Tenants have admitted to being spooked by paranormal activity in their homes.

It was logged with the committee, saying: “They advised that they can feel a presence in the property.”
Slough Council also received a grievance from a family who complained their home was haunted by the “very violent and brutal incidents” committed by the previous resident. They said they should have been warned about the property’s gruesome past.
Sheffield Council had a string of cases, including one where the tenant claimed she was being taunted by the ghost of her husband, who had recently died.
Other complaints came from Kensington and Chelsea in central London.
