Antisocial behaviour and nuisance

Antisocial behaviour and nuisance

Anti-social behaviour is any unsatisfactory behaviour caused by the occupier of the house or any visitors to the house that is deemed an annoyance, nuisance or harassment to people who are not of the same household. This includes, but is not limited to, noise, violence, abuse, threats and the use of the property for any activity relating to illegal drugs.

Landlords should adopt robust procedures for dealing with anti-social behaviour relating to their property and undertake to deal with any complaints, which have been made directly to them, via the Local Authority or Lincolnshire Police.

Adequate referencing checks of prospective tenants will help reduce the likelihood of letting the property to someone who has a history of anti-social behaviour, although it is still recommended that clauses be put into the letting agreement so that tenants are aware their responsibilities and the process which will be followed if they fail to meet those responsibilities.

The council and police will always try to work with landlords in tackling persistent anti-social behaviour caused by their tenants, we therefore recommend that you contact either our ASB team or Lincolnshire Police if you have any concerns or need advice. If the matter relates only to a noise nuisance then take a look at noise pages.
