milly2306milly2306

does anyone else have problems with neighbours. this has been going on for 7 months now and i can't stand it any longer!! music blaring out until 6am most days. on sunday we asked them to turn it down and got punched! police won't do anything because its our word against theirs. have got in touch with environmental dept but they are so slow!! like awake plotting revenge! all suggestions welcome
thanksx

    Phone the police everytime the music is loud, they'll have to come out to get them to turn it down.

    phone the enviromental health, and tell them about the last episode, push them, dont just wait around for them to contact you

    Ear plugs during the night and return the noisy favours during the day....

    You can be as noisy as you like between 7am and 11pm!

    Alternately find out who there landlord is (if they rent) and complain to them directly every time the noise is unacceptable....

    All the incidents would need to be logged too, you should get in touch with the housing office aswell, they might be able to send a letter out about the noise.

    i had simmilar prob a few years ago with a 24/7 barking dog, enviromental health wrote to them straight away and it stopped, keep a diary, remember that the law here is on your side. wish you all the best as its awful:thumbsup:

    We used to have a problem with this too, but only when they would go out and leave it for the whole weekend, it barked constantly, was during the summer too so the windows were open because it was roasting, used to tick me off something awful.

    i would really suggest not wasdting police time with something that can dealt with by enviromental health, we dont have enough police resources as it is without them being used to ask someone to turn their music down, and please im not making light of what your going through but use the appropriate channels to deal with this properly, the police are not going to charge them with anything

    This happened to me with my next door neighbours, went on for approx 18months. i informed my local council and they sent me diary sheets which have to be filled in for every incident, NOTE EVERYTHING DOWN. Then continue to phone the police everytime there is any noise explain you understand that they cant do anything but that you want a reference number from them to show the disturbance has been reported and then note it down in you diary sheets. It really is a long process but it did work for me and i havent heard a peep out pf them for nearly 2 years, i still wanna slap the tart every time i see her tho!!!!!!

    The students next door did exactly this during the first three weeks of their arrival. I solved it by contacting their landlord by letter, email and telephone. He realised that I was going to be a pain in the next so sorted it. I got all the info about noise from the internet and threatened to take matters further if it did not stop. The students got a copy of the letter too. There is hardly a noise out of them now:)

    when i was a student I did this too, the neighbours contacted the landlord by email and letter, so I as the landlord i told him GTFO, the shock he had when he found out I was the landlord.

    he should never have caused trouble by blocking my car in cause he thought the house was empty and I was parking to avoid paying in town.

    hahahahahahahaha i did warn him

    +1. Phone them everytime there is loud music. The Police will eventually get hacked off with them. Also each call to the Police will be logged which will be good evenidence for Environmental Health also.

    aye it got better, he held a grudge for ages and used call up airport taxis and order take aways until they traced his number, then we set about a plan and got a Db noise meter reader and kept the music at the exact level before its legally considered too loud after 11pm.

    great times

    that really childish :x

    he was simply mistakenly thinking he was doing the landlord a favour by blocking the car in. You on the other hand resorted to juvenile behavoir and should be ashamed.

    not really, there had been many many things that led to this, he verbally attacked my mum and dad, so all in all he got what he deserved, I don't have time to explain the entire story but he wasn't liked on street for being a bloody pain, the time when he jumped out in front of my car when leaving my drive for uni for fun......never seen anyone get so angry about dancing in the drivers seat of a car because i refused to talk to him hahahahaha

    i did everything within the LAW so ner ner

    The most important thing to do is to log all events, date, start time, stop time. etc
    See this diary:-
    http://www.woking.gov.uk/planning/envhealthservice/control/noisenuisance/neighbour/diary.pdf
    Get your good neighbours to do the same because it will corroborate your side of things
    Phone police every time and make sure you get an incident number. This is important because they have to respond in a certain time to a certain intensity of calls.

    Call the Environmental Services of the council and insist that they do something about it. It is their responsibility (Statutory Noise Nuisance).

    They can provide sound measuring equipment or neighbour witnesses ie, one of their employees that comes and records the noise disturbance and acts as a witness for you if it goes to court.

    See here, or google noisy neighbours:-
    http://www.dudley.gov.uk/environment--planning/pollution-control/noise-disturbance/complaining-about-noise

    Don't get personally involved with noisy neighbours under any circumstances - you will only help their case if it goes to court.

    Best of luck.
