Term Definition
Eviction
Legal process to oust a tenant for possession of property. In most cases it is illegal for a landlord to evict a tenant without a court order.

The Protection from Eviction Act 1977 also protects tenants against being forced to leave a property through harassment, such as threats or physical violence, or through withdrawal of services such as disconnecting the electrical supply or refusing to carry out vital repairs
