What is harassment?

Harassment can be anything a landlord does, or fails to do, that makes you feel unsafe in the property or forces you to leave.

Landlords cannot force you to leave without a court order or formal notice being served. 

Examples of harassment

  • Stopping services, like electricity
  • Withholding keys, eg: there are 2 tenants in a property but the landlord will only give 1 key
  • Refusing to carry out repairs
  • Anti-social behaviour by a landlord
  • Threats and physical violence 

If you think you are being harassed you can seek support at the Student Hub.
