Your Rights Under the Protection From Harassment Act 1997

By: Jeff Durham - Updated: 15 Jun 2018 | comments*Discuss
 
Protection From Harassment Act Criminal

Harassment can cause alarm, fear and distress. Many people who are the victims of any kind of harassment can end up becoming ill, both mentally and physically, as a result. It will almost certainly lead to increased stress which can have a major impact in raising blood pressure.

Harassment can also lead to insomnia, anxiety and depression, poor concentration and can dramatically affect your self-confidence and self-respect. People who are being harassed may take excessive intakes of alcohol or drugs to try to alleviate the problem which will, ultimately, only make matters worse. The Protection From Harassment Act 1997 offers you Protection From this Unwanted Behaviour.

The Protection From Harassment Act 1997

Under this Act it becomes a criminal offence if you:

  • Cause alarm, harassment or distress more than once as a result of an action you conduct against another person. The conduct might be verbal or non-verbal and it doesn’t have to be the same type of action on each occasion – if the person feels alarmed, harassed or distressed by your actions, then it is deemed harassment, even if that was not your intention.
  • Take any kind of action against another person which causes a fear of violence. This must happen on at least two occasions. The alleged offender must be aware, or ought to be aware, that their actions are likely to induce a fear of violence in the other person.

Civil Injunctions

The Protection From Harassment Act 1997 also permits you to take out a civil injunction against the alleged offender, as a right to protection and possible compensation in cases where a criminal prosecution isn’t appropriate or there is insufficient evidence to pursue a criminal case. This can be very useful as it’s often a civil injunction being put in place which will prevent the alleged offender from persisting with the behaviour.

Police Assistance

If you feel you are at immediate risk of violence as a result of harassment, then you should Call The Police. Under The Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001, the police can force the alleged offender to leave the vicinity of your home or the location where you might be at the time, and they have the powers of arrest if the alleged offender fails to comply with this order.

Dealing With Stalkers

Harassment isn’t always about people wanting to cause harm to another. Sometimes, it’s completely the opposite. People who might have a strong admiration and perceived ‘love’ for another person can end up becoming so obsessed that they might end up stalking you. This doesn’t necessarily mean just following you around or calling you on the phone, but would include situations where they are writing to you persistently and/or sending you unwanted gifts. And, should this be the case, then they are also guilty of causing harassment for which they can ultimately be prosecuted.

Therefore, whether it’s the intention of the alleged offender to cause harm by their harassment or not, or even if they’re unaware they might be causing alarm or distress, it is still an offence under the Act.

Iam so glad I came across this website at least I now know others have/are suffering as I am. I have been under an onslaught of harassment from new neighbours for almost 2 years. It has included racial abuse to visitors (police were called) threatening a housing officer that came to my home with violence, telling me they will make my life hell, throwing cement over my cars, now they keep making complaints tohighways department of a council to whom I do not pay my rates and who have no jurisdiction over the service road I live on, but who own the road fronting the service road and who keep coming out to my house and on to my property. They have no jurisdiction of the road or my home as the road is a service road and not a classfied or non classified road and I have just found comes under Highways at a different council. I have informed the council harassing me that they have no jurisdiction , I have evenn shown them emailed them letters from their own Planning Department stating they have no jurisdiction, and an SIMR from land registry, but highways will not accept it, They have now accused me of painting white lines myself outside my house.To make it worse when this council come out and stand in front of the neighours house who are making the complaints, taking photos of the pavement and white lines in front of my house. I have now put my house up for sale. Thing is the system is weighted against the victim because if you take enforcement action against the neighbours it needs declaring, I believe, when one sells. I took legal advice today and found that if I have proofs and have sent proofs to this council that show they have no jurisdictiom, then essentially I have case for harassment, maybe even criminal harassment as I have started to have panic attacks, I was in my dressing gown when last highways operative came to my door, I was in tears struggling to breath but still he persisted. My legal advice suggests I may even have a case for trespass against the council as they have no jurisdiction at the site or on my property. I would like to bring this myself but not sure how and if I have to use County Court or Small Claims I have written and told them I am feeling suicidal and having panic attacks, I have had 7 visits in 5 days. I have even written to the CEO and still it persists.I have now applied for written confirmation from the Highways department that my house and road actually come under for written confirmation that my home and the service road does come under their Council and to confirm that planning does not apply for anything, not even a dropped kerb as it is a non registered site/service road. Thing is the neighbours family owns a yard at the council waste site and I am sure they are using their contacts in their vendetta against me.... Thanks for reading and for giving me the space to get this off my chest.

