A spokesperson for Norfolk police said the officers had worked closely with Clarion Housing to address concerns from neighbours and people living in the area who had reported problems over several months.
Officers attended Great Yarmouth Magistrates Court on Wednesday to seek a full closure order under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.
The order was granted for a period of three months making it a criminal offence for anybody to be inside the property.
