Liverpool Mutual Homes (LMH) has participated in a court case against a tenant living at a house in the Walton area following a physical assault on a member of staff.
The tenant was convicted of assault at a recent court hearing. She has now been fined for her behaviour with responsibility to pay all court costs.
This legal action was linked to a serious and unprovoked incident that took place in the tenant’s home in January whilst the LMH staff member was carrying out their daily duties.
LMH always takes appropriate actions to protect its staff from potential harm. In this case, a two-year court injunction was immediately obtained to address the tenant’s behaviour towards LMH staff and contractors who visit the property.
Following the conclusion of the court case, the Housing Team and Safer Estates Officer will continue to monitor her behaviour and would seek to evict the tenant if there is a second serious incident.
LMH Executive Director of Operations Angela Forshaw said, “The behaviour and action of the tenant was totally unwarranted and unprovoked against a member of staff who was simply conducting their daily duties.”
She added, “LMH will not tolerate abusive behaviour against its staff and will always pursue both legal and criminal prosecution via Merseyside Police against those who assault our staff. Such cases could also lead to the perpetrators losing their tenancy.”
