Ndifuna Ukwazi Housing Clinic
The Ndifuna Ukwazi Housing Clinic is Cape Town based and provides pro bono (free) legal assistance (legal advice and legal representation) to qualifying people in resisting their eviction and displacement. The Clinic specialises in helping tenants who are facing an eviction application, who have been illegally evicted and are experiencing unfair rental practices. It does not charge for its services: it is a pro bono service.
An individual/household must meet the basic means test. We do not have any additional qualification criteria in order to be assisted with legal advice on matters within our expertise. For pro bono legal representation individuals/households must meet the these additional qualification criteria:
- For representation in eviction applications, a person must be at risk of homelessness if eviction application were to succeed
- Eviction Application must be in the Cape Town Magistrates’ Court, Wynberg Magistrates’ Court or Khayelitsha Magistrates’ Court (Western Cape Division of the High Court is dependent on securing probono legal counsel)
- Representation in a Western Cape Rental Housing Tribunal is only provided in respect of a complaint pertaining to exorbitant rent increases.
All legal assistance is subject to available capacity.
