Hi, thank you for your question. Was there a notice of eviction, or warrant, by a court that led to her moving out? If not, was it a voluntary move out?
Was there any formal notice to quit from either of them to the other?
Thank you for confirming. Given that there has been no formal eviction process he is illegally evicting her and this is a criminal offence. Your daughter should contact him and inform him that he must allow her access to the property and put him on notice that she will contact the local council tenancy relations office (or housing office) who can assist her with this. She would also be entitled to contact the police on 111 and inform them that she is not being allowed back to the property. What your landlord is doing is a criminal offence under the Protection from Eviction Act 1977.
