Harassment and illegal eviction is a serious criminal offence and a breach of civil law. The council has powers to prosecute anyone who commits such an offence.
The law says that if your landlord wants to evict you, the correct legal proceedings must be followed. These procedures will vary according to the type of tenancy agreement you have. Read our leaflet
