Neighbour problems

To report serious issues with neighbours:

This includes antisocial behaviour (behaviour which is causing you alarm or distress).

This applies to council tenants, private tenants and owner occupiers.

Landlord responsibilities

If a tenant or visitor is engaging in antisocial behaviour at a private rented property, 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 reasonable steps to deal with the antisocial behaviour within a specific period.

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.
