Your Rights Under the Protection From Harassment Act 1997

By: Jeff Durham - Updated: 17 Dec 2017 | 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.

We do need some help and advice.We have been relentlessly stalked by neighbours who park outside our house rather than their own driveway or the street outside their house.They sit in the car spying on us continually, set up a spy cam in their car to film us intimately in our home, shine industrial floodlights into our bedroom and sitting room to film us intimately, have attempted to break in to our property at 05:00am, have tracked our movements and passed this to their associates who have followed us home - and they have left a large 'warning' rock outside our property.Is any of this illegal?We are in a terrible situation - we'll never nowbe able to sell our property so are stuck here for life. It feels unsurvivable - suicide is our only option.

Paul - Your Question:
For th past few months my neighbours have been harassing me and my family, which is my brother (a vulnerable person who has ADHD and ASD) and my mother, just us and no-one else on our street. In the summer months it was using our driveway gates as football goalposts, even when the car was in the drive. They came onto our land to retrieve the ball without our permission. The ball only went as far as the drive but we had previously told them to stay off of our property (which is rented). More recently, due to the snow, they have decided to come onto our drive and proceed to take snow of the top of my mum’s car and the hedges adjoining our land. We again told them to stop coming onto our land. They then started to throw snowballs at our house (doors and windows) which is really rather disruptive especially considering I am often studying (I am a uni student studying law). My brother was standing by the doorway, and when I tried to talk to them, was hit by a snowball. When trying to talk to them, they made it confrontational. There were 4/5/6 of them and one of me. I was keeping a calm and clear head trying to explain what they were doing wrong but were like ‘f*@# it’.The issues here, to sum up, are trespass, harassment, private nuisance, common assault and criminal damage. I have already contacted both 101 and the Housing Association. Both have said keep reporting it to 101 as in the meantime nothing can be done. What are my options here? Persue a conviction? Take civil legal action? We can’t take it any more and we really don’t want to move just because of some idiotic tw@ts. I apologise for the language but it has taken all the fight out of me and I have felt physically sick since the talk that went confrontational.I want them dealt with so that they either stop doing it (an injunction, though I doubt this would stop them) or having them evicted, for breach of contract between them and their landlord.

Our Response:
There are various options available to different authorities if this behaviour gets worse: an injunction; a parenting order, a criminal behaviour order and dispersal are all possibilities. Please see our guide which explains how each of these can be implemented and by whom.

I moved in to a new semi detatched rented property with my partner, my 2 year old son and my 9 year old daughter around 3 months ago now. My 2 year old son like any 2 year old is going through the terrible 2's at the moment and cries for many different reasons. A few weeks ago we had a knock on the door from our neighbour asking if we had children. I confirmed yes we did we had a little girl and a baby 2 year old boy. Her first question was 'do you beat them?' Understandably I was quite shocked by this and confirmed no I do not (I have never/would never laid a finger on either of my children). The neighbour said she could hear what sounded like an upset child which I confirmed was probably my little boy (who After a brief discussion she left). After she had gone I was understandably quite shocked a neighbour had knocked round and made such an outrageous allegation so I knocked on their door and let them know I thought their allegation was disgusting and after a talk she apologised. A week or so later she knocked round again this time with her partner asking if everything was ok as she could hear an upset child again and asked if my daughter was there? With this I felt like I was needing to prove my innocence so I called my daughter downstairs who came down and was of course fine. Then my partner appeared with our 2 year old to show they were both fine. I let her know my son had just been bathed and possibly that's what she could hear. The neighbour again left. With this I thought i would go round to their house again to see what this noise was they could hear. This time she invited me in to have a listen. (As soon as I Walked in to their house I could smell an extremely strong smell of marijuana). When I went in their house I could hear nothing to which she described which she then said maybe she was hearing things. I told them there and then I think they've been smoking too much pot. She again apologised and said she won't come round again. (My daughter is terrified of staying downstairs on her own now in case the neighbour comes round) Last night my son was upset (I think he may of had apoorly tummy as he had diarrhoea during the day). When we could see how upset he was we decided to get him fed, bathed and to bed. Again the neighbour knocked round (I could tell she was high from looking in her eyes) complaining she could hear a distressed child. I again let her know it was probably my little boy who's in the bath. She asked where my daughter was as she hadn't heard her lately and started looking up the stairs (I'm not sure if she was implying something sinister had happened to her). At this point I told her it was none of her business where my daughter was and if she was that concerned she should call the police. My neighbour then said we shouldn't of moved in to this establishment if we have a child who cries. After a brief argument she went. Myself and my family now feel under constant pressure proving our innocence to a com

Lordy- Your Question:
My neighbours constantly harass and call me names, no one talks to me because of lies from one neighbour, and I’m always being glared at from them and their family and friends. If I look out the window or clean them I get called a name. The housing won’t do nothing. I’m 51 and the neighbour involved are in their late 60’s and 70’s. I got no one apart from my husband and I am very lonely

Our Response:
Can you not make some other friends outside of your immediate road? Any clubs/activities you go to? Do you have friends from work that you could socialise with?

