Unlawful eviction


Being forced to leave your home is upsetting and stressful whatever the circumstances. But if your landlord has evicted you without following the correct procedures, they may have broken the law and you may be able to take action against them.

A landlord may wish to evict you for many reasons but even if you have fallen behind on your rent or have broken the terms of your tenancy, your landlord still has to follow the correct procedures when asking you to leave.
