A to Z
Council housing - squatters and unauthorised occupants: Outline
The laws on squatting are quite complex and Green Vale Homes cannot simply evict a person who is squatting. However, if any tenant becomes aware of squatters in a property that they know should be vacant - perhaps one tenant has moved out and another has not yet moved in - we would be grateful if the tenant would advise us and we can then commence action. This applies generally to unknown and suspicious occupants. Green Vale Homes cannot know what is happening in all the properties that it owns and they would greatly appreciate the information received from our tenants.
If you see anyone suspicious or who appears to be squatting in a property please use the contact details below so that we can resolve the matter quickly. Any contact will be strictly confidential.
