Collecting a cheque from Ekrom Ali, Nationwide Assistant Branch Manager

In May 2019, Citizens Advice Peterborough successfully applied to the Nationwide Community Grants Programme and were awarded just over £41,000 towards our work on Prevention of Homelessness. The community grant enabled us to recruit a specialist Prevention of Homelessness Adviser to support and advise clients at risk of losing their home.

Thanks to the support of Nationwide, our Homelessness Prevention adviser is able to advise our clients on the following issues:

  • Rent arrears
  • Negotiating with the landlord
  • Possession proceedings – assistance with completing the defence
  • Section 21 notices – assistance with completing the defence only
  • Outright possession orders – assistance with setting aside or varying an outright possession order to a suspended possession order on terms
  • Suspended possession orders – assistance with changing the terms of the order
  • Warrant of possession – assistance with setting aside or suspending the warrant
  • Domestic violence, relationship breakdown and actual homelessness
  • Threat of eviction
