  1. You will make sure that no-one (whether an adult or a child), either living in your home or visiting your home, does anything which is likely to cause nuisance to, or harass, annoy, distress or worry any person who either lives in or has lawful business in the Borough of Kirklees, for any reason.
  2. You will make sure that no-one (whether an adult or a child), either living in your home or visiting your home, does anything which is likely to harass anyone because of their colour, race, creed, religious belief, legal occupation, sex, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability or any other particular thing about them.
  3. You, and any other person living in or visiting your home, must not:
    • do or fail to do anything which causes, or is likely to cause, a nuisance or annoy residents, visitors or other people in the Borough of Kirklees;
    • harass anyone;
    • physically or verbally abuse anyone, including inflicting domestic violence or threatening violence against your partner, ex-partner or another member of your family. We will notify the Police and the Council's Domestic Violence Unit of any instances reported to us and we will consider action against the perpetrator in every case;
    • use your home for illegal or immoral purposes;
    • take, sell, supply or possess illegal substances; or
    • damage or interfere with any property that belongs to us.
  4. If you tell us you are the victim of anti-social behaviour, we will investigate your complaint and take whatever action we think is practical to sort out any problems. This may include taking legal action to evict tenants and their families who are behaving in an anti-social way. We may also take other legal action to prevent anti-social behaviour.
