Retaliatory eviction during the coronavirus outbreak

The government has brought forward a package of measures to protect renters affected by COVID-19 (coronavirus). With these in force, no renter in either social or private accommodation will be forced out of their home.

The council will still investigate complaints of harassment and illegal eviction. Where a complaint is received the case officer will contact you to advise accordingly.

Please note that tenants quitting properties with fixed period tenancy agreements early are still liable for the rent until the end of that fixed period. Further information on how to end a fixed term tenancy early is available from Shelter
