Experiencing problems when it comes to your home and welfare can have a devastating effect on your life and the lives of your family. Osbornes have one of the largest, most specialised social welfare legal teams in London. The department predominantly acts for tenants, both private and council and takes cases involving housing, welfare benefits and community care.
Our team has particular experience in helping individuals who are experiencing problems with their local authority. In addition to local authority tenants we act for housing association tenants, leaseholders, private tenants and the homeless to resolve housing issues. We assist people with a wide range of needs and from all backgrounds.
The team regularly undertakes Judicial Review applications across these areas in order to get results for our clients.
The department has a public funding contract and is able to offer advice to those clients who qualify under the scheme. We also offer clients alternative funding methods for those who do not qualify for public funding.
