Council obtain Civil Injunction against ex-partner of tenant

Posted on: 23 March 2017

The Council obtained a Civil Injunction at Exeter County Court on 16 March 2017. This action was taken in response to serious anti-social behaviour perpetrated by the ex-partner of a tenant.  The Injunction is in place for two years and will prevent the perpetrator from visiting a property in Tiverton.  It also contains conditions drafted to provide protection to victims, and has a power of arrest attached to it.

Councillor Ray Stanley, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “This action demonstrates the commitment of the Housing Service in dealing with anti-social behaviour. Civil Injunctions are one of the measures introduced by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 and are available for use by social landlords.  Our Housing Service will take firm action to keep victims and communities safe and this case provides yet more evidence that our Neighbourhood Teams are willing and able to address issues reported to them; and that they will work in partnership with other agencies to do so.  It also shows that they will support complainants and use legal remedies, where appropriate.  Due to the sensitive nature of this case, the Housing Service will not be releasing any more information regarding the matter”.
