Unlawful eviction

All tenants are entitled to live in their homes in peace, free from harassment, threats or intimidation from their landlords. Apart from a few limited exceptions, a landlord cannot evict a tenant without first giving formal notice, applying to the court for a possession order and then if the tenant does not leave, applying to the court for a bailiffs’ warrant. Only the court bailiffs can carry out an eviction.

If you are being harassed, intimidated or threatened by your landlord or you have been evicted without an order, then we may be able to help.

It may be possible to obtain an injunction to stop your landlord from entering your home or threatening you or requiring your landlord to allow you to return to your home. You may also be able to obtain compensation.
