Housing Advice in the Pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed thousands of people to financial hardship and the risk of eviction. It is estimated that approximately 800,000 renters are behind on their rent and a flood of evictions may occur once the current temporary ban on evictions ends on 31 May 2021.

South West London Law Centres is hosting an online event to help local residents/organisations understand the help on offer from our legal aid housing team for those experiencing housing issues such as homelessness and eviction, repairs not being carried out or deposits not being returned, and find out how to access the service.

The event will be held on Thursday 25 March at 11am and will consist of a presentation on housing issues during the pandemic followed by a Q&A with housing solicitor Jeinsen Lam.
