Unlawful Eviction

Unlawful eviction in the United Kingdom is a grave infringement upon tenants’ rights and is strictly prohibited by law. It transpires when a landlord endeavors to expel a tenant from their rented premises without adhering to the requisite legal procedures or obtaining a court order. These unlawful actions may encompass changing locks, disposing of tenants’ belongings, or resorting to threats or physical force to coerce the tenant into vacating the property. The Protection from Eviction Act 1977 safeguards tenants against such unjust practices, offering legal recourse and protection to those facing unlawful eviction. Landlords found guilty of such actions can face severe penalties, including fines and potential imprisonment, underscoring the gravity with which UK law views this violation of tenants’ rights.
