Before you begin...

We can't help you if you need advice on housing in England, Scotland, Wales or the Republic of Ireland. We can only help if your question is about housing in Northern Ireland. The links on our footer menu will take you to websites that can help with housing problems in other countries.

Our answer will be based on the information you provide and will give you general guidance on your housing options or how to resolve your problem. We'll try to respond as quickly as possible, but it may take up to 3 working days before you get an answer.  If your situation is complicated or you need help urgently, it may be best to speak to one of our advisers. 

Make sure you read and understand our terms and conditions before you begin. Required entry fields are indicated with a *. If you are concerned about the safety of your personal information, please read our Data Protection statement.

Your question

This service is only for people who are living in Northern Ireland or who want to know about housing law in Northern Ireland.

The law is different in England, Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland so we can't help if your question is about housing in these countries.  If you need advice on housing in England, Scotland or Wales contact Shelter.  For advice in the Republic of Ireland contact your local Citizens Information service. 

Please tell us which Northern Ireland council area you live in. If you need advice on housing in England, Scotland or Wales, please visit Shelter and if you need advice on housing in the Republic of Ireland, please contact Citizens Information
