Don’t get evicted – get FREE advice!

Eviction Notice

Burd Ward Solicitor’s housing law specialist Paula Suckley reassures families who are in danger of losing their homes…

If you have received letters from your mortgage company or landlord threatening to take you to court or even received papers from the court then you MUST seek legal advice.

The under occupation charge, otherwise known as the bedroom tax, has seen possession cases rocket in recent months.

Many people are frightened that appointing a solicitor to act on their behalf could be hugely costly if they are not eligible for public funding.

Help is at hand

Don’t worry unnecessarily – we understand that financial problems can happen to the best of us; that is why the FREE Duty Solicitor service at Birkenhead County Court is such a key lifeline for many households. This service is available to all, regardless of income or individual circumstances.

If you have received papers from the court and are worried about attending then please rest assured that this scheme has been helping local people keep hold of their homes for many years. So make sure you turn up and get the vital help that you need.

We would highly recommend that you attend court where we, as Duty Solicitors will be able to offer you the FREE, expert legal advice and representation which will increase the chance of you keeping the roof above your head – your home.

Here at Burd Ward Solicitors we have recently been awarded the contract for the Duty Solicitors Scheme and will be in attendance in court to assist you every step of the way. We are also happy to offer you some initial friendly, reliable advice prior to your hearing. Contact paulasuckley@burdward.co.uk today


First Time Buyers Unlock Their Future

Newlyweds Vicky and Mark from New Brighton had finally found the home of their dreams and as first time buyers, they couldn’t wait to get hold of the keys and move in.

Unfamiliar with complicated processes or the jargon used during property transactions, the couple needed an extra bit of support to help guide them through their first purchase.

Experienced conveyancing expert Michaela Barker hand-held the couple through the initial stages and helped speed the process up by liasing with both the seller and Lender. As members of the Quality Conveyancing Scheme Burd Ward is specially accredited by the Law Society and as such can act for all of the major lenders. This really helps to speed up the process at every level and keeps the buyers in the driving seat.

Just two months after finding their new home, Vicky and Mark had the keys in their hands and were ready to start their new lives together.

The team at Burd Ward could not have been more helpful. It was really scary buying our first home , but Michaela and the team were there every step of the way. We are expecting our first baby in the summer so we may even be on the move again soon!

Email Michaela Barker at mb@burdward.co.uk if you would like help with your first time purchase.
