We can provide expert advice if you are suffering from the effects of antisocial or violent behaviour from neighbours.
Harassment can cause a great deal of distress to you and your family. It could even become so serious that you feel you have no choice but to leave your home. We can advise and assist you in obtaining an injunction for your protection and you may even be entitled to damages for any anxiety caused by the harassment as well as compensation for financial loss you suffer.
Harassment can also be committed by a landlord and can amount to a criminal offence. If your landlord is harassing you, we can advise you on your legal position and help you take appropriate action.
In the context of residential homes, the nuisance most commonly complained of is noise from loud music, parties, door banging, shouting, screaming and from building works. We can advise you as to what action you can take to live peacefully in your own home.
We have a wealth of experience in representing council tenants facing Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction proceedings (ASBIs) or possession proceedings commenced by local authorities due to allegations of anti-social behaviour. If any findings on anti-social behaviour are made against the tenant in an ASBI claim, the local authority will be able to rely upon them in a separate possession claim they may commence subsequently. There is a risk therefore that the tenant will be evicted.
You may be eligible for public funding to be represented in such proceedings and we can advise you on the funding options at the outset of your case.
