We are currently experiencing a high volume of calls and online chats, our staff are working hard to meet demand on our advice services. Please be aware that there will be delays in our response. If you are unable to speak or chat to an adviser please look at our online advice pages in the meantime.
My situation is urgent
Ring the helpline if your situation is urgent, for example if you:
- have nowhere to sleep, or might be homeless soon
- have somewhere to sleep, but nowhere to call home
- are/could be at risk of harm
- feel very overwhelmed about your housing situation
- are being evicted
- are facing court proceedings.
Our helpline is very busy. If you have problems getting through, please keep trying, or use one of the other options below.
My situation is not urgent
- a dispute with your landlord about a tenancy deposit
- rent or mortgage arrears but court proceedings have not yet started
- a home that needs repairs but you are not at risk of harm from the conditions.
Don’t worry if you are not sure if your situation is urgent. You can still ring us but be aware that you might need to wait in a queue and you may need to try to ring us a few times.
What to expect when you ring
Having documents (tenancy agreements, court papers, council letters etc.) to hand will help us understand and deal with your problem. Having a pen and paper can also be helpful.
