We will do all that we can to remove graffiti from our own property within seven days and we can advise private owners to try and achieve the same; however, the responsibility for removal from other properties lies with the respective owner. Graffiti is in some circumstances considered criminal damage by the police and therefore if your property is affected this should be reported to them.
