This toolkit tells you what you need to know if you think you have been illegally evicted. It is illegal for your landlord to evict you without first going to court and getting an eviction order. Without an eviction order, your landlord can’t do anything that prevents you from having access to your home. If your landlord gets an eviction order, only a sheriff’s deputy or court bailiff can physically remove you and your belongings from your home.
For general information about what to do if you think you have been illegally evicted, read the Articles on this page. Review the Common Questions if you have a specific question.
