How to deal with illegal eviction

This guide is for private renters who:

  • rent the whole property

  • share a house or a flat with other renters

If you live with your landlord

Read this advice if you are a lodger and share living space with your landlord. For example, a kitchen or bathroom. Lodgers have fewer rights than other renters.

You can use this guide if you only share a hallway, stairs or landing with your landlord.

If your landlord is harassing you

It could be harassment if your landlord keeps disturbing you in your home.
