It is illegal for your landlord to evict you without following the proper steps. It does not matter if your landlord wants to evict you because of COVID-19 – they must still follow the same steps.
It is likely to be an illegal eviction if your landlord:
- makes you leave without notice or a court order
- locks you out of your home.
If your landlord tries to evict you, seek advice urgently. Contact your local council, Rent Smart Wales or the police if you think you have been illegally evicted because of COVID-19.
