Anti-Social Behaviour Injunctions - ASBIs

We have a dedicated team experienced in offering legal help to those who may have been served with an ASBI and can offer advice and guidance to ensure you get the best outcome. Our experience suggests that once an ASBI is in place a landlord is more likely to issue possession proceedings so advice should be sought at the earliest opportunity. Call 0203 816 9282 for more information and let the expert solicitors at Stephensons help you.

Developed to help housing associations and councils deal with anti-social behaviour in social housing areas, an ASBI lawfully states that the person given an injunction is prohibited from engaging in certain activities or anti-social conduct in regards to social housing.

Our housing law experts have a specialist quality mark from the Legal Aid Agency for housing cases, this means that we will often be able to provide assistance to you free of charge if you qualify for help under the legal aid scheme and are based in the North West of England.

Served with ASBI

Similar to an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) An Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction or ASBI is usually related to housing.

If you have been given an ASBI and you feel that you did not deserve it or cannot stop your anti-social behaviour due to mental health issues, personal problems or addiction, our solicitors may be able help.

In some cases, a person may be accused of behaviour that they believe is false or incorrect, in this case they should seek immediate legal advice.

In some cases an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction will also include a Power of Arrest application as well as an exclusion order prohibiting the person that has been given the ASBI from entering a particular area. Breaches of exclusion area arrests are the most common types of issue regarding ASBI’s.

You will be in contempt of court if you breach an ASBI and you could face up to 2 years imprisonment if found guilty. If you have received an application for an Anti-Social Behaviour Injunction (ASBI) or a committal to prison application, it’s vital you have the best legal team on your side.

In addition you may have been served with an ASBI which you believe is particularly inconvenient or may be impossible to abide by. This may be because you have family or friends in the exclusion area or you may actually live there.
