It is a criminal offence to evict somebody from residential accommodation without a court order or to harass them into leaving. Bear in mind this does not apply to ‘squatters’ who have broken into a property.
Unfortunately, our very hard working police officers are not always up to date on the relevant legislation and sometimes think that it’s a civil not a criminal matter. Attached is a letter you can show to the police explaining the law. Remember that if you or your possessions are being threatened, then you must dial 999 if you are in danger.
If none of these services are available to you then you might be entitled to free advice from a Law Centre, Solicitor or CAB and you might be eligible for Legal Aid.
Also, check your credit card providers, car and home insurance policies, vehicle breakdown cover and work related benefits; sometimes these will give free legal assistance even if it’s not related to the service they provide, eg, the AA might advise on tenancy issues, not just vehicle related problems.
