Tenants watch out! Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014

Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014

Recently Canterbury Community Partnership explained the gist of this new October 2014Act.

Controversial new police and community powers were Introduced amidst gasps following the revelation that this might finally enable the curbing of antisocial behaviour, importantly, including antisocial tenants.  Most tenants would welcome this since they too are victims of antisocial behaviour from their unlawful minority.

For years landlords have complained that they are unable to evict tenants or do anything to prevent their tenants antisocial antics - not anymore - now there are "triggers" to set in motion significant deterants and remedies to such egregious activity.  Police working with "community partners" are encouraged to report local issues enabling a picture to emerge leading to effective control.  The question remains whether they will be effective, compared to use of Section 21 Nocices to Quit.  And, whether S.21 notices will even exist, following the ilikely introduction of the Deregualtion Bill.  More news  after the end of March 2015 following parliamnetary decision.
