This chapter assesses the extent to which tenancy agreements offer a mechanism for governing ASB. It regards the growing emphasis on tenancy agreements as symptomatic of a wider contractualisation of social relations, which include neighbourliness. The discussion also tries to identify how such processes attempt to achieve social control in the lack of trust and legitimate expectations among neighbours. It then pinpoints how the use of good neighbour agreements represents a process through which the relationship between landlords and tenants is extended to include the wider neighbourhood governance functions.

Keywords:   tenancy agreements, social relations, trust, legitimate expectations, neighbourliness, neighbour agreements, landlord-tenant relationship
