Housing and Social Care

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.

5 reasons why you should choose social welfare and housing solicitors at Osbornes:

  • You will be represented by a member of the social welfare department, which has been recognised and recommended by the independent legal directories the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners
  • Throughout your matter you will deal with the same legal team who will keep you updated on the progress of your case and any decisions made.
  • Our reputation in providing advice in housing, debt, community care and welfare benefits to the most vulnerable members of the community including those who suffer from mental health issues, the disabled, the elderly and those with language difficulties.
  • In respect of the welfare benefits clients are advised in relation to Disability Living Allowance, Incapacity Benefit, Housing Benefit, Income Support, Employment Support Allowance, Jobseekers Allowance, Pension Credit, Tax Credit and Industrial Injuries Benefit.
