There are certain things that your landlord is legally required to do if they want you to move out of your house.
These things will vary according to what type of tenancy agreement you have, however there are some things that nearly always count as a criminal offence:
- changing the locks while you are out
- threatening you or forcing you to leave
- physically throwing you out
- stopping you from getting into certain parts of your home
