Magna Take Tenant To Court
12:03am 23rd June 2013
A Dorset housing provider has taken matters into it's own hands to tackle Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB).
Magna Housing Association have taken a Beaminster Resident to court after hearing repeated complaints from his neighbours.
Offences included swearing, shouting and playing loud music till the early hours.
The man's been given an immediate injuction and could face arrest if he returns to the property.
He was given warnings, a service of notice, a demotion order and a notice seeking possession before the injuction was prepared.
Neighbours provided witness statements to the court.
Magna's ASB housing officer, Semeon Monehin attended the court hearing and spoke to the judge. He told Wessex FM that, 'We take all ASB cases very seriously and show concern for both the victim and perpetrator. Where possible we try and mediate situations and support the perpetrator from causing any further distress. However this is not always possible and we have to work closely with our residents to gather sufficient evidence to take court action and make a positive stance against such behaviour.'
