Woman evicted from South Ham bedsit

Basingstoke Gazette: Sovereign housing officer Maryanne Yesil and PC Chris Brindley Sovereign housing officer Maryanne Yesil and PC Chris Brindley

A WOMAN has been evicted from her home after neighbours reported loud parties, arguments and noisy visitors.

The woman, in her 20s, was evicted on Mach 27 this year after her landlord Sovereign Housing Association successfully sought a court order.

The housing association said the woman and her partner moved into the top-floor bedsit in Stag Hill, South Ham, in April last year.

The first complaints about noise came shortly afterwards, when the couple hosted a housewarming party attended by around 35 people.

Neighbours also complained about her and her partner having loud arguments, items being thrown in the flat and visitors running up and down the stairs, day and night.

In a statement, Sovereign said it offered the woman support to settle in, which she did not take up, and continued to change her number and ignore letters.

She was served with a tenancy caution, to which she agreed, but she broke the terms of it in October last year, and was served notice on her tenancy.

When she failed to move out, the housing association launched possession proceedings, and eviction was granted this year by Basingstoke County Court.

Housing officer Maryanne Yesil said: “If a resident isn’t willing to work with us, we have to take action to protect their neighbours and ensure they can continue living peacefully.”

Whatever next says...

Poor neighbours, much sympathy for them. Sorry but the Associations need to act much quicker than they do. I am currently experiencing similar with a new Sovereign Kingfisher Tenant and just to get a response to my emails or telephone calls would be a start, let alone taking any action on the problem. Why should these awful people be able to blight the lives of normal, hardworking, tax and rent paying individuals. I'm pretty sure if I didn't pay my rent or service charge - they would soon be on the phone to me!
