Coronavirus – update from Advice Services

The current coronavirus emergency has left many people concerned about their housing. The Government has introduced some changes which give many people some additional temporary protection from eviction at this difficult time. However, the legislation does not cover everyone.

BHT Advice Services in Brighton, Eastbourne & Hastings are open and continue to provide specialist advice services in housing and asylum/immigration matters. Whilst our offices are not open to the public we are providing advice by telephone, email and other media. Our services are funded by the Legal Aid Agency and by Local Authorities and this means there are certain restrictions to the service which you can read about on each area webpage.
