Sadly, the lives of those not owning their home are often blighted when, out of the blue, someone takes life-shattering action, causing months of anguish and uncertainty. Some single people and the very lowest earning families may qualify for legal aid. However, “just about managing” couples facing a possession action by their landlord may not qualify for legal aid.
Facing eviction, they have no hope of engaging a law firm and will generally be made homeless. If they dare to take on their landlord through the courts, they must litigate their own defence, whilst their landlord brings in a powerful legal team. They risk having to pay their landlord’s legal fees and court costs if they fail.
The rich can defend themselves; the poor may receive help; but the majority are on their own.
If this scenario strike a chord… maybe Lifeline Legal™ can help.
