We have a residential property which contains a main house and 3 flatlets. The flatlets are let out and the newest occupant is presenting problems. Since occupation in June, the other tenants and family who occupy main house are plagued by raucous parties, verbal abuse, vulgar language and week long parties at all hours of the day and night. The new tenant has quickly connected with shadier elements in the neighbourhood and we are battling with an influx in traffic and dodgey visitors who do not belong and are being housed despite strict laws concerning stay over guests. There has been two incidents of theft and a few nights ago a young man was found lurking around in the backyard. We would like to address the problem and prevent such activities as some of the characters now frequenting the property are believed to be involved in drug trafficking and are persons of interest in ongoing investigations in our area. There are young women and children and we are concerned for the safety. What would costs be for 3 days, 15 days, and 30 days?
