Anti-social behaviour

Under your leasehold agreement, you are responsible for making sure that you, people living in your home, visitors and pets do not cause:

  • a nuisance to neighbours, or
  • any kind of harassment that interferes with their peace and comfort or which
    offends them.

Problems of this kind are called anti-social behaviour.

We are committed to dealing with all aspects of anti-social behaviour so that we can improve the quality of life for our customers and create safer environments for everyone to live in. We aim to work with residents and other organisations to make sure that the right action is taken at the right time.

Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of actions, from minor disputes between neighbours to severe nuisance, harassment and domestic violence. Examples include:

  • illegal and immoral behaviour – alcohol related, drug dealing and misuse, prostitution, kerb crawling, sexual harassment
  • nuisance graffiti, litter, noise nuisance, messy gardens, car problems
  • violence or harassment – assault, domestic violence or abuse, harassment on
    grounds of race, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability
  • youth nuisance – abuse, gangs, noise, criminal damage.
