Housing and debt helpline for Northern Ireland – 028 9024 5640

Free help with post Christmas housing debt

Local charity Housing Rights is urging people who are worried about paying their mortgage or rent after Christmas to contact them for free advice.

Ursula Toner Advice Services Manager with Housing Rights commented: “We know that many people in Northern Ireland are struggling with debt and will often put off dealing with it until after Christmas.   We want to let them know that free advice and assistance is available and the earlier they seek help the more options are available.”

Housing Rights has a daily housing helpline that provides advice and assistance.  The charity also offers an emergency Court intervention service for people attending Court for debt related possession hearings that threatens their home.

Ms Toner continued: “Living with threat of losing your home is extremely stressful. Our specialist advisers can help people figure out a way forward that is right for them. All our services are absolutely free and it really is never too late to seek advice.”

People experiencing difficulty paying their mortgage or rent can contact Housing Rights helpline on 02890 245640 or visit their public advice website www.housingadviceNI.org.
