New Vision Homes is committed to tackling all forms of anti-social behaviour by its tenants, members of tenants’ families and/or visitors to tenants’ homes. New Vision Homes takes reports of anti-social behaviour seriously and wants its tenants to live in a safe community.
Anti-social behaviour is defined in law as conduct that has caused, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to any person. To be classified as anti-social behaviour, the behaviour must be persistent. It is also important to establish whether the behaviour is deliberate or unintentional.
There may be a fine line between antisocial behaviour and disputes between neighbours over relatively minor inconveniences, although these may, if persistent, become anti-social behaviour. Anti-social behaviour can include:
- shouting, swearing and fighting
- intimidation of neighbours and others through threats or actual violence
- harassment, including racial harassment
- verbal abuse
- abusive behaviour aimed at causing distress or fear to certain people, for example, elderly or disabled people
- animal nuisance, including dog fouling
- vandalism, property damage and graffiti.
New Vision Homes will investigate allegations of anti-social behaviour and aspire to find a community resolution through working with partner agencies. We take complaints of anti-social behaviour seriously and in strict confidence.
What happens next
Your report of anti-social behaviour will be investigated and if the behaviour is persistent New Vision Homes will firstly try to come to a community resolution. If a community resolution is not found and the behaviour continues or gets worse we will work with partner agencies and may seek legal action.
