Landlord harassment is the willing creation, by a landlord or their agents, of conditions that are uncomfortable for one or more tenants in order to induce willing abandonment of a rental contract. This is illegal in many jurisdictions, either under general harassment laws or specific protections, as well as under the terms of the rental contracts or tenancy agreements.

  • Landlord harassment is the willing creation, by a landlord or their agents, of conditions that are uncomfortable for one or more tenants in order to induce willing abandonment of a rental contract. This is illegal in many jurisdictions, either under general harassment laws or specific protections, as well as under the terms of the rental contracts or tenancy agreements. This kind of activity can be more common in regions where rent control laws apply to tenancies, with rent-controlled prices not extending to the subsequent tenancy, thus allowing landlords to set higher prices when the current tenant leaves. Harassment of tenants may include practices such as withholding maintenance, assault, verbal harassment, or written harassment. One example is sexual harassment, also known as "sex for rent". This practice involves landlords letting properties, rooms, or other accommodation to people in return for sexual favours. This issue has been raised by both UK media and MPs, with the then Secretary of State for Justice, David Lidington, suggesting that such arrangements are in breach of the Sexual Offences Act 2003, stating "... an offence is committed when a person offers accommodation in return for sex, as they are inciting/causing another person to have sex with them in return for 'payment'".
