Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Reasons for eviction

The Housing Executive and housing associations should only evict you if all other ways of solving a problem have failed. They have to follow the right process. This process depends on whether you've been a tenant for more or less than a year. 

Eviction should be a last resort for the Housing Executive and housing associations.  

They should only evict you if other ways to sort out the problems in your tenancy failed. 

Your landlord must follow the correct legal process in order to evict you. If you have a fixed term agreement, your landlord will have to have a reason to evict you. However, if you're a periodic tenant your landlord simply has to follow the correct legal process.

Your landlord needs a reason and must follow the proper process to end your tenancy. They should send you letters and messages explaining what is happening. 

Contact our helpline if your landlord is trying to end your tenancy. We may be able to help you stay in your home.
