Council tenant evicted from property in Sandridge by St Albans District Council after anti-social behaviour
A council house tenant has been kicked out for anti-social behaviour including noise nuisance and intimidation.
St Albans District Council has evicted the resident from a property in Sandridge.
Legal action began in June 2011 due to breaches of the tenancy agreement but because of complications, the council only managed to get the resident out at the end of December.
Councillor Brian Ellis, portfolio holder for housing at the council, said: "The council does not take the decision to evict tenants lightly.
"However, where tenants are responsible for causing anti-social behaviour and are a nuisance to others, we work closely with the police to take action.
"The legal process means that it can take some time to achieve an eviction.
"Nevertheless, tackling anti-social behaviour is a top priority for us and we will not hesitate to pursue legal action where it is warranted."
