Everyday problems can have legal answers

Solving problems with your house and home

Many problems in our lives can have legal answers.

Understanding whether your problem has a legal aspect could help you resolve it.

Victorian Law Week is an opportunity to identify where the law can help with these and many other common problems.

  • Look at problems with mould and damp
  • Get support with a difficult landlord
  • Manage debt and mortgage stress

You can use self-help resources or contact community organisations to assist with issues about your home.
