HOUSING

If you have a housing matter, you can come to our Housing drop-in clinic, which takes place every Monday from 10am to 1pm (excluding bank holidays). There is no need to book an appointment, we see clients on a first come first served basis. This clinic is run by law students and organised by BPP College of Law.

We will assess your case for Legal Aid eligibility at the drop-in clinic. If we are able to take on your case, we will invite you to attend an appointment where we can give you substantive legal advice. If you fit within Legal Aid requirements, we can help you free of charge. All our advice is impartial, independent and confidential.

We offer legal advice if your matter is in scope for Legal Aid for the following issues:

  • Homelessness;
  • Repossession and Eviction by Landlord;
  • Serious Disrepair – resulting in the removal of serious risks to occupier health and safety (claims for damages are out of scope).
  • We prioritise helping local residents, and we do not represent landlords.

The Law Centre was set up in 1970 to find the scourge of rogue landlords in North Kensington at that time. Ever since then, we have fought for tenant’s basic housing rights to ensure they have access to justice.