I have been living in my flat fornearly 11yrs. I have two sons one if whomis nearly 18 and no longer lives with me because of his behaviour.My younger son is 13 totally different from his brother and has some mild learning needs. He plays out with a group of other children. There has been problems with the kids going out on the garage roofs and I have acknowledged when my child has been guilty of doing this. My son has been accusedof being verbally abusive but from what ive witnessed these people havehad fivewhite children saying disgusting things but did not bother to find out their names and report them. When I spoke to one of the tenants she said she had reported all the children. A lot of things have been said about my childand photos took of only my child two white children threw paint around the garages and I was told by the housing that it was my child when two people told me the names of the children who threw the paint ....nothing to do with my son. The housing officer said letters were sent to all parents I said the best thing to do is have a meeting with all parents concerned. She said no it has to be individual meetings as we all might be friends. The real reason she did not want a meeting with all parents because no letters were sent to anyone else. All the other children said their parents received no letters. But I received a letter and my neighbour. I am black and my son is mixed race. My other neighbour isblack and so is her son. It seems strange that non of the white parents have had letters and none of the white children's names were givenand the housing are supporting this threatening us with social services and the police yet all the kids have been doing the same thing. I have suffered on and off with depression and this is making me I'll why target just the black mom's and their child's and for a housing to be supporting them and not even enquiringabout those kids seems to be very one sided.plus to even sit and lie knowing they had not sent letters to anyone else.

There's a non molestation order gains my ex. He is not allowed within 100m of my house. He was seen in April going back and forth into my back yard and a neighbour spoke to him. At the time I was away for a few days and he'd have known. She can't remember the date but she knows she saw him at my property in 2018.the order was enforced in 2017. I've tried to tell the police about a previous breach when he walked past my house at night with the Children at night but because they are young, they can't be interviewed. I know I'm being followed and stalked but I can't prove it. Any advice is appreciated

Loopylou - Your Question:
My ex and I have an 8yr old son. There is very little communication (email only) between us. We have a court order in place for contact. 4 years ago He spat in my face and after 2 years of him shouting at me in public when he spat in my face I finally had him arrested. He works for a police force so knows the law inside out and used his knowledge to intimidate me. Since that incident he has filmed me and every handover since. My son has seen all the footage and a folder with hundreds of photos of me at his address. I made another complaint but the police say they advise him to film every handover in case I make any further allegations. He recently came to my home trying to collect our son on a non contact day and shone a light into my Windows and filmed inside my house. Police have said it is "reasonable and justifiable" why he did it as he believed he was due to have our son and he was checking to see we were in and to also prove to our son he tried to collect him. He could do it anytime he liked so ling as he believed he was due to have our son! I live in fear in my own home. He even hides in the bush at the end of my garden filming when he drops our son off in the evenings. My son thinks it's a game. Has anyone ever managed to get a non molestation order/injunction to stop someone filming? Surely this is harrassment if it's not criminal. We are back in court in 3 weeks for a new child arrangements order (3rd one) and hopefully this one will be in black and white so it can't be interpreted or manipulated easily.

Our Response:
Many fathers do film contact handovers as it ensures a record can be kept and noone can make false allegations. Handovers can be fraught times especially if one partner cannot accept that a child has rights to equal contact with both parents. If your ex partner is turning up at other times than those when contact was due to take place, you could report it as stalking. Hopefully the new child arrangements order will make things easier.

I have lived in this street for over 17 years and the neighbours are an absolute nightmare. Since my husband left the couple upstairs have harrassed me and destroyed my property on a regular basis. They get a kick out of seeing me upset. Whe I confront them with proof of what they've done they pretend by being overly friendly and helpful saying they don't want any animosity then proceed to do things to destroy my paintwork, have taken a hammer to my pebbledash cracking the cement, scraped my newly painted door, flooded my kitchen/bathroom, cut the washing lines. They apparently did this to the neighbours before me - they also use my garden as if it belongs to them and are aggressive whenever I use my garden. They are in their mid 60's and the other neighbours see what they are doing but no-one will say anything - which is the bullying culture, that's why they get away with it and I believe the ones who do nothing are every bit as insidious as the perpetrators. I am exhausted with the constant harrassment and the police have told me not to retaliate but its getting difficult not to. Their advice is not to allow them to get to me - which is easier said than done when you have people causing you anxiety. Im hoping someone can advise me on what I can do about these horrible, nasty people - they dont have a life and get their kicks out of upsetting people. Id be grateful for any help - the police and the council have done nothing.

