I'm homeless or at risk of being homeless

I am being evicted by my housing association landlord

If your housing association landlord is asking you to leave your home there is action you can take:

  • If you have fallen behind with your rent and your housing association landlord has served you with a notice of seeking possession because of this, make sure to do the following:
    • Check your entitlement to housing benefit and other welfare benefits to make sure you have enough money to cover your rent and other spending.  You can apply for housing benefit and council tax benefit here
    • Contact your housing association landlord to make an agreement to pay off arrears and make sure you stick to the repayment agreement until all your arrears are repaid
  • If it's because of other reasons, such as anti-social behaviour, you should contact your housing association landlord straightaway to discuss and agree a way forward so you can keep a roof over your head
  • Gov.uk also provides useful advice for households in your situation
  • You can also follow the advice here on finding a private rented home
