Neighbour disputes

Neighbour disputes

Nuisance neighbours?

Do you have a problem neighbour? Is someone next door, in the street or in your area disrupting your life by playing music too loud or causing nuisance in some other way?

The best way to solve a neighbour dispute is amicably. In most situations, your options will depend on how serious things have become and whether your relationship with your neighbours is still reasonable.

What you can do

  • Try to see things from their point of view and be reasonable
  • Be aware that people who are behaving antisocially might not be aware that they are disturbing you or may not be able to control their behaviour (they might be disabled or have behavioural problems)
  • Remember that if someone has made complaints about you, your behaviour has probably caused them serious distress
  • Above all, stay calm
