Illegal eviction and harassment

If you are a landlord and want advice about how to end a tenancy, or you are a tenant and are concerned about your landlord's actions, please contact us.

It is our responsibility to ensure that landlords comply with the law, act as an advisor to individuals and businesses and help them to comply with legal obligations without unnecessary expense. It may also be necessary to take firm action in some circumstances to regulate those who may ignore the law or act irresponsibly. Cheshire East Council accepts and acknowledges its responsibilities in ensuring that residents in the borough are not illegally evicted or harassed by their landlords.

Below is a range of factsheets to help people in the Private Sector understand their housing rights and responsibilities. These factsheets are courtesy of Shelter.
