An up-to-date and practical guide to advising the victims of unlawful eviction and harassment. The focus of the book remains the rights of occupiers against their landlords. But the enjoyment and security of home life may also be disrupted by others - such as stalkers, neighbours and neighbourhood gangs. The book leads the adviser through the various remedies available not only to assist victims of unlawful eviction but also to combat other forms of anti-social behaviour. The sixth edition of "Quiet Enjoyment" has been significantly expanded: the chapter on grounds for civil proceedings has been fully reworked to take in grounds against those unconnected with landlords; the comprehensive digest dealing with quantum awards for unlawful eviction includes cases over the last nine years; the chapter on civil procedure has been revised to take account of the CPR 1998; and a new Part III covers the remedies available against other kinds of anti-social behaviour.show more
