Taking positive action

Absolute Possession Ground - evictions
Following new legislation from the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, known as 'Absolute Possession Ground', the court must now grant housing association's possession if certain criminal activity has found to be committed within the locality of the perpetrator's home. This has given us more power to evict those who do not follow their tenancy at an earlier stage and provide an effective resolution to those affected by certain anti-social behaviour problems.
