Legal Advice for Tenants
'All the legal help a private renter will ever need'
Advice4Renters' sister service, Renters Legal, provides affordable access to our renowned housing advice services for those who do not qualify for Legal Aid.
We provide informed, impartial legal services and have been doing so for over 30 years. Our costs are simple, upfront, and are far more affordable than equivalent services in private practice.
We can help you with:
Rent Repayment Orders
Social housing allocations
Tenancy agreement checks
Tenancy terms & conditions
Other landlord/tenant issues
We are a charity, so we focus on results, not making a profit. All fees are used for charitable work with vulnerable, low income tenants.
