Anti-social behaviour seems to be an unfortunate by-product of living in close proximity to other people. Most of your neighbours will be considerate towards your rights, but some may either be unaware that they are causing a problem or deliberately anti-social.
It is important to remember that OBMS Ltd have very little legal power when dealing with anti-social behaviour. Complaints about unacceptable behaviour must come directly from you, the tenant, if the council or police is to take action. We cannot be involved as a third party.
Examples of anti-social behaviour can include:
- Harassment and intimidation
- Verbal abuse and threatening behaviour
- Criminal damage
- Dog fouling
- Fly tipping, littering or storage of rubbish in gardens
- Noise nuisance
- Racist/homophobic abuse
- Under age drinking or smoking
- Vehicle nuisance, including abandoned vehicles
- Violence/threat of violence and/or assault

It is important to keep a log/diary of any incidents of anti-social behaviour including times, dates, the nature of the incidence and, if known, the identity of the offender.
