What is public law?
The rule of public law means that the actions of public bodies like government, councils, housing associations and other local authorities are subject to scrutiny. If the council, government or housing association who owns your home fails you in some way, then public law could be on your side in your search for justice.
Our public law specialists are on hand to help fight for your rights to privacy in your home and family life, as well as the right to safe and suitable accommodation.
Right to privacy
In line with the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), everybody in the UK has the right to privacy in their home and family life. If you are wrongfully evicted, this could be deemed to contradict that right. The court will assess the proportionality of making an order for possession that could see you evicted from your home and decide whether it goes against your rights or not.
