Landlord responsibilities

If a tenant of a private rented property, or a visitor to the property, is engaging in antisocial behaviour, the landlord has a responsibility to take all reasonable steps to deal with the behaviour.

If a landlord fails to take these steps, we can issue an anti-social behaviour notice.

This requires the landlord to take steps to deal with the antisocial behaviour within a specific period of time.

If a landlord does not take the actions detailed in the notice, we can apply to the court for a rent penalty notice or a management control order against the landlord.
