Croydon Council to evict nuisance tenant who swept dog mess on neighbour's balcony in Kenley
A nuisance tenant who intimidated neighbours and subjected them to a torrent of abuse is being evicted from his flat.
Kevin Williams of Croftleigh Avenue, Kenley, breached his anti-social behaviour order by being a persistent nuisance to residents and often playing loud music.
The 40-year-old's two dogs, Buller and Trigger, would bark incessantly and were allowed to urinate on the balcony, which Williams was accused of then sweeping over on to his neighbour's balcony below.
Croydon Council secured a possession order at Croydon Crown Court and two residents gave evidence at the hearing to make the case against Williams.
In September 2011, following a series of complaints, Williams received an open-ended asbo which he breached twice, prompting the repossession.
He was given 28 days to leave the flat.
Councillor Dudley Mead, cabinet member for housing, said: “Residents should not have to tolerate antisocial behaviour and it is thanks to those who had the bravery to come forward and testify that we have been able to secure this eviction.
“The behaviour and abuse they endured was completely unacceptable and the council will not hesitate to take action against people like Mr Williams.”
