Legal update “Out of Control” as reported in 2014

On the 31st October 2013, a 3 year Suspended Possession Order was granted against a mother of 3 on Fenside Road, due to her and her household members’ behaviour and activity in and around the property.

The Order was suspended on the terms that she complies with her Tenancy Agreement - that she will not use the property or allow it to be used for any illegal or immoral purposes, not to permit a certain male to reside or visit her property and prevent persons known to be responsible for acts of anti-social behaviour from occupying or visiting the property.

The tenant breached the terms of the Suspended Possession Order and was evicted on 22nd March 2016 from their home by Court Bailiffs.

Anti-Social Behaviour

Everyone is entitled to live in peace within their neighbourhood and it’s important that you report anti-social behaviour to us, whether you’re a victim or a witness. It’s important to know what is classed as nuisance and why, so we’ve listed some common issues reported to Boston Mayflower and advice to help resolve them:

• CCTV cameras must not point at neighbours’ land. This could breach privacy laws and lead to allegations of harassment.

• If your neighbour’s hedges or trees are overhanging, get their permission before putting the trimmings on their property, otherwise it could be considered fly tipping.

• Smoke can be considered a nuisance so please be mindful - it doesn’t matter

To report an incident of anti-social behaviour or to request our leaflet, “How Boston Mayflower can work with you to help combat Anti-Social Behaviour” please call Boston Mayflower on 0300 365 5000.

if it’s from a wood burner in the house, a chiminea in the garden, or a barbecue.

• Place trampolines away from borders so noise isn’t too disturbing and children (and adults!) can’t use them to see into neighbours’ gardens as this affects their right to privacy.

• Make sure security lighting does not shine directly into other homes.
