Anti-Social Behaviour - Council Tenants
We want all of our neighbourhoods to live together in harmony. As a tenant, you are responsible for your behaviour and that of your family and visitors, both in your home and in your neighbourhood.
Being a good neighbour
If you, your friends or relatives or any other person living in or visiting your property causes a nuisance to others, or do anything that interferes with the peace, comfort or convenience of other people, you are breaking the conditions of your tenancy agreement.
Anti-social behaviour is defined in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 as:
"Acting in a manner that caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household"
Examples of anti-social behaviour include:
- Using the property for any criminal, immoral or illegal purpose including selling, producing or using any illegal drugs or using the property to store stolen goods
- Animal nuisance
- Abandoned vehicles
- Criminal damage, including graffiti
- Serious noise problems
- Verbal abuse
- Racial/domestic abuse
- Inappropriate parking of vehicles
