What is antisocial behaviour?

Antisocial behaviour is ‘behaviour which has caused or is likely to cause you harassment, alarm or distress’ and may include:

  • noise nuisance
  • neighbour disputes
  • verbal abuse
  • threatening behaviour
  • harassment and intimidation

If you are being disturbed by loud music and noises, you can report it to environmental services.

Activities that take place during unsociable hours, such as vacuuming at 2am, is also classed as anti-social behaviour.

Noise or behaviour that is part of everyday life is not considered antisocial behaviour.

You can find more information on anti-social behaviour, on page 18 your conditions of tenancy.
