Housing advice and homelessness
St Albans City and District Council are here to support you if you’re struggling with your housing.
We can provide a range of advice depending on your situation, and if you’re homeless or threatened with eviction in 56 days, we can go through a homeless application with you.
Due to the lack of social housing in the district, the Council will work to help you get into alternative accommodation.
