This practical guide explores the intricate interwoven relationship between mental health and hoarding. Hoarding is put into context so that the provisions in the Care Act 2014 and the Equality Act 2010, amongst other statutory provisions, can be properly considered. It is the perfect companion to understand how to carry out an eviction and what the pitfalls are when there is a tenant suffering from a relevant mental illness. It also explores what safeguards are in place or to be aware of when considering or defending any action brought against someone who is hoarding.

This book is a must for local authorities, housing associations, landlords and those who represent vulnerable tenants.
