I have a resident in one of my HMO properties who is causing a problem to other residents. He is a nice person when sober, but is very verbally abusive when he is drunk. He is a chronic alcoholic, so has long bouts of drinking, i.e. he may be sober for a month but then getting drunk each day for two months.
Normally, if someone’s drinking behaviour is affecting other residents, and cannot be controlled, then I would seek to move them elsewhere or evict them, however, in this case the person is 68 years old in poor health and has already exhausted other options (council, social services, supported housing, hostels, etc), and I believe that if I evict him he will resume rough sleeping and will be found dead this winter (if not before). I do not want to evict him and contribute to his death, but I do have other residents I need to protect.
Does anyone have any ideas for how to deal with this situation?
