Debt Advice

We offer advice on all personal debt issues, for example:

  • Rent and mortgage arrears
  • Service charge arrears and forfeiture proceedings
  • Council tax arrears
  • Benefits overpayments
  • Credit debts
  • Bankruptcy and Debt Relief Orders
  • Unpaid gas/electricity bills

We can help you whether you have one debt or several debts and if your debt is small or large.

Specialist advice is available, for example in cases where liability is disputed or a home is at risk. Our team comprises highly experienced advice workers and solicitors.

You do not have to meet any specific income criteria to qualify for our debt advice. We advise people from any London borough.
