Information on eviction for tenants


The law strictly governs the ability of a landlord to evict a tenant: they cannot just evict you at will, regardless of the reason. If you do not agree to leave the property your landlord will have to get a possession order from a court.

If your landlord evicts you or prevents your entry to the property without legal authority they may be penalised for illegal eviction or harassment.

In this section we have set out information covering a range of issues, including:

  • Different rules for eviction for different tenancy types
  • Lawful reasons for eviction
  • Eviction procedure
  • Notice periods
