Housing (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Section 14: Possession orders: conduct causing nuisance or annoyance

Section 14 amends Article 29 of the Housing (Northern Ireland) Order 1983 to ensure that, where a court is considering whether to make an order for possession of a secure tenancy on the grounds of conduct causing nuisance or annoyance, the court must take into account the effect that the nuisance or annoyance has had on persons other than the person against whom the order is sought and the likely effect that it would have on such persons if continued or repeated. Section 14 also requires the court to consider the likely impact of a possession order on the tenant and any person residing with the tenant.
