Court Duty Scheme
The Court Duty Scheme provides last-minute emergency advice for people facing eviction who have a court hearing.
A specialist Housing Advisor from BHT attends the County Court in Lewes when repossession cases are being heard.
However, we would strongly recommend you contact BHT Eastbourne Advice as soon as you are given notice of possession by your landlord or mortgage company.
This service is available to all tenants or mortgage-holders facing eviction or repossession who have a hearing listed on that day. Our Housing Adviser might be very busy on the day, so you need to arrive at court about 30 minutes before your hearing is listed.
When you arrive, ask at the court for the BHT Housing Advisor.
