If you fail to leave - Self eviction unlawful

< Back to list

In residential tenancies it is unlawful for a lessor or agent to enter and remove you from the premises themselves. This is called ‘self eviction’ and is an offence.

If this happens, you can report the offence to the RTA and the lessor or agent could be fined.
