How should we deal with neighbours from hell?
The government wants to speed up the time it takes to evict tenants engaging in serious anti-social behaviour. Will the proposed changes make it easier to deal with "neighbours from hell"?
Ministers say it can take more than a year to remove anti-social neighbours. Those found guilty of a housing-related offence in England could be liable for automatic eviction in future.
But one housing charity said the idea was a "blunt tool" and the courts were already dealing with the problem.
Will the proposed changes make it easier to deal with "neighbours from hell"? Should local authorities be able fast-track the eviction of anti-social tenants? Is this problem already being addressed by the justice system? Do you have experience of this?
