Double eviction of nuisance tenants in Redditch - The Redditch Standard

Double eviction of nuisance tenants in Redditch

Redditch Editorial 8th Jul, 2024   0

TENANTS  are being warned that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated after two evictions were completed this month, thanks to partnership working.

In both cases, led by Redditch Borough Council’s Safer Neighbourhood’s Team, The Court Bailiff, assisted by local Police removed the nuisance tenants, both men, from each property.

The reports of anti-social behaviour included extensive damage to the property made by the tenants and their friends.

In one instance the property was being sub-let.

Redditch Borough Council’s portfolio-holder for housing Coun Bill Hartnett said: “These evictions prove that we will not tolerate anti-social behaviour in our properties especially when it has a negative impact on the quality of life of our communities and damages our much-needed homes.

“The Council, and ultimately the taxpayer, has to foot the bill to carry out the repairs and we will continue to take robust action to put an end to anti-social behaviour in our communities.”

Holes in the wall, broken fixtures and fittings and discarded waste and rubbish all add to the list of repairs.

PS David Roberts, of Redditch Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “The Safer Neighbourhood Team will continue working in partnership with the local council to ensure tenants who commit ASB are supported to change their behaviours.

“Where they do not work with us and the behaviour continues, we will seek to push for evictions as in these cases.”
