Using Advice Search

You can use Advice Search to get legal information from over 300 recommended advice sites.

Select a topic you are interested in and Advice Search will provide you with links to other websites offering information on that area of law.  If you don't know what topic you need, have a look at our topic descriptions.

Or you can search by entering a word or phrase.   For example, you could type in 'I am being evicted' or 'eviction'.   You will get better results by using a key word (or words), such as 'eviction', than by asking a question.  Advice Search will present you with a choice of websites that best match your query.

For each choice, you’ll see:

  • the name of the organisation or website
  • the subject of the website (or pages)
  • a summary of the website (or pages)
  •  the percentage (%) relevance of the website (or pages) - how closely the document matches your query
  • the date this website (or pages) was last modified.

Use the new search button to change your question or key word.

If you have a complaint about any website we link to, you should complain  to that site. But feel free to let us know too, using the Feedback facility.
