Advice • Housing

At Citizens Advice Ipswich we can advise you on all aspects of housing including: rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants, tenancies, housing benefit, rent problems, including establishing ‘fair rents’, advice on eviction and problems with neighbours.

We press for changes in housing law by using our knowledge of how people are affected by the current rules.
