Illegal eviction (or harassment) may have occurred if your landlord:
- Told you to get out of your home without proper notice
- Physically or verbally threatened you
- Locked you out of your home
- Cut off your gas or electricity
- Stopped you getting into part of your home
In most cases, unless you share the property with the landlord, the law makes it a criminal offence for them to evict you without obtaining a court order.
