Woman evicted after complaints about loud parties, arguments and noisy visitors
A WOMAN has been evicted from her Basingstoke home after neighbours complained about loud parties, arguments and noisy visitors.
The woman, in her 20s, was evicted after her landlord, Sovereign Housing Association, successfully sought a court order.
In a statement, the 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 house-warming party with around 35 guests.
Neighbours also complained about the couple having loud arguments, items being thrown about in the bedsit, and visitors running up and down the communal stairwell, day and night.
Sovereign said it offered the woman support to settle in, which she did not take up, and she continued to change her contact 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 refused to move out, the housing association launched possession proceedings, and the eviction was granted this year by Basing-stoke County Court.
Maryanne Yesil, housing officer at Sovereign, 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.”
