Anti-Social Manchester Tenant Evicted
An anti-social tenant from Manchester who made life hell for her neighbours by holding loud parties and having visitors at all times of the day and night has been evicted by her landlord.
Natalie Dougherty was evicted from her home in Beckett Street, Gorton in Manchester by Adactus Housing Association at the end of September. The action follows more than six months of anti-social behaviour.
Mike Colvin, Tenancy Enforcement Officer for Adactus, said: “We have taken possession proceedings against Natalie Dougherty that have resulted in her losing her home because of the complete disregard she has shown for her neighbours. As well as holding loud parties and leaving the property insecure so that anyone could enter it, she has been abusive towards people in the street.”
Six neighbours complained to Adactus altogether. The eviction was taken out by Adactus’ tenancy enforcement team, who liaised with the neighbours to gain evidence for the eviction and then instructed solicitors to act on behalf of the association.
Mike added: “This really has been a nightmare for the neighbours, with the police being called out to the property a number of times and constant shouting and screaming night after night, with groups of mainly male visitors and all the attendant problems that this can cause on a quiet residential street.”
The property has now been repossessed and made secure.
Kate Sullivan, Tenancy Enforcement Manager, said: “Peace will hopefully now return to Beckett Street and the residents can get on with their lives.”
