Tenant ordered to leave home after assaulting neighbour

By on 21/03/2011 in News

A Birmingham City Council tenant was ordered by Birmingham County Court to give up her home, after being found guilty of assaulting her Stechford neighbour on Thursday 17 March.

Annette Redmond (48) will need to leave her Wychbold Crescent home by 12 May 2011 and is also prohibited from certain conduct whilst she remains at the property.

Redmond also undertook not to cause a nuisance to local residents for six months, and if this is breached the city council can return to court to seek stronger sanctions.

In January last year (2010), Redmond assaulted her next door neighbour and following this her two sons, Jason and Devon Thomas along with a friend forced entry into the neighbour's property, assaulted her, ransacked her home causing damage and stole money to the value of £65.

Redmond and her son Devon Thomas have been through the criminal courts and sentenced on charges of common assault and burglary. Jason Thomas is still wanted by the police.

This criminal activity was a breach of Redmond's condition of tenancy, and therefore Birmingham City Council applied to the county court for possession of the property in Wychbold Crescent.

Cllr John Lines, Cabinet Member for Housing, said: “We are here to protect our tenants and residents from anti-social behaviour and I’m pleased by the court's decision, which is the result of my housing officers' swift action and hard work.”
