Retaliatory Evictions

  • Evictions following a tenant complaint or request for repairs.
  • Some criminal landlord’s i.e. rogue landlords adopt such tactics to avoid their responsibilities.
  • Intimidated tenants fear their complaint might result in retaliatory eviction.  Some such fears are unfounded.
  • This is not normal practice in that only a minority resort to such measures.
  • It is seldom in a landlord’s interests to evict a good tenant.
  • It is conceivable that a vexatious tenant may claim, landlord impropriety, to avoid accepting responsibility for the real reason for eviction – non payment of rent or other breach of tenancy terms.

About the author


Formerly a student living in a rented room my vision focused on excellence. Letting phenomenal student houses soon became more than a day job - more a way of life.

Continuing to look after our tenants I subsequently also founded what is widely recognised as a phenomenal student lettings agency.
