If evicted, obtain from your landlord if possible:
– written, dated evidence of being asked to leave or being evicted;
– a written, dated, signed reference in respect of your tenancy.

Gather together key documents:
– ideally, make copies and leave the copies with someone you trust for safe-keeping
– make a list of names and contact details for family and friends
– pack belongings
– where possible store or sell what you cannot carry with you.

Seek help from family and friends where possible.
