Defending possessions proceedings

If you are threatened with possession proceedings the Social Welfare Department can assist.

Dealing with possession proceedings can be a daunting experience because there are different laws that apply if you are tenant of a local authority or of a private tenant. Each client has their own particular set of problems and concerns which need to be addressed.

How Osbornes solicitors can help you

Our department focuses on assisting our clients not only with immediate effect to deal with the threat of eviction but also in planning a sustainable way forward to ensure that the problems do not immediately reoccur. The department also offer debt advice to help clients plan a way forward.

We can help you if your landlord has started court proceedings for rent arrears, nuisance, or some other alleged breach of tenancy.

Our experts can also help you  in mortgage possession claims,  and, where possible, negotiate with your mortgage company to come to an amicable settlement.

Our Social Welfare Department has an excellent track record in suspending warrants for possession and at short notice. A suspension is usually made on terms of agreement to make payments, and of course the sooner you come to us after receiving the warrant the better.

Where it is appropriate we will advise you as to whether you should consider bringing a counterclaim in disrepair to any possession proceedings taken against you.

Why choose Osbornes Solicitors

You will be represented by a member of the social welfare department, which has been recognised and recommended by the independent legal directory the Legal 500.
