Free Legal Advice Forum ?

Options
Hi,

I once stumbled across an internet 'free legal advice' forum which basically was a forum where you could ask a solicitor for advice on any point of law, etc. Unfortunately I can not remember what the site was called, can any one give me a web address for a site of this nature. I know that there is the CAB but it's quite a struggle for me to get to one. :smiley:

    If you have legal expenses/ protection on your home insurance this will include a free 24/7 advice line manned by solicitors.

    I would certainly want to know any forums vetting process to ensure that the people posting answers are qualified as they claim rather than just someone who has read a few things and think they know it all - I have seen some very wrong advice given on this forum from people holding themselves up as experts.

    The CAB website is adviceguide.org.uk - this has information on various aspects of the law but I don't think it allows you to ask questions of a solicitor, it isn't a forum-type site.

    You might find other legal advice centres where you can drop in in the evening (they might offer one or two sessions a week). I have worked for a solicitor who did one session a month as part of her pro bono contribution.

    Hi,

    In my Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement, I have to give 1 month's written notice to end the tenancy. If I give notice on the 1st January what is the last day of the tenancy/what day do I need to leave?

    Thanks.

    It's unusual for a tenancy agreement to start on the first of the month. What are the dates on your AST agreement?
