Landlord gives notice

A landlord starts the eviction process by giving an eviction notice. 

A landlord usually has to go to court to get a possession order if the tenant does not leave when the notice ends. A tenant has the right to stay in their home until they are evicted by bailiffs.

The tenant should contact the council as soon as they get an eviction notice from their landlord. 

The council should help even if it is a council tenant.
