Leaseholder - Harassment and Nuisance

We take matters of harassment and nuisance seriously, so if you are suffering nuisance caused by a Council tenant or another Leaseholder, we advise you to contact us.

We want our Leaseholders and Tenants to be able to enjoy their homes without being harassed or annoyed by their neighbours.

Your lease will state that: "you or your visitors must not do or permit, or suffer to be done in or upon the premises anything, which may be or become a nuisance or annoyance, or cause damage or inconvenience to the Lessor or to the Owner of any other flat"

Examples of unacceptable nuisance and annoyance are;

  • Loud and frequent playing of music, radio or television
  • Noisy parties
  • Other loud noise such as frequent arguments
  • Harassment of neighbours
  • Uncontrolled animals
  • Blocking of shared areas in the building or estate

We take matters of harassment and nuisance seriously, so if you are suffering nuisance caused by another person, then we advise you to complete our online form below:

Housing Anti-Social Behaviour Report Form

It is often the case that a solution to the problem will be found by offering mediation between the person(s) making the complaint and the person(s) causing the nuisance. However, if no solution can be found and the nuisance continues, then we may ultimately apply to the Courts for forfeiture of the lease of the person causing the nuisance, or in the case of a tenant, eviction from their rented property.

Noise nuisance can also be reported to and dealt with by the Council's Environmental Health Department:
