The leaflets in this series give you an outline of your legal rights. They are not a complete guide to the law and are not intended to be a guide to how the law will apply to you or to any specific situation.

The leaflets are regularly updated but the law may have changed since they were printed, so information in them may be incorrect or out of date. If you have a problem, you will need to get more information or personal advice to work out the best way to solve it. See the 'Further help' sections in each leaflet for sources of information and advice.
