House the Homeless has been accepted as a Charitable Trust, with effect from 5th November 2012. Eligible donations made after that date are entitled to Gift Aid, the charity is registered with HM Revenue & Customs (ref: XT39119), relevant documents are available on request.
We do casework and provide information on tenants’ rights, particularly when there is confusion about eviction procedure: many tenants do not fully understand the various stages most landlords/ladies (other than for lodgers) seeking possession must go through, serving the correct notice in the right way (usually Section 21 or Section 8 of the Housing Act), then obtaining a possession order and getting a bailiff to carry out the eviction. This advice helps many tenants avoid eviction.
House the Homeless are proud to announce the launch of their new website. We hope you enjoy looking around the site. Click now to find out more about us and also how you can support and help us, help the homeless!
