Nuisance tenant is evicted

Have your say

LOUD music, shouting and swearing has cost a Sheffield council tenant his home.

Marshall Adlington, aged 22, of Smelterwood Road, Woodhouse, had lived at the property since August last year.

But an eviction hearing at Sheffield County Court heard Adlington and his guests often played loud music, shouted, swore and created a general noise nuisance.

Similar problems were caused by Adlington and his guests in and around the block of flats where he lived.

Sheffield Council and Sheffield Homes said they had received ‘persistent’ complaints.

Judge Robert Moore granted an immediate possession order backed up by an eviction warrant.

Adlington was also ordered to pay court costs of £500.

Coun Harry Harpham, Sheffield Council cabinet member for housing, said: “Adlington has proven that he cannot or will not agree to the tenancy conditions that spell out what we expect from tenants. We will not tolerate any kind of anti-social behaviour taking place in our properties and Adlington is now paying the highest price by losing his home.”
