A Council tenant who made neighbours’ lives a misery will be evicted from their property after Cannock Chase Council was granted a possession order.
The tenant will be evicted from the property in Greenheath Road , Hednesford, following a possession order granted by Walsall County Court on 12 March 2014.
The Court granted Cannock Chase Council possession because of the tenant’s continuous anti-social behaviour and for committing a burglary at a residential property in the area.
The Council has also taken possession proceedings against the tenant’s next-door neighbour, who was also a party to the burglary. In this case, the court granted the Council a suspended possession order which was obtained on 17 March 2014.
Cannock Chase Council’s Housing Estate Management Team worked closely with Staffordshire Police and other community safety partners to tackle the problem and achieve the right outcome.
Councillor Frank Allen , Cannock Chase Council Housing Portfolio Leader, said:
“It is important to state that the majority of our tenants cause no problems whatsoever. This is a warning, however, for a small minority of tenants that anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated. As this case proves, tenants who continue to cause anti-social behaviour can expect to be evicted by the Council.”
