This service is for clients facing possession proceedings at the County Court for rent or mortgage arrears. If you have just received a claim for possession or there is some time before your hearing we may be able to help you better in the first instance if you come into our Wokingham or Woodley offices or into Citizens Advice Reading in Minster Street, Reading.

Clients are seen on a first come first served basis. However, priority is given to clients with a hearing that day.

The service is operated jointly by Citizens Advice Wokingham and Citizens Advice Reading.

When you arrive
Please go through the door into the court. The security guard will ask to check your bag. Carry on to the lift and go to the 3rd floor. From there follow the signs to the Citizens Advice office. If you have a hearing you may want to check in with the usher, also on the 3rd floor, so they know you are in the building, before coming up to see us.

If you have a hearing and have already been to see us we suggest you arrive at least 20 minutes before the scheduled time. If you have a hearing and have not been to see us before we suggest you arrive an hour before the scheduled time.

What to bring
Please bring with you as much information as you can about the issue you want to discuss. It is particularly important to bring all relevant paperwork; otherwise we may have to ask you to come back when you have it.
