Housing Advice

Lambeth Law Centre helps and advises tenants with matters involving homelessness, allocations, possession proceedings and rent arrears, We also advise on security of tenure and some disrepair matters.

We run the duty scheme at Lambeth County Court advising residents from Lambeth on possession hearings.

Please note that we do not advise landlords (due to conflict of interest considerations) and unfortunately do not have the resources to provide advice to leaseholders.

The Law Centre helps and advises on housing issues including:

  • Problems paying my rent
  • Notices seeking possession
  • Court summonses
  • Defending possession proceedings
  • Threats of eviction
  • Bailliffs’ warrants for eviction
  • Council refusing to house
  • Council ending temporary accommodation
  • Waiting or transfer lists
  • Damp and disrepair


In cases of emergency such as an imminent eviction date you can attend our Wednesday Drop-In session from 2pm. This is a first come first served session and we are limited to the first five people.

Alternatively, please use our advice contact form.

Note One Lambeth Advice no longer provides Housing Advice and we are no longer funded by LB Lambeth to provide housing advice.
