Housing association evicts "nightmare" tenant
1:20pm Tuesday 10th July 2012 in Hereford City
A “Nightmare neighbour” has been evicted from a Hereford flat after neighbours complained of dog mess, urine, vomit and sexual activity in a shared stairwell.
Marches Housing Association has obtained possession of the flat from a court judge and legally evicted a tenant after a year of problems.
The housing association says it sought legal action after the tenant’s neighbours were subjected to loud parities, disturbances and intimidating groups of people congregating at the property.
Now, a month after a judge granted Marches possession of the flat and the problem tenant was ordered to leave, Marches housing officer Caroline Light has thanked residents for their help.
She said: “They were fearful of reprisals for providing evidence but without it we wouldn’t have been able to win the case and we are sorry it took so long to obtain this outcome.”
