Islington Council has evicted a tenant of Kerridge Court because of anti-social behaviour caused by the tenant and their family.
The tenant originally came to the attention of the Council after a series of reports were made to both the Police and the Area Housing ASB Team. These reports related to the use of drugs and general anti-social behaviour caused by the tenant and their family and visitors to the property.
A suspended possesssion order was granted by the court in 2014 with specific focus on the tenant to change their behaviour to ensure they retained their tenancy. Despite this order, there was no change in behaviour of the tenant or the family resulting in Islington Council returning to court for a hearing for breach of the original order.
The judge agreed that the anti-social behaviour was in breach of the tenancy agreement and awarded an outright possession order, leading to eviction in December 2015.
Whilst eviction is a last resort Islington Council will pursue this action where the anti-social behaviour is severe and ongoing, to protect residents of our estates.
