Note: You have a right to safe and secure housing which is suitable for you and your children (not damp, not overcrowded). There are also laws to protect people. If you are facing any kind of housing issue, it’s important to get good advice as soon as you can. Examples of when you might need help include if you’re at risk of homelessness for any reason, for example relationship breakdown, domestic abuse, eviction for rent arrears or if there’s overcrowding or you need help with housing costs, housing arrears, furnishings and so on. You can find out more about housing rights from our Advice and Information Service.
