Legal and illegal eviction

What is illegal eviction?

This is when your landlord attempts to force you out of your home without following correct procedures. They cannot (among other things):

  • Change the locks without your consent
  • Physically throw you out
  • Stop you from getting to parts of your home

Landlords must give you the correct notice if they want you to leave, even if you do not have a written agreement. If you have been asked to leave your home by your landlord you should contact the housing options team.
