How to report anti-social behaviour

We understand that some tenants may, in fact, be on the receiving end of anti-social behaviour.

If you are experiencing anti-social behaviour, there are a few things you can do to help.

What is antisocial behaviour?

Antisocial behaviour can come in variety of forms; from being inconsiderate, reckless, and abusive to committing crimes.

Some examples of antisocial behaviour are:

  • domestic abuse
  • physical violence
  • harassment
  • hate crime
  • verbal abuse or threatening behaviour
  • involvement with illegal drugs
  • excessive noise
  • animal nuisance
  • fly-tipping
  • graffiti
  • setting fires
  • illegal or immoral use of the property
  • other acts that may cause offence to neighbouring properties or the local community.

If you experience any of these things, please inform your Property Supervisor, and see the below details of who to contact.
