<p>The Department expects social landlords in England to take appropriate action to tackle the use of drugs in social housing and the Regulator of Social Housing requires them to work in partnership with other agencies to prevent and tackle all forms of anti-social behaviour in the neighbourhoods where they own homes.</p><p>Landlords already have a discretionary ground under the Housing Act 1985 to seek possession against a tenant who has been convicted of using their property or allowing it to be used for immoral or illegal purposes.</p><p>The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 goes further and includes an absolute ground for possession which makes it easier to evict anti-social tenants who have already been convicted for specific offences including drug-related offences.</p><p>The Government’s 2017 Drug Strategy sets out a balanced approach which brings together police, health, community and global partners to tackle the illicit drug trade, protect the most vulnerable and help those with a drug dependency to recover and turn their lives around<strong>.</strong></p>
