Hello,

You may call the police and your local council about this as it is illegal eviction which is an offence.

May I help further?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
I did call the police and they is a civil matter I should go to court
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 6 days ago.

You should contact them again and perhaps get your council to intervene as it is a criminal matter and the police should get involved.

You may also take proceedings in the civil court for damages.

How much would it cost to get a court Injunction against her
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 6 days ago.

It could take a hew hundred pounds which you may then recover from her in the small claims court.

I would advise you to instruct a solicitor to file court proceedings for you so that you have a good chance of success.

You may find one online or through the law society portal.

All the best. Please leave a positive rating.
