Will my landlord evict me if I made a claim against them?
This is an understandable concern given the circumstances, but if you are a tenant in a housing association or council house, then your landlord cannot evict you for bringing a housing disrepair claim against them unless you are in arrears without a payment plan in place.
The law differs if you are in private rented accommodation, as a landlord can serve a Section 21 eviction notice which will let them evict you as a tenant without giving specific reasons. We can help you with any enquiries you may have.
