  • Advising on rights as a tenant, including condition of tenancy and repairs

We also work in partnership with Fife Law Centre, Citizen Advice Rights Fife and the Fife Migrants Forum.  Through this partnership we are able to provide a package of specialist money, debt, housing and legal advice.   This work is overseen by the Fife Advice Partnership and is funded by the Scottish Legal Aid Board.
