eleafletWhat if I'm at risk of losing my home because of my landlord?

There are laws to make sure your landlord treats you fairly. They can't just throw you out of your home without warning, even if you are behind with your rent. For more about how your landlord must treat you (and how you must deal with your landlord), see Renting and Letting.

Landlords have to follow the proper legal procedure if they want you to leave - they can't just change the locks when you are out. This is true whether you rent from the council, a housing association, or a private landlord.
