Loitering in communal areas – is it antisocial behaviour?

If there is no criminal behaviour or disturbance going on, we wouldn’t usually consider this to be antisocial behaviour.

If your neighbour is causing problems, we recommend talking to them as soon as possible about anything they are doing that’s affecting you. This is often the best way to sort out any issues.

If the behaviour keeps happening, the situation worsens or you feel that you or someone else is at risk, please contact the police online or by calling 999.

Once you have a criminal reference number, please get in touch with our customer service centre by calling 0300 456 9996 to report the incident.
