Now we come across many strange and illegal methods that landlords try when it comes to removing their tenants. Changing the locks is a very popular one and again illegal and could hamper any legal actions taken to remove a tenant.

However, when we heard that Birmingham landlord had blasted out music to remove his tenant, it must top the methods we have come across so far. It seems the property was prime for a school redevelopment and the landlord was desperate to sell and cash in on the opportunity. The property is located in one of the more desirable areas of Birmingham so the actions would have seemed ever further removed from reality. It seems the landlord gained entry to the property with a team of what was described as henchmen and started to pump up the volume. In addition to eviction by music, consistent banging on the front door and several threats were carried out in an attempt to remove the tenant.

As previously mentioned the landlord wanted to sell the property as part of a school expansion scheme.

Unfortunately for the landlord this method is illegal and was unsuccessful with the result being that he was found guilty of harassment and fined over £3000 for his troubles.

As much as we support and help landlords around the country there is a right way and a wrong way to remove a tenant from one of your properties and clearly this is the wrong way. It seems that the landlords was advised by both the council and a third party about following due legal process, he decided to try and speed things up by harassing and intimidating a tenant. Which ironically has actually extended the eviction process.
It is worth remember that the actions of this particular Birmingham landlord is in the minority and from our experiences most landlords and tenants have a good relationship.
To finish on a lighter note what tunes do you think might have been played?
