Tenant’s fury after eviction notice is addressed to dead aunt
A social housing tenant who threatened her neighbour and assaulted a police officer faces eviction next month.
Tracey Slack's associates also wreaked havoc in her community by harassing neighbours with homophobic abuse and on one occasion threatening to slit somebody's throat.
Some of Slack's associates were convicted after two people were stabbed at the tenant's property, and were responsible for numerous other offences in the area such as theft from vehicles and shoplifting.
Sheffield Council and its ALMO Sheffield Homes took action to claim possession of the 46-year-old's home on Preston Street, Heeley on February 13.
She was duly ordered by Sheffield County Court leave the property by March 12 and to pay the council's costs of £4,127.
Slack promised the court that in the meantime neither she nor anyone associated with her would do anything which is illegal, immoral or would cause a danger, nuisance or annoyance either at the property or in the locality of the property.
“The behaviour of this tenant and her associates has caused a huge amount of anxiety and stress to her neighbours,” said Councillor Harry Harpham, Cabinet Member for Homes and Neighbourhoods.
“We will not tolerate criminal activity of any kind in and around our properties. In this case we took swift and decisive action which lead to this tenant losing her home.”
