What if the problems are coming from outside my home?

Question:
What if the problems are coming from outside my home?
Answer:

If someone near you is causing problems, get advice before taking any action. Councils and Housing Associations can stop their tenants using anti-social behaviour. If the perpetrator is in private rented accommodation, the landlord can take action to evict them.

You can stop an ex-partner from harassing you with the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. This gives the court power to impose restraining orders like the Occupation and Non-molestation Orders.

If you have suffered from violence, you can contact the Police. Ask for the community safety officer.
