I got a problem with a landlord of a property next door to mine and I would like some advise on how to handle the situation please.
His ASB tenants have been making life hell for the decent people in the street and the street backing on to his property. Shouting, fighting, motor bikes and drugs all hours of the night and day. I struggle to let my property and when I get a decent tenant they only stay for a couple of months and then have to move because of the ASB and noise. I have told the LL about the situation and his response was, I am getting the rent direct from the council and I cannot afford to do the house up if I evict them. After five years of complaining to the police and the council we finally got a CPN on the tenants about two months ago but they are up to their old tricks again.
My question has anyone successfully taken a landlord to court and won damages for loss of rent, the costs of setting up tenancies and council tax in voids because of the ASB of his tenants living next door?
The council and the police don’t seem to be able to do anything and the local MP has tried to help but I still have got nowhere. I have even tried selling the property at a knock down price but the sale fell through because the buyer seen the ASB next door which I had to declare of the PIF.
Its been a nightmare for nearly Five years. Some owner occupiers have sold their homes just to get away from the area.
Thanks in advance for your help
