We`ll continue to close down properties we rent out if there`s criminal activity going on there.
That`s the threat from Kettering Borough Council.
Recently the authority obtained an order to shut a house on Sackville Street after it was discovered drug dealing was happening.
The ruling means it`ll be a criminal offence for anyone including the tenant to return to the address for the next three months.
The council will now make a further court application to try and have the tenant evicted from the home.
