A council tenant in Honiton has been evicted for anti-social behaviour.
East Devon District Council (EDDC) says neighbours of the tenant of a two-bedroom flat complained of harassment and noise.
The council has also this week announced an eviction in Exmouth.
The council says both tenants ignored all warnings and refused to engage with the council or the police.
Councillor Jill Elson, EDDC’s portfolio holder for housing, said: “The decision to evict a tenant is not taken lightly and we have worked hard with a number of agencies, including the police, to engage with these people over their unacceptable behaviour.
“Our actions demonstrate that the council takes a tough line in dealing with anti social behaviour and I want to reassure our valued tenants that we will not tolerate anyone who causes them distress or harassment.
“I look forward to welcoming new tenants to these homes.”