My neighbour has been wearing me down for the last two years. It seems mad to list some of the little things like deliberately making noise when returning home in middle of night, running up and down stairs noisily, slamming doors when leaving for work, crashing around in kitchen, venting boiler fumes and bbqs over the fence. Nit slept properly in 2 years and this weekend i finally cracked, got angry and all the behaviour has stopped. Now i realise she has been deliberately winding me up to destroy me.

worried mother - Your Question:
My daughter is being seriously harassed by her ex boyfriend with very vile comments and accusations, which are not true. She is 19 and he is 23. She has different plataforms. He is sending horrid messages with the intention to destroy her. He is also harrassing her lovely boyfriend with horrid threats. As he is a rugby player, the troubled ex is threatening to destroy his legs, so he can never play again. He is also commenting about me and my husband. My daughter has bloked him. However the damage is done. She is very upset and scared about what he will do next. Both boys live at walking distance and he knows where she works and live.Can we do anything?

Our Response:
Talk to the police first of all (local community policing team, not the emergency number). Make sure it's recorded. The police will also be able to give your daughter some advice on how to keep herself and her new boyfriend safe.

Di - Your Question:
My daughter is divorced and lives with her 11 yr old mixed race child. They both suffer from chronic health problems. The couple upstairs who have a 4yr old are drug users. They bang and jump on the floor, shout abuse through the ceiling. The man stands on the balcony which is over my daughter's patio door, watching when they come and go. Even when the door is closed he can hear what they say and makes sarcastic comments. The pair make racial comments too. It is making her daughter depressed. They can't sleep, hardly talk in their own home and try to stay away as much as possible because it is making them I'll. My daughter keeps a diary and has a noise app from the council but hasnt been able to record them because it only records 30 sec at a time and it is impossible to get the timing right to fit in with that short time. It is awful knowing that you can't lead a normal life in your own home without this man watching and listening for every move. Even if my daughter puts a kettle on or runs a bath they start banging on the floor and laughing like maniacs.

Our Response:
Has she tried making a complaint to the landlord? If the noise app is not sufficient for the purpose, she should go back to Environmental Heath. They may consider installing a noise monitor.

I bought my home 12 years ago with a morgage and for the first year it was lovely. There was lovely neighbours on either side and it was a home. 11 years ago one of the neighbours moved out and my whole world was turned upside down. The new family were so loud and there was 5 adults 2 vulnerable adults who can be heard 3 streets away and many children/grandchildren. Tvs are left playing loudly sometimes all night dog barks an hour or two each day doors slammed every few seconds. The whole family are so loud shout and swear badly in every sentence. For many years I have complained to landlord who does not care, letting agent who does not care local authority who try to make out its me who is the problem, local mp town councilors citezens advise and solicitors. I am now at a total loss what to do about mine and my 6 year olds living situation. I will move I have tried selling but no one local will come near and I am unable to reduce it by more than 20k. I tried putting it up to let and there is much demand for properties to let in my area the house although small has been gutted inside is in excellent condition and is on a.much liked street. I have had several people view it daily all love it and a few days later dont hear from them again. I had a nervous breakdown last November putting me and my then 5 year old at risk. I have regular gp mental health and now social worker appointments. Following the incident We was placed on child protection order which I understand but cant quite believe and I am devastated. The noise is relentless daily most evenings into the early hours. Each son and daughter who visits have several children whom are there first thing until late at night all shouting swearing screaming running round on laminate and banging slamming doors. I have visited some of the other family members neighbours to see if they strughle. Which they said yes its noisy at times but as their neighbours were not at home much it was not too bad for them. I responded by informing them that their neighbours were actually all spending many hours at an end terraced house next to me so im stuck with all the chaos for hours pretty much each day. Im a nurse and due to lack of sleep high anxiety and nerves I have had nearly 18months off work sick. I am so behind with all my bills and mortgage I am now recieving letters from enforcement agents. I feel totally tormented and am seriously thinking of just walking and ending it all. I have been informed that I will not recieve social housing if I do. In November I took a noise recording with the councils equiptment! 4 evenings in a row of teenagers shouting swearing loud conversations vulnerable adults swearing doors slammed and rap music which was drowning out my tv but wasnt banging loud. This was all adjacent with my 5 year olds bedroom. This was my 3rd recording and I believed id finally proved the noise levels. The council stated it was not a statuatory nuscience but caused by my poor sound insulation

