Scottish Legal Aid Board Housekeeping Project
The Housekeeping Project is a joint project between Moray and Nairn Citizens Advice Bureaux, which aims to prevent homelessness for public sector tenants and mortgage holders, who are at risk of losing their homes primarily due to rent or mortgage arrears.
The project workers provide in court representation at both Elgin and Inverness Sheriff courts, as well as on going assistance with negotiating and communicating with landlords, lenders and other appropriate parties. Clients are advised of the eviction process and their rights and options, to allow them to make informed decisions about their housing situation. The assistance provided may also include help with benefits claims, liaison with the Moray Council Money Advice Team and help with emergency debts.
You can arrange an appointment via telephone, email or by popping into our Elgin Office and speaking to one of our advisers. If dropping in please bring any relevant paperwork you have received (court summons, rent statements or default notices).
