Citizens Advice Cornwall is working with the Legal Advice Centre University House to help those people in Cornwall most at risk of losing their homes.
Free representation is available for those facing possession proceedings in court, and staff working on the project are on hand to provide help and support before the hearing. The scheme covers mortgage repossessions, tenancies and squatters.
It’s often the case that the most vulnerable people do not seek help until the last minute and sometimes do not take advantage of the free service at all so face a greater risk of losing their home and becoming homeless.
If you’re facing possession proceedings at Truro or Bodmin courts get Legal Aid assistance as soon as possible before a hearing date. For help contact email@example.com or call 0208-980-5522 (weekdays 10am-4pm).
