Hopkins Solicitors and the Mansfield CAB Advice Hub are working together to provide free housing advice and legal support to the Mansfield community.
Hopkins’ Housing Law solicitors will be holding advice sessions every Friday at the CAB Advice Hub offices on Regent Street in the town centre. Free advice appointments will be available for anyone who is experiencing public or private sector housing problems, and is eligible for Legal Aid funding. Although there have been much publicised cuts to Legal Aid over the last 12 months, particularly in family cases, Legal Aid is still available in the majority of housing cases.
Carl Wright, Housing Law Partner at Hopkins explained, “As a local Mansfield firm, we want to provide free housing advice to members of our community who are experiencing housing problems. Particularly at this time of the year, we know that people may be struggling to pay their rent and that this could put them at risk of eviction or homelessness. It is important in such situations that people can easily access much needed advice and support.”
“We already hold free housing advice sessions at our offices; however people can sometimes find the thought of visiting a solicitor’s office quite daunting, so working with the CAB enables us to meet people at the Advice Hub in an environment in which they feel comfortable.”
For more information or to make an appointment at the housing advice session, please contact Hopkins Solicitors in Mansfield or Mansfield CAB Advice Hub.Request a Callback
