Hello, I am thinking of taking a debt relief Order, as struggle with mental health, financial issues and health. If I take a DRO can my landlord evict me if he wants too? I live with my wife and we rent. Also in future will it stop us renting somewhere new?

The terms of your existing tenancy agreement will say whether you can be evicted due to a DRO but I would find that unlikely.  Getting a new lease with a different landlord may be a problem if you have a DRO as they might do credit checks and be put off. 

You may need to use a private landlord who doesn't do the checks or is more accommodating, or get someone to be a guarantor for you. 

Make sure you have taken advice that a DRO is the right option for you before you sign up. 01752 786800
