Nuisance and Anti-social Behaviour

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is any behaviour that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons, not of the same household. Examples include but are not limited to noise, violence, abuse, threats and use of the property for illegal drugs. Adequate checks before letting should minimise the risk of letting to someone likely to behave anti-socially. The tenancy agreement should include appropriate clauses about anti-social behaviour. Some local authorities have a licence condition for premises that require a licence under the Housing Act 2004, stating that landlords must take reasonable action to prevent and, where necessary, remedy anti-social behaviour.
