Woman evicted after blaming poltergeist for party noises
An Ipswich social housing tenant has been evicted after a campaign of harassment and noise.
Karl Tyrell was forced to leave his property in Wherstead Road after Ipswich County Court granted Suffolk Housing an outright possession order on the grounds of nuisance.
The housing association received a string of complaints from neighbours about the 63-year-old's anti-social behaviour.
“As a responsible landlord, we have a duty of care towards our tenants and will take action wherever necessary to help safeguard their quality of life,” said Ian Winslet, Suffolk Housing's chief executive.
“It is always unfortunate when we are forced to remove tenants from our properties. However, this sort of anti-social behaviour can make life intolerable for other people. As such, we are not afraid to take hard-line action when all other methods of resolving the situation have failed.
“Making sure our tenants can enjoy their homes without being subjected to harassment or disturbance from their neighbours is one of our key priorities. We will always investigate complaints fully and take action wherever necessary.”
