We was 6 tenants in 4 rooms. Council forced landlord to have hmo licence then he said us to leave the house. I was just 3 month i said i will not leave the house. All other tenants left house. Landlord started no topping up electricity. Closing boiler. Clisunf internet. Eventually he chanched lock and i have an email where he sat he will not alliw me to go back to room and to collect my belinfifs he said i need go with police. My intention is have my belongings into the house as much as i can. I have knee broken i cant look for
a new place to allocate them
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 1 year ago

He can't just evict you without notice or without a court order.

You are not a lodger. You are a tenant.

If need be you could get an injunction to get back in.

If you just want to go though and collect your property then send him a message suggesting dates for collection.

If he won't agree then report this to the police as that is just plain theft.

Can I clarify anything for you?

Thanks but my question was not what to do to collect my belongings. It is difficult to me get them. Plus i will go out of the country for s month. The question is. How long can i have my belongings into ny room without collect them?
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 1 year ago

In that case, no more than a week.

If that is an issue for you I would try to get back in.

Ok in this case of unlawful eviction. How long i have to collect ny belongings? I have emails saying i cant go into the house. Only with police he say, but police say the will not go with me. Then how much time i have? I want delay at maximum because he want rent the house to a family and ny belingins into the room will make things difficult to him AND MY KNEE BROKEN IS DIFFICULT FIND A PLACE. At the moment i am in a hostel in a roon shared with 8 persons. I have stuff to fill a medium size van
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 1 year ago

Well, it is as I've said really.

He cannot just evict you in that way.

if you accept the eviction you would have about a week to collect.
