Trespass

  • Trespass to Property

    • A tenant has the right of possession to the property to the exclusion of all others. Therefore, if someone including the landlord enters the property without the tenant’s permission they are committing an offence of trespass.

    Trespass to goods

    • Trespass to goods relates to any interference or damage to a tenant’s belongings. If this occurs, a tenant is entitled to claim for trespass to goods against the landlord. Evidence will need to be produced such as receipts and proof of damage.
