Problem Neighbour

Recommended Posts

Is moving just not an option? I lived in a housing association flat for nearly a year and it was awful. The guy next door often brought in stray cats full of fleas, which ended up infesting the entire building. No one cared, I moved out as soon as I saved up for the deposit and rent, never been happier.

 

When I was 18 and moving out the first time, in a different city, I had a decent council flat for around £41 a week in rent and no social issues. I wouldn't ever bother with them anymore though.

Unfortunately were not in the finical situation to able to move at present.  What an awful situation to have been left that's the issue no one seems to care always seem to be to busy passing the book to one department to the next and allowing situations to get out of control.

Too often in situations like this the solution is seen as the victim moving and the person causing the trouble left in place to then go on causing hardship for the next neighbour and nothing ever gets sorted out.

 

I know at least two victims of neighbour harassment in Sheffield where the only response from Sheffield Homes is "The tenant has a secure tenancy and there is little we can do. Have you thought about moving?"

 

That is an appalling way for a landlord to deal with antisocial behaviour, even more so given the council claims to have a zero tolerance to antisocial behaviour.

i agree with all thats been said,also you will have a patch officer that SCC SPENT THOUSANDS TO EMPLOY THEM,ask for a patch officer visit as they are employed to sort out these council tennant issues,also if a council tennant you pay a levy each week to your tennants association,find out who that person or people are that you pay although not a huge amount to help in these situations,and contact your mp as someone said,hope that helps
