Harassment - never be tempted to threaten a tenant or interfere with the property in any
way or you could be accused of harassment. Under the Protection from Eviction Act
1977 there are quite severe penalties for landlords convicted of harassment / threatened or
unlawful eviction, which are criminal offences.
If relations become strained it’s best to avoid personal contact with your tenant/s
without a witness being present, or better still, use a third party such as a letting agent or
solicitor. Otherwise you may be wrongfully accused of harassment, which can be very
difficult to disprove
