Service for UK tenants requiring advice
Question from Anne Odeyemi updated on 23rd July 2007:
Our expert Jeff Montgomery responded:
You may wish to contact “Shelter” - a London-based housing and homeless charity. Shelter has a comprehensive advice and support section online at http://shelter.org.uk and also offers email advice. You can also contact Shelter’s free housing advice helpline on 0808 800 444. Their advisers can give you immediate and practical assistance, as well as offer advice on your rights. They can also suggest specialist or local support services to help you longer term.
The Department of Building and Housing provides information and guidance on building law and compliance, services including weathertight homes, and advice for tenants and landlords.
