Eviction from a rented property
My landlord wants me out
This topic is aimed at tenants who are risk of losing their tenancy. If you are living in a council or Housing Association home but are not the tenant, you may be a 'qualifying occupier' - for more help see Qualifying Occupiers.
If your landlord tells you that you need to leave, you may still be able to stay. This will depend on::
- the type of occupation agreement you have, and
- the reasons why your landlord wants to evict you.
There are a number of places you can get help and advice. For example, the council and other agencies can help you by:
- checking your landlord has followed the correct procedures to regain possession legally
- negotiating with the landlord to see if it is really necessary for you to be made homeless
