Engage before eviction

We know that eviction is often the last resort and extremely stressful and costly for tenants and landlords. This is a free and impartial service to landlords in the Lewes & Eastbourne District Councils to engage with us prior to serving an eviction notice. We can offer advice on tenancy issues including rent arrears as well as mediation services. We look to prevent homelessness at the earliest opportunity.
