Examples of behaviour which would not be considered as anti-social include:
- Low-level disagreements between neighbours where there is no breach of tenancy
- ‘One-off’ issues unless they are of a particularly serious nature
- Parking concerns such as parking on the pavement and badly parked vehicles
- Groups of people in the street or in parks, unless they are being abusive, causing damage, or committing other crimes
- A one-off party.
Although excessive noise late at night may be considered as anti-social behaviour, general living noise is not. Examples of living noise include:
- Opening and closing doors
- Flushing toilets
- Walking across the floor
- Babies crying and children playing
- Noise from washing machines / dryers
- DIY noise that is taking place at reasonable times of the day
- Personal lifestyle differences between households.
Breach of Tenancy cases are often mistaken as anti-social behaviour. These pages provide detailed examples and variations of Persistent Anti-Social Behaviour, Serious Anti-Social Behaviour and Breach of Tenancy.
