A tenant of rental property in Bristol failed to adhere to a special tenancy agreement made between him and the local council, it has emerged.

Michael Mullen was made to sign a contract that called for him to behave in his home, but did not follow the guidelines and has been evicted, reports the Bristol Evening Post.

The case underlines the importance of private landlords running tenant credit checks and referencing procedures before letting anyone stay in their properties.

Indeed, buy-to-let professionals are often advised to contact tenants' previous landlords before setting up any agreement.

Various forms of anti-social behaviour led to Mr Mullen and his 19-year-old son being evicted from their Brentry flat - now they have moved into another residence just a matter of doors away from their old place.

Gary Hopkins, cabinet member for environment and community safety at Bristol city council, said: "If he has moved in with a relative or friend close by then his behaviour will be continually monitored and if they are a council tenant their tenancy will be at risk."
