Section 1. Overview

1.6 Include a 'no harassment' clause in the tenancy agreement

•  Include a clause in your tenancy agreement which specifically prohibits racial harassment.

•  It should clearly state that racial harassment breaches the conditions of the tenancy and will lead to action which may include eviction.

•  The clause could also include other forms of anti-social behaviour.

•  The types of behaviour covered by the clause should be clearly stated.

•  Alert new tenants to the clause in the tenancy agreement and the landlord's policy on tackling racial harassment
