Do you have a problem with your landlord or letting agent?
If so, Brighton & Hove Council and its partners may be able to help you through their private sector housing services. You can call them on 01273 293156.
If you do have a landlord problem, it may also be worth checking whether they have protected your tenancy deposit as they are legally obliged to. If not, you can win a fine from them of between one and three times the size of the deposit. You can check if your deposit is protected on Shelter's website here.
The Shelter hotline number is: 0808 800 4444
Home Sweet Home has published a Brighton & Hove Tenants Guide which can be downloaded here.
Sadly, as a small organisation we don't have the resources to help everyone, but if you have tried the avenues above and still need some help, do contact us and we'll do what we can to help.
