A new government service is now available to people in Rother facing possession proceedings which could lead to the loss of their homes.

The Housing Loss Prevention Advice Service (HLPAS) offers government-funded legal advice and legal aid.

Individuals who receive a written notice for possession will be eligible to receive free legal assistance.

The HLPAS will be delivered by housing law experts and provided in two stages.

The first stage will involve the provision of legal advice on housing, welfare benefits and debt issues to individuals facing home possession proceedings, with the aim of resolving problems early and avoiding court proceedings where possible.

The second stage will provide in-court legal representation during possession hearings for those individuals whose cases cannot be solved out of court. To find out more, visit: Legal aid for possession proceedings
