Anti Social behaviour

Defined as “…behaviour by a person which causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to persons not of the same household as the person.” examples can include:

  • excessive noise

Antisocial behaviour is generally defined as “…behaviour by a person which causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to persons not of the same household as the person.”

Common examples are excessive noise, graffiti, littering, vandalism or large groups outside a property causing alarm or distress. Whilst there may be a wide range of behaviours that could constitute anti-social behaviour, not all behaviours give landlords the same rights when it comes to evicting the tenants.  Legal advice should be sought on how the particular anti-social behaviour affects landlord’s rights.
