We are a small close of residential tenants where elderly and disabled people live. Approximately three months ago a flat in the close was let to a single female.
She moved in almost immediately with a person we suspect is her brother. Since they have moved in they have called rude and obscene comments at other residents, dropped their underwear to show their behinds, ordered pizzas for other neighbours without authority, thrown bottles of water at elderly severely disabled residents above them, in the past week we have had the owners of the properties called out three times during the night to check on them, on which occasion they have abused those that have called, the Police have been in regular attendance and two nights ago a child was taken away by ambulance, but returned early morning.
The parent of one of those involved is as abusive as their offspring. We have had the Housing Association call to make investigations and they say that it is a complicated case as Social Services are involved and they cannot do anything as there has been a change in law, we have been told that there has been a change in the tenancy of which none of us have been notified.
We are met with arrogance from the Housing Association, our MP fails to respond. The elderly people are in a state of great stress and anxiety as their tenancy states for over 55s only, and these who move in and out are all under 20. What can we do next with no co-operation from anyone?