We have been relentlessly stalked by the neighbours for well over a year.They are all related/friends.Every time we go outside someone holds up a mobile phone and starts filming us.There is a morbidly obese woman, close friends with the people next door who films into our property on a regular basis.She is creating a false narrative in some way - we have never spoken to her.We haven't had any help from police or local authorities.We need to make her and her mates leave us alone. What can we do?

J - 24-Apr-18 @ 6:59 PM
So pleased that there is a website in relation to antisocial behaviours/harassment, and sorry to read the experiences that you are all going through. My situation is a little bit different and live in supported housing. Some new neighbours have just arrived across the into an adjacent building owned by London & Quadrant that re-house people.For more than 10 years, a few of those tenants have presented antisocial behaviours, some now either dead because of drink dependency related issues and/or moved onto to other places.I have a great deal of empathy and human compassion for anyone who is clearly not well in themselves, why sometimes their behaviours have arisen out of complex mental-health without the kind of right support to manage this. I myself have mental-health issues yet also a very astute and overall cultured and reasoned person.Why it is imperative that I never judge people's antisocial acts so readily until I am certain that is what is perhaps at the root cause of the issues.Very fortunate that I can always report these problems to my own landlords who can at least challenge the situation themselves and with London and Quadrant directly. However, I am left a bit fed-up/reeling of the fact that again, they appear to have moved in new tenants that also present antisocial behaviours - recently taking pictures of my partner taking out the rubbish.My partner is 6ft5 and a very large man who has suffered a lot of stigmatisation because of his build.He also suffers with mental health issues that are placated by his various medications and not at all a threat to anyone in anyway - a total gentle giant, I want to protect him from the nasty treatment he does not deserve. I do not want to have to re-report the matter to my landlords and the police have rarely been helpful. Neither me or my partner work, yet both of us have long work histories, whilst I have lived in Canada and have various academic skills and bilingual.Few people know of our past histories or that we are capable individuals, yet the benefits system makes it virtually impossible for either of us to pursue individual goals - I am a very talented artist and writer yet still looking into how to achieve some professional goals around this at 45-years of age.

Depressed woman - 15-Apr-18 @ 5:10 PM
I have been living in the home my wife's father left to her when he past on. We since the very day we moved in ,our wretched neighbors have nonstop done unsavory and just plain rude torments. They have constantly harassed and kept a photo log as well as a log of my visitors and length of there stay. They have repeatedly called authorities to our home anytime we do not just hide from the light of day locked up quiet in our home!! These people have called the police over things like us having a baby shower, the police and or code enforcement show up every time no matter how radical there claim may be. The wife of the neighbor has repeatedly fabricated the story of us stealing her mail and in turn she calls authorities. Recently we have been having some issues with a liftstation in our yard that pumps grey water from a collection tank in the center of OUR yard into the public sewer. I have caught the male from next door snooping around our yard taking pictures and cutting the cord that runs my pump.of course the pump stopped working and the tank overflowed.they then called code enforcement complaining that I intentionally pumped waste water into the front ditch and also said they have been the victims of us having a unkempt yard and property , resulting in a 450.00$ warning ticket being issued and a condemned residence sign being placed on our door causing us to have to leave our home until repairs were made .the repairs are being made and the yard has been thoroughly cleaned when we arrived in court to have this ticket dropped there they sat waiting to testify to my every move leading up to this mess like they were the victim of some criminal action..basically I'm writing to gain some advice on how to keep my family and myself from living a normal and happy life free from scrutiny from a vindictive snooping lieing neighbor that seems to enjoy making our life unbearable!!!
