Housing - Evictions
The council can gain possession of a council property through eviction. This mainly occurs if a tenant gets into rent arrears or because of anti-social behaviour. There are other reasons but these are less common.
Households evicted are often then in a position where they are unlikely to be rehoused by the council or a local housing association. People evicted from their homes through rent arrears are likely to be declared intentionally homeless, if they approach the council for further housing.
Anyone who has rent arrears must contact the rent collection service immediately if they want to reduce the chances of eviction. Contact 020 8871 8987 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
