Your landlord may want to evict you because they believe that you, or someone living with you or visiting you, has been acting in an antisocial way or has been disturbing, upsetting, annoying or harassing neighbours.
Talk to your landlord. Perhaps your neighbours have been complaining unreasonably about your behaviour. Or perhaps you could go to mediation to sort out your problems.
If you admit that there has been anti-social behaviour, you should do everything you can to make sure it stops. You will want to show your landlord and, if your case goes to court, the judge, that the problems have stopped.
If you, or a member of your household have been convicted of anti-social behaviour in the courts, your landlord can use this as a ground to evict you and the court must make an order for possession if the ground is proven. This could apply, for example, if:
- you have been convicted of a serious offence
- you have breached an anti-social behaviour injunction or a criminal behaviour order
- you have breached an order in respect of serious noise nuisance.
If your landlord is a council and decides to try and evict you using this ground, they must inform you in writing that you have a right to request a review of their decision. If you want help to ask for a review, seek advice in your local area. Assured tenants (most housing association and private tenants) do not have the right to ask for a review.
