What if the problems are coming from outside my home?
- What if the problems are coming from outside my home?
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.
