I rent a private property (Victim of harassment or threats?)

If you are in immediate danger - dial 999 and speak to the Police

To  get advice after being threatened or harassed or if you are worried - dial 101 and speak to the Police.

Alternatively, you can seek legal advice from the Citizens Advice or find a solicitor or legal adviser in your area.

Sometimes the perpetrator (person causing these problems) is your landlord, or an associate of your landlord.  If this is the case and they are trying to evict you from your home, seek advice immediately from either the Housing Strategy and Needs' team or the Private Sector Housing team on 01476 40 60 80.

You have legal rights under the Protection from Eviction Act (1977) to ensure that a landlord regains possession of their property in the correct legal manner.
