  • Difficulty paying your mortgage, rent, bills or loans
  • Disputes with your landlord about rent, lease or damaged property
  • Lost or destroyed documents, including Wills, land titles and identification documents

If so, please call us on 1800 113 432, Monday to Friday, 8 am to 6 pm for free legal information, advice and referrals.
