I have a block of 14 apartments and I let out some of the apartments on 6 month AST when the tenants moved in everything was ok until they became friendly with each other which lead on to all night party’s with very loud music, drugs and fighting which has resulted in other guest leaving the property we have got the council to get an abatement notice for the music and I went to court to get a abridge possession notice (section 8) on grounds 14 anti – social behaviour. The judge was not satisfied that we were in any danger from the tenant so denied the abridgement but gave me an injunction order which I need to get served by a process server I had the police to assist me when I served the notice on them within 10 minutes the police were back to arrest the tenant for using threats to kill my brother and for throwing cans and stones at his van while he was driving away. He was high on drugs when I served the notice on him. He was brought before a court and fine £235 and returned to the address yesterday. We did employ a security firm to stop all the party’s which did work only we do not have the recourses to keep employing them now its only a matter of time before he has his next fix and it all kicks off again. There are about 5 tenants involved what can we do all of this happend
all of this happened on Saturday and I issued the notice to see if it would calm things down so I don’t think the notice for the injuction was served correctly and I need to find a process server. How much power do we have with the injunction and how do we enforce it.
Hello - my name is Leanne and it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
The tenant had the injunction personally served, is that right?
And it has a power of arrest?
yes i served the injunction myself and i got a process server comming today to serve it again just in case i served it incorrectly and it dosent have the power of arrest.
So can you clarify what counts as a breach? Is it simply that as soon as they are arrested for any reason it is counted as a breach?After they were served the notice on Saturday, they were arrested within the hour for threatening behaviour towards myself and my brother. I assume a backlash of serving the paper. He was held over the weekend untill he could appear in court on Monday and he was then released. Does this count and should we now be making an application to the court to commit?
what forms do i need to fill in for the court
