As a home owner, you can only be evicted if your lender or freeholder has a legal reason (grounds) and the correct procedure is followed. Repossession doesn’t happen automatically. It may be possible to stop the eviction at any stage in the process.

Eviction & Repossession

All landlords have to follow special legal procedures in order to evict tenants. There are laws to protect you. Whether or not your landlord can evict you and how the process works will depend on the type of tenancy you have. If your landlord doesn’t follow the right procedure, s/he may be committing a criminal offence.
