Antisocial Behaviour and Housing 2015

Written in 2015.

Antisocial behaviour is a common problem and a cause of concern for people across all tenure types.

This resource focuses in particular on social landlords and tenants and will examine legal responsibilities of both social landlords and tenants, legislative procedural requirements which must be followed when dealing with cases of antisocial behaviour and the most recent case law in relation to antisocial behaviour. It also looks at potential upcoming changes to the law surrounding antisocial behaviour.

In particular this resource considers;

  • obligations of the tenant and social landlord prior to taking action
  • procedures for tackling antisocial behaviour
  • pre and post court options for tenant and landlords
  • re-housing options
  • mitigating circumstances and alternative remedies
  • relevant case law on antisocial behaviour and how this should shape both social landlord’s approach and tenant’s behaviour
  • potential upcoming changes to the law surrounding antisocial behaviour
