The Government has put in place a number of sanctions for dealing with anti-social behaviour.

The ability of private landlords of long leaseholders to deal with anti-social behaviour is limited by the terms of leases and restrictions on forfeiture.

There is however a range of other nontenure specific remedies available for different types of anti-social behaviour which may be more effective.
