Housing and Tenancy Advice

We know it can be stressful when your housing situation is difficult and we are here to help.

If you are homeless, think you may become homeless, or need some help with the tenancy you already have please contact us.  

 

Our Support and Advice Team offer free, impartial and confidential help across the Mid Devon area 

and we can help you be clear about what your rights and options are. 

How can we help?

I’m homeless

If you have no home and you are sofa surfing or homeless come and see us. We can help practically (shower, clothes washing) and also look at how we can get you some help with your situation

 

I’m being evicted

Eviction proceedings are complicated and stressful. Bring in your paperwork and we can look at what is happening and support you through the next steps

I need a bigger house

It can be hard to find housing at the moment, but we can help you work out how much you can afford, and look for something suitable. 

My home is damp 

If your home is in poor repair we can advise you on what you have a right to expect your landlord to do, and we can also helpyou with some energy advice as well. 

 

I can't manage my rent this month

We can help you look at your finances and come up with a plan and help you explain the situation to your landlord. 

I would like help with my Devon Home Choice (DHC) banding

If you think your DHC banding is wrong, we can look at the reasons for that and advise you on how to appeal that decision.
