Legal & financial > Legal advice
Legal advice is necessary when elderly people are considering particular actions, because lawyers know how to apply the law to individual circumstances. The need for help from a lawyer who interprets the law is essential in protecting the interests of older people, especially for example when buying or selling a home. Most lawyers specialise, for example in conveyancing or criminal law. There are several organisations, including Citizens Advice, that can help in finding a lawyer who specialises in particular problems. Law centres provide independent advice and representation for disadvantaged people, and they specialise in social welfare law which includes housing and homelessness, community care, discrimination and welfare rights.
