A 22-year-old has been evicted by Sheffield Council for continuous antisocial behaviour.
Marshall Adlington played loud music, shouted, swore and created a general noise nuisance in the flat on Smelterwood Road, Woodhouse, where he had been a tenant since August 2011.
Similar problems were caused by Mr Adlington and his guests in and around the block of flats where he lived.
The case was heard at Sheffield County Court on 15 November after the council and its ALMO Sheffield Homes took possession proceedings against the tenant.
An immediate possession order was made by the court. The council applied for a warrant to enforce the order that was executed on 14 December when Mr Adlington was evicted from the property.
Cllr Harry Harpham, cabinet member for homes and regeneration, said: "Mr Adlington has proven that he cannot or will not agree to the tenancy conditions that spell out what tenants can expect from us and what we expect from them.
"We will not tolerate any kind of antisocial behaviour taking place in our properties and Mr Adlington is now paying the highest price by losing his home."
Mr Adlington was also ordered to pay the council's court costs of £500.
