Laws violent intimidating neighbors


If a person who owns their own home is grossly disruptive there is little that neighbours can do short of contacting Police or local councils about particular incidents.A person cannot be evicted from a home, which they own, for being disruptive.

This response is not tenure specific: it is available irrespective of status (anyone can notify the police of criminal activity or, indeed, lay a complaint themselves) and crimes are not generally defined in terms of the alleged perpetrator’s status as landowner, tenant or otherwise.

However, despite the existence of offences as broadly drawn as the public order offences (for example, disorderly behaviour),[12] traditional criminal law does not encompass the whole field of anti-social behaviour: excessive noise, for example, could be hard to pursue.

However, it contributes little to assist in defining or identifying the ‘offending’ activity.

In practice, the scope of ‘anti-social behaviour’ remains somewhat uncertain.

Much of the literature emanating from government departments in England has focused on what may be thought of as essentially criminal.[6] However, the ‘criminality’ may be more subjectively intuitive than technically sustainable.
