Tenants who live in rented properties have certain legal rights and protection that prevent Landlords from forcing you to leave your home without notice. In order to evict a tenant, the landlord must provide you with formal notice, obtain a court order and then apply to the court for a bailiff warrant. The landlord must comply with this procedure even if the tenant has fallen behind in their rent or they have broken the terms of their tenancy agreement. If this procedure is not followed, you are likely to have been unlawfully evicted.
If your landlord has evicted you without following the correct procedure, you may be able to take legal action against them with the hope of getting your home back and you could even be entitled to compensation.

We can also provide advice on whether you are entitled to receive damages as a result of your landlords unlawful actions.
