Success tackling ASB19 June 2012
We successfully got two injunctions in court, one that led to an eviction and another that bans a tenant from intimidating and harassing neighbours and their visitors.
We recently got an injunction against a tenant living in Alton Street due to ongoing and persistent antisocial behaviour issues.
The tenant had made several threats to other residents living in his block, and was verbally abusive and intimidating to several other residents and non-residents - including the police. The tenant’s injunction bans him from using, or threatening to use, violence against residents living in his block and to members of the public. The injunctions also ban him from using abusive language or harassing any residents or their visitors.
This is a great result for the residents of Alton Street and the local community who have been long-suffering victims of persistent ASB caused by the tenant.
“The success of this case shows how we are committed to working with residents in an effective and efficient manner to deal with those causing antisocial behaviour,” said Jamie Lock, Head of ASB.
We also got a warrant for possession against a property in Bygrove Street because of antisocial behaviour, after first trying to support the residents living there. After several warnings we got an injunction against a visitor to this property, but after the bad behaviour continued we managed to get an eviction. The success of both these cases was down to other residents reporting incidents as soon as they happen, so we encourage people to come forward to us to report nuisance and antisocial behaviour.