At this time of night/morning, the environmental health services should be willing to investigate. We're glad that you have already tried to speak to your neighbour but if they haven't changed then this may be your only option.

Hi hoping someone can help, for the past year or so now my daughter (17)has been the victim of her ex friend and her mother , last year when this started my daughter was so scared to go to college ect due to the fact that this girls dad was driving about outside her college and that the mum and daughter were constantly staring at her and happened to be everywhere my daughter was.The offending girl is insanely jealous of my daughter probably because I have raised my daughter to know right from wrong and she really is a great girl with a huge heart and very grounded for her age , this girl (19) has for the past few years copied everything that my daughter has achieved in life , whenever my daughter said she was going to do something this girl would be doing the same things within days of my daughtereven down to copying what clothes my daughter had bought , it even got so bad that we had said we were going on holiday at the last minute and were shocked to find that they had managed to book into the same place as us and they spent the whole time following us about the resort ,Things have came to a head in the last few weeks and the mother has now taken control and has been doing things like complaining to my daughters boss about my daughter for the most silly things like saying she called her daughet a name which is untrue as my daughter had many staff members with her at the time of the alleged name calling and that this is possibly due to her jealousy that my daughter has managed to secure a job that her daughter could not get as she has a very bad reputation and people dont want this girl working near children as she makes inappropriate comment towards children.I feel that this woman and her daughter are out to scare and intimidate my daughter simply because they are jealous of her and how hard she works.last year it even got so bad that I did go to a lawyer for advice on a non harassment order but withdrew as my daughter had a really stressful time when she witnessed a terrible accident and we didnt want to put her through the stress of a court case but feel that this woman and her daughter have now decided to start on her again and im honestly lost at what is the best thing to do now , would anyone have any advice for me do I go to the police this time and hope that it scares them into backing off or go back to the lawyer ? I dont want to let this lie now as I really dont know how much more my daughter can take of this stalking / harassment /intimidation and I am beginning to fear for her safety as this woman and her daughter are known for being deranged and ruining everyone who comes in contact with, I just feel that they seem to think our life is great ( which its not )and that they want to be us and will do anything and say anything to ruin my daughters life. Any advice would be greatly appreciated thank you

Our Response:
If you fear stalking is posing a potential risk to your daughter then of course you must contact the police. If you want to apply for a court order to prevent contact etc then obviously a lawyer is the best port of call.

Move. Ignore them. Act happy. Do them for harassment and get proof over three months with video evidence then go to the police. Get a solicitor clearly. The last one : build a brick wall and I’m sure you can move houses by advertising online and not making it known

And she is bad mouthing me too the other neighbours its so hard to live like this and the housing commission told me just ignore it but its not nice even though shes old she has no right to do that to me and my family i mind my own business and of course i will defend my children they getting verbally abuse, and i used to smoke cigarettes but not anymore cause i smoke in front of my house she told me not to smoke near her house! Sometimes she will talk in different languages i cant understand so scary though so thats why i told my children not to fight back with the old lady,and the real Estate said give her flower or box of chocolates but she hates me and my family! And when my kids park the car in my driveway she will tell them dont park there, and she will wet us with the hose while shes cleaning her fence! I just hope i can have more patience and it's really annoying really even though shes old! I will just let it go

Im being constantly bullied by my downstairs neighbours for over three years. Police are doing nothing about it neither is new charter housing.They call me all sorts of names very nasty comments about me. I cant go out without being called .police will do nothing as they haven't harmed me. Nee charter wont do anything ither as they turned it all around to make me look like im crazy. Im scared of going out as if i try and defend myself against their abuse they have me done for harrasment for talking to them...They Dont like me because of my life stile they say they Dont want someone like me on their street and people like me should be shot ... I cant even defend myself
Tracie - 6-May-17 @ 3:48 PM
I have been frightened and scared for the last 5yrs and still am because of what has happened to me. None of it is true, no-one helps you. They say harrassement is a serious thing and you shouldnt put up with it but no-one does anything about it. Everytime we rang up about the things that were happening, we were told it was a civil case. Everytime our neighbours rang up, they got help. In the end we were being harrassed by the Safety Team as well as our neighbours. We ended up spendinga lot of money to prove things but still we didnt get help. We proved them wrong, but no-one says sorry, our neighbours just carried on as though it was all our fault and the everyone carried on helping them. I put my story on the other day but it appears to have been taken off.

