Eviction by a community landlord

If you rent your home from a community landlord you generally have the right to stay in your home, providing you don’t break the rules of your agreement 

Community landlords should only consider eviction as a last resort.  

The procedure your landlord must follow can be different depending on what type of renting agreement you have. Most people renting from a community landlord have a secure contract, but you could also have an introductory standard contract or prohibited conduct standard contract 

You can find out more in Renting from a community landlord.

Are you under 25? 

If you are under 25, and worried about being evicted, take a look at our Eviction advice page, specifically put together for young people. 

Getting help

If you receive a notice or your landlord has started court action you should get help immediately from an adviser. You might be able to stop or delay the eviction. Even if the bailiffs are on the way, it’s never too late to get help.
