All tenants have the right to quiet enjoyment of their property.
Unfortunately, not all tenants allow this to happen, and there are procedures in place to deal with those who persistently break the terms of their tenancy agreement.
The following activities may be regarded as constituting nuisance:
This list is not intended to represent the only grounds for which action may be taken. The circumstances of each case reported will be considered carefully:
- Playing loud music, at any time of day, but particularly late at night;
- Use of foul language;
- Leaving disused vehicles in the grounds of the neighbourhood, and effecting major vehicle repairs on a regular basis;
- Unauthorised parking of any description;
- Leaving large pieces of abandoned furniture and other refuse in gardens, and about the neighbourhood generally;
- Allowing pets to foul gardens and common areas, with owners/ handlers failing to clean up afterwards;
- Other activity classified as anti-social behaviour.
In addition, tenants are not permitted to commit, or allow any of their household or visitors to commit, any form of harassment on the grounds of:
- Sexual orientation
Any of which may cause offence to other tenants, or members of their household or visitors. All forms of harassment are unacceptable. We take them very seriously and will investigate any reports thoroughly and take appropriate action where required. You will find helpful information about ASB in our leaflet
