Neighbours

I've been having problems with my neighbours for the past few months (since they moved in basically back in August).

There's been a noise problem pretty much from the begining though, our bedroom backs onto their living room so noise really travels through into our flat easily.

She often has people round at the weekend, which I'm not so fussed about because its the weekend and I'm often out anyway, but she regularly has people round during the week shouting, playing music and generally not making much effort to be quiet or considerate. The problem is it regularly carries on until 4am.

Bearning in mind I get up for work at 6am that means I get bugger all sleep and have resorted to sleeping with earphones in.

I've been round god know how many times but it never seems to get much reaction and the noise continues.

Had problems with them leaving rubbish in the communal areas for days on end but after complaining they've stopped doing it.

I've complained to my landlord who in turn complained to her landload but I don't think its made any difference.

It's really annoying as I get on really well with everyone else in the flats but my neighbour seems to cause endless hastle.

At the moment I'm thinking my only option is to move out, which I don't really want to do as I really like the flat, location, price, and most of my neighbours.

Oh and I'm not the only one whos complained, but as my bedroom backs onto their living room we probably get it worse than the other flats.

Is there anything else that I can do or is moving on somewhere else my only option?

Drill a hole in the wall, get some gas and next time they have a loud party past 1am, gas them all. That'll learn them.

When leave at 6am put on some very loud music on repeat for the day, mess with their sleep some!

Or spend six months asking the council to do something about it, only to be told that they need to hear it for themselves but only work between the hours of 11.00 and 15.00.

What council? Does it have the noise people who will go round and have words?. Look on the net - all councils have what services are available these days.

Otherwise just move, an advantage of renting.

Bad neighbours are a nightmare, thank goodness I no longer have that problem.

Can you not get all the others on your side and really gang up on her? Failing that, disturbing her sleep may be a good idea....................then the gas.

Why don't you just go around and have a nice chat with them. Buy them a bottle of wine or something, say it's a late xmas present.

If you're really nice to them and get them on your side.

Keep your enemies close and all that.

If that fails i find a tennis ball works the best.

Bounce it off their wall for hours during the night, wait till they come round and say you know what it's like now. It's a last resort.

If you get on good speaking terms with them you can text them or just ask them to turn the music down etc.

That's certainly what I've tried.

There have been two other tennents in there since I've lived here, not had problems with either of them. In fact I got on really well with them, as I do pretty much everyone else in the flats.

From the moment she moved in I've tried to be friendly and civil with them, but she just doesn't seem interested.

Been round numerous times asked politely to turn music down as our bedroom backs onto their living room & it's 3am on a weeknight. She says she'll do it.... shuts the door and nothing changes.

See swissroll post.

In Croydon for instance you'd look here... To view the link you have to Register or Login

If we receive a complaint about loud music, we send a letter to the alleged offender asking them to keep the volume down. We also ask the complainant to keep a record of noise levels. See below for the contact number.

If the noise continues we serve an informal notice on the alleged offender. If this doesn't work, we serve a legal notice, under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. If an officer witnesses a contravention of the notice, we prosecute the offender. If the noise continues, we seize their equipment.

I have thought about leaving the stereo on all day while I'm at work, but I don't want to piss off the people below me... and I don't want to get into a tit for tat situation where we're trying to do things to piss each other off more and more...

If we've got to live next door to each other I'd rather not go down this route... I just wish she would be slightly considerate.

Even though it's bloody tempting.

Thanks for that Maz.

I really want to avoid going down this route though... although I'm getting to the stage where i'll have to as my last report.

I'm pretty certain my car would end up with a nice kicked in door.

All I want if for her to be a bit more thoughtful that having the TV (or music) turned up loud in the middle of the night is a touch inconsiderate.

One way or another you simply have to take action. Now there are some on here arguing - in true mathematical stylee - that two wrongs make a right : but I personally, I think that this approach IS likely to get the car door into trouble.

Trust therefore in the Council initially. I really don't think that receiving a letter from the Council is such a declaration of war that it would cause you trouble. But it would at least start a process.

Or you could move!
