Housing advice

Following a voluntary stock transfer in March 2003, Walsall Council no longer has any housing stock.  We have a team of housing advisors based at the Civic Centre who provide advice and assistance on a range of housing issues.  A series of leaflets has been produced which are available to download:
If you need housing advice, please call 01922 653405 to make an appointment. We provide free and confidential help with a range of housing issues, including:
Finding accommodation
Preventing homelessness
Housing and welfare benefits
Understanding your legal rights
Rent and mortgage arrears
Eviction and re-possession
Domestic violence
Disrepair
Further information on homelessness can be found at  
www.homelessblackcountry.org
.
If you own your own home, or are a tenant or lodger, one simple call to our helpline on 01922 653405 will begin the process to get you the right help.  In most cases, we can advise directly but occasionally, we may direct you to other services that can give you more appropriate assistance.
We are able to offer:
A home visit if you need one
An interpreter if your first language is not English
The services of an intermediary if you have hearing or speech difficulties
Offices that are accessible if you have physical or sensory disabilities
An interview with a housing advisor of the same gender if you request this