My husband and I have been harassed by our neighbors for 10 years..We have called the police several times but nothing is done..We have tried to move several times but the woman across the street gets her friends to set up fake clients to buy the house..Very unreasonable demands on contracts.. Destroying real estate flyers..And admitted it openly..Killing our pets teaching her kids to harm our animals and to show hate and disrespect toward us...Had my husband fired from his job in our town..When he got a job in another town she had him followed..Then tried to get him fired there..Has come to my job and openly screamed she wanted to get me in trouble on several occasions. The neighbor has gotten another neighbor involved..Now it's like a gang. We can't drive down our street without being harassed..If we go somewhere, they will stay up late and wait outside for us. Recently we had a cease and desist order drawn..It just made things worse..Any advice..We need help

My 87 yr old mother is being bullied and abused by a neighbour who previously knocked down her garden fence with her paddling pool.She refused to repair it so my mother tried the council and every avenue only to find they couldnt make her repair it.In the end my mother just had it replaced herself and while the builder was trying to erect it he was subjected to foul mouth abuse by this neighbour who would not let him stand in her garden to do the work.Once it was repaired she proceeded to fill her pool and then left it for over a year until yesterday when she decided to empty it.Obviously it all ran into my mothers garden and flooded it with disgusting rotten mouldy water that had be stagnating over the year.My mother put a note over her fence complaining.This neighbour sent the most disgusting letter back accusing my mother of harrassing her etc etc.My mother is extremely upset by this and it is affecting her health and I dont know what to do next.I believe that the empyting of her pool previously had rotted the fence in the first place and now by flooding the garden again she is probably weekening this new fencing.My mother did not keep a copy of her letter but we do have photos of the damage it caused the last time.Should I contact the police as I am worried for my mothers health and this neighbour has always been really nasty to my elderly and frail mother and this new episode is causing her a great deal of stress anxiety worry etc.

We've been having an ongoing neighbour dispute since last August. A neighbour across the road started driving along a pavement through a green space and was using our driveway to exit back out onto the road.It was reported to the police for 3 months due to safety concerns and it wasn't until one night the neighbour almost ran me down the Police were called.Police issued the neighbour with a sectioned 59 warning.Everything went quiet for a few weeks and then it all started.My car was vandalised on the driveway.This was reported to the Police but after 4 weeks, and various emails about our concerns, the Police have made no contact with us. The neighbour has also started using our driveway to turn round her vehicle.This happens 4-5 times a day and at night the headlights are so bright they illuminate the entire living room.This is upsetting my elderly mother but the Police say there's there's nothing they can do and just to pull the curtains together and ignore it.The neighbour has a history of anti-social behaviour and mental health issues and even the Police said the neighbour was abusive an irrational towards them when they issued the warning.I spoke to the neighbour very civilly when it all started but just got a load of verbal abuse. Since this started my mother has been followed and harassed by the neighbour.Although this hasn't happened recently my mothers so intimidated by the neighbour that she refrains from leaving the house if she knows the neighbours is about.All the police have provided is a contact number for victim support.Surely this constant driving in and out of our driveway constitutes as harassment and contravenes her section 59 warning. Is there anything we can do without fear of repercussions and more damage to our vehicle?

My life was destroyed when my husband sent me packing, after 13 years we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to my husband back to me. One day at work, I was distracted, not knowing that my boss called me, so he sat and asked me what it was all about, I told him and he smiled and said it was no problem. I never understood what he meant by it was no problem getting back my husband, he said he used a spell to get back his wife when she left him for another man, and now they are together till date and initially I was shocked hearing something from my boss. He gave me an email address of the Prophet Abuvia which helped him get his wife back, I never believed that this would work, but I had no choice coming into contact with the sayings that I get done, and he asked for my information and that my husband was able to propose to throw him the spell and I sent him the details, but after two days, my mother called me that my husband was pleading that he wants me back, I never believed, because it was just a dream and I had to rush off to my mother's place and to my greatest surprise, was kneeling my husband beg mefor forgiveness that he wants me and the child back home, when I gave prophet Abuvia a conversation regarding sudden change of my husband and he made clear to me that my husband will love me until the end of the world, that he will never leave for another woman. Now me and my husband is back together and started doing funny things he has not done before, he makes me happy and do what it is supposed to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind need, please contact Prophet Abuvia for help. His email is prophet.abuvia AT g m a i l . com his website is prophetAbuviasolutiontemple . webs . com

I live in my own accommodation with my kids. But I'm being harassed by my children's father he's turning up at my home banging my door shouting abuse outside my door parking outside my home of a night watching me and to see if I have any other form of company. Where do I stand in terms of a exchange of my home so he know longer can follow me to know where I live.
