When everyone has a home

Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Violence and abuse


On very rare occasions, criminal gangs may use rented properties as a front for illegal purposes, such as prostitution or cultivation of drugs. If you suspect your rental property is being used in this way, you should contact the police with evidence supporting your suspicions.

Get advice immediately if you think you might become homeless. The Housing Executive has a legal responsibility to give you advice and information on homelessness or you can speak to our advisers at Housing Rights. With the right help, you may be able to stay in or return to your home.
