Squatters or unauthorised occupants

If you see anyone who appears to be squatting in a property please fill out the on-line form below. Any contact will be strictly confidential.

Stevenage Borough Council cannot be expected to know what is happening in all the properties that it manages and greatly appreciates information from tenants. If any tenant becomes aware of squatters in a property that they know should be vacant, perhaps where one tenant has moved out and another has not yet moved in, they should advise us of this.

The laws on squatting are quite complex and we cannot simply evict a person who is squatting. However, we will take action against a person who is squatting once it is brought to our attention.
