Housing Law News and Comment
Nearly Legal is a specialist housing law website for England (and occasionally Wales), run by solicitors and barristers practising in the field.
The site provides information, updates and discussion on housing and landlord & tenant law.

Contents include frequent case reports, updates on statute law, guides and key documents.
