Legal aid for housing issues available at Hopkins

Legal aid is being slashed by the Government despite the fact the number of people being evicted from their homes is rising and landlord repossessions are at a five year high. The Independent reports the number of law firms still able to offer legal aid are dwindling. Hopkins are one of a select few solicitors in Nottinghamshire that can still offer legal aid for housing issues.

The Bureau, states that just half of face-to-face housing advice available on legal aid was used last year despite soaring repossessions. One of the main reasons for this is the confusion around eligibility since the legal aid cuts in 2013. People also don’t know where to turn to for help, they are using national telephone advice lines and not-for-profit agencies who don’t have legal aid contracts.

People are needlessly being evicted from their homes because they are unaware of the free face-to-face help and legal advice that is available to them. The easiest way to cut through the confusion regarding legal aid for housing issues is to simply find an organisation that can offer legal aid, pick up the phone and ask if you are eligible.
