Changes to Anti-Social Behaviour Legislation

Changes to Anti-Social Behaviour Legislation

Making a difference to landlords, a new piece of legislation is set to be introduced to assist landlords who have previously had difficulties evicting tenants on the grounds of anti-social behaviour.

 

The Anti-social Behaviour Crime and Policing Bill 2013-2014 is approaching its final reading whereby landlords will be able to evict tenants on the grounds of anti-social behaviour, even if the offence hasn’t been committed near the property, and what’s more the courts will have to grant possession. 

 

David Nicholson, Director of Martin & Co Crawley said “It has been reported that last year saw over 2.3 million incidents of anti-social behaviour were recorded, whilst we are very lucky to not experience many cases of anti-social behaviour new legislation like this allows for us to have greater power to protect our landlords”.

 

If you are a landlord who is concerned about anti-social behaviour or any other aspect of letting please contact the office on 01293 735000 and one of our fully trained members of staff would be happy to assist.
