In Association with Law and You


Getting Housing advice The Law Centre acts for individuals only and does not act for landlords or mortgage lenders. We are able to advise anyone living in Coventry. We have attained the Legal Services Commission's 'Quality Mark' at the Specialist Help level for housing law. We have held this since March 1999.

We will advise both tenants and owner-occupiers about their housing rights. We provide help for individuals facing possession actions, evictions, harassment, disrepair, rent arrears and housing benefit problems related to their housing situation. We also offer advice on homelessness, housing allocation by social landlords, transfers and nuisance issues.

Our advisers are particular experts in representation and advocacy at the Court. The Law Centre has also written a range of leaflets on common housing rights matters. These can be downloaded from this web site or collected from the Law Centre. If you need an interpreter please let us know so that we can arrange for one to be present any interview.

Employment advice Call into the centre or phone 024 76223053 to arrange to speak to someone concerning any Employment issue. We offer a free telephone advice session on Discrimination issues on Wednesday evenings between 4.00 pm and 5.30 pm. The telephone number is 024 76253169. This telephone service is staffed by one of our specialist employment and discrimination workers. We are happy to give advice over the telephone or to take on cases that need our specialist advocacy and representation skills. But please note that we will only advise you if you live in Coventry.

If you think that you will need an appointment or representation then it is best to call the advice line first. This will ensure that you get an appointment at the right time and that the relevant information is obtained at the start.

We will advise on working hours, right to paid holidays, breach of contract, time off for caring for dependents, the minimum wage, grievance and disciplinary matters, maternity rights, dismissal, redundancy and discriminationat work on grounds of sex, race or disability, or any other employment related matter.

Our advisors are particular experts in representation and advocacy at Employment Tribunals and Employment Appeal Tribunals. The Law Centre has written a range of leaflets on common employment issues. These can be downloaded from this website or collected from the Law Centre.

We can obtain interpreters whenever this is required.

Getting Discrimination advice We offer a free telephone advice session on all aspects of discrimination law on Wednesday afternoons between 3.30 p.m and 5.00 p.m. The telephone number is 7625 3169. This telephone service is staffed by one of our specialist employment and discrimination workers. We are happy to give advice over the telephone or to take on cases that need our specialist advocacy and representation skills.
