Unlawful eviction occurs when your landlord or someone acting on their behalf forces you to leave your home without following the correct legal procedures. Illegal eviction is most common in the private rented sector, but other occupiers, such as local authorities can also be subjected to illegal eviction.
An illegal eviction by local authorities may occur for example, if the local authority fails to follow the correct legal procedure before taking possession of the property or for not giving the tenant the correct minimum notice period.
Other instances – though rare in housing provided by local authorities – include;
- Access to part or all of your home being denied
- Being physically thrown out of the property
- Locks being changed in your absence
- The removal of your belongings from the property
- Threats to leave
These are all criminal offences and if your landlord has or has tried to illegally evict you they may face serious penalties, including the possibility of imprisonment.
