Along with the telephone number, the Lisbon Council will also provide an email address - infodespejos@cm-lisboa.pt - also available to citizens as of Friday.

 

Marques, who alis also responsible for Liocal Development, explained that the line will provide "basic information to citizens who are being evicted or at risk of eviction du to no contract renewal, as a result of legislation in force," but restated that it, "is not a line for housing allocation" nor for, "legal support."

 

"It is a line for collection of information so that the Lisbon City Council (CML) has in its entirety of what is happening in the territories and can quickly advise citizens," he said.

 

Marques also revealed that the Lisbon council is in "talks with the Lisbon Bar Association and Tenants' Association" that may "provide what the CML cannot and should not do, which is to offere legal advice to citizens."
