential housing costs.  If you’re facing homelessness due to potential landlord eviction or house repossession due to mortgage arrears, Mayflower Solicitors may be able to provide you free legal assistance under our contract with the Legal Aid Agency.
