Housing Support

Housing problems can happen to anyone and specialist advice is crucial because housing issues are often complex.

We can support IET members and their immediate families across a broad range of housing issues.

Our new partnership with Shelter in England and Wales aims to give you personalised support with housing issues whether you rent, are having mortgage difficulties, or are at risk of homelessness. Shelter's expert advisers will work through housing related issues and help you develop an action plan of the best next steps, as well as potentially acting as a mediator in disputes.

Issues may include

  • Mortgage arrears
  • Rent arrears
  • Disputes with lenders or landlords
  • Domestic abuse
  • Property becoming unsuitable due to a change in circumstances

Financial support

If you are having financial difficulties as well, IET Connect may be able to provide you with some short-term financial support to assist with one-off needs or day-to-day living costs.

Free legal advice

If you need to understand your rights or legal position, IET Connect’s free legal advice line can help.  It is provided by legal specialists at Law Express and covers a broad range of employment related topics including compromise agreements, unfair dismissal and contracts.  It is available to IET members in the UK and other EU countries
