Can I name and shame all my tenants who fail to pay their rent, cause havoc on the estates and cause £1000's of damage to my employers property?

Yes, go ahead. You would be a stupid not to. You don't run any risk as I am sure your employers will protect you and on top of that they'll give you a promotion.  The more tenants you name and shame the higher your promotion.  You might end up Ceo is you name and shame all your tenants in one go right in the next post on this thread. Just think of the fat salary you will be getting and go ahead, mate!

Your Social Housing employer already has extensive powers and means available to discipline those tenants that behave in ways you have described. Perhaps they are not Draconian enough to ease the anger and frustration that you feel.

Your post is really a deflection from the topic of this thread, isn't it? A tenant raises the possibility of making serious criticisms about a housing association on a public forum. Your response is to deflect attention away from that issue and to try and focus it on the poor behaviour of a small minority of other tenants. It is a way of avoiding the topic that's been raised, with its focus on Housing Associations behaviour.

This is the kind of thing that failing Housing Associations and or workers do to avoid taking responsibility for problems that tenants raise with them.

    Just to point out about "one of society's most vulnerable" : Addiction is an illness. Now, some addicts do terrible things and cause havoc. If this is the case then eviction should follow, but only after a recommoendation that the said addict go into recovery. There is a big difference between an active addict and someone clean and sober and causing no trouble. The second is a vulnerable person deserving of support. The first is generally a neighbour from hell.

    If you belong to a motoring association they might be able to provide specialist legal advice. If your elderly mother lives with you then you might have additional rights under Equalities Act and/or human rights.

    Hi, first question last.  Park Hill Flats was one of the first of its type to be developed in England in the early 1960s.  The back to back terraced pre 1919 houses it replaced were highly unpopular.  The vision of Streets in the Sky had not been sullied by bad mangement, poor (in some cases) construction and thermal insulation, and anti-social behaviour.  As a result the flats were very popular when they first opened, and even up until the late 1980s many of the original tenants were still living there.  Later developments of similar flats in Sheffield failed to ...
