Mom Faced Eviction Because Of Her Toddler


Mom Faced Eviction Because Of Her Toddler

Sapphire Curzon lives in the U.K. and is the mom to a happy, healthy toddler named Callum.

Callum is a rambunctious little boy, but Curzon never thought that could get her evicted.

Curzon received a letter from the housing department where she lives and was informed that her son plays with his toys too loud, and could ultimately get her evicted.  

The landlord threatened to serve her with an ASBO, or anti-social behavior order, which is usually given out by a court as a result of people rioting, drunk driving, or dealing drugs. It makes the defendant stop whatever behavior has been complained about.

Curzon was rightly upset by this letter and went public with her problem.

"All my son does is run around and play with cars, trucks and building blocks," Curzon said. "I find myself now constantly telling him off. But I shouldn't tell him off because he's playing. It's just what a child does. He gets excited. "˜Whatever noise my son makes I feel like I have to scold him straight away. I've essentially having to stop him from having any fun. He's a two-year-old child. What is he supposed to do? I have told him to try to be a little less excitable and hyperactive, but he is just full of beans.

"I'm not going to punish him for being a happy child," Curzon said. "I knew the neighbors were annoyed, but I wasn't ever expecting to get the letter."

While an ASBO doesn't go on your criminal record, it can last for two years in the system and if you break the conditions that's when things get recorded.

"It's really making me frightened because I'm scared of going to court," she said. "I'm not a criminal. I'm just a single mum with a toddler son."

The conditions of Sapphire Curzon's letter are pretty vague, stating she can't "do anything or allow anything to be done in the premises or communal areas or the locality which causes or would be likely to cause nuisance, annoyance or harassment to anyone living in or visiting in the locality."

Jason Cannon, director at Gedling Homes, said: "˜As with all reports of noise or anti-social behavior, we have a duty to look into these on behalf of our tenants to help them live happily in their homes. We've been in touch with Miss Curzon about complaints of noise coming from her property in the early hours of the morning and have reminded her of the rules of her tenancy agreement.'

Callum's dad Kyle Fisher, 21, says: "˜It's bang out of order. He is the only noise. We got onto the council this morning and they've said there is nothing they can do. We've just got to keep him under control.'

While it's hard to know just how loud Callum was being and what other circumstances are involved, it still seems pretty extreme to get to this level don't you think?
