Yes. Demoted tenancies can be ended much more easily than secure tenancies. The council doesn’t have to prove a legal reason in court but they have to follow the correct procedure to evict you.
The council must give you at least four weeks’ written notice that they are going to ask the court to evict you and explain the reasons why.
You have the right to ask the council to review their decision, but only if you do so within 14 days of receiving the notice. If you do nothing there is a serious risk that you will lose your home.
Contact an adviser immediately if you receive a notice. An adviser may be able to help you convince the council that you shouldn’t be evicted and can check whether there is any way you can put things right, such as claiming benefits or settling a neighbour dispute.
If the case goes to court, provided the council has followed the correct procedure, the judge is very likely to evict you. In very limited circumstances, you may be able to argue before the court that the decision of the council to evict you was unlawful or that your eviction would not be proportionate. This is however a developing area of law and you will need to seek advice from an experienced adviser before raising such an argument.
