  1. Hi We moved in to our rented property at Christmas 2017. We both work from home and took the property based on being able to do just that. My fiancé has a photography studio set up here with regular clients coming to the house. In May we found out that the neighbours had sold a patch of their garden to a builder who is now building a house on the land. The noise is unbearable, we are woken up every morning at 7 and we can't use the garden because of the noise and dust. The neighbours are also having their remaining garden paved by a separate company who also make noise from 7am. To
  2. My partner and I live in a 1 bed flat in a house conversion. Our bedroom is above the kitchen/living area of the problem tenants below us. For about 2 years we have been complaining to the landlords about the noise from these tenants. They run a loud extractor fan at all hours of the day and night, bang doors and cupboards, shout at each other and their kids. Now they have a crying baby!! The walls are paper thin to the point where the heating cannot keep the room warm at all. The landlords have written them multiple "warning" letters and had one meeting with them, where they ag

  4. Im a housing association tenant and have been complaining for 6 years now of noise from the upstairs flat. Its not music, i never hear that people walking around heavily/kids jumping around/things being dropped on the floor make almighty booms and creaks. ive lived in lots of properties in my life and not once made any complaints or even noticed bad noise. Its so violently loud it sounds like people are playing catch with heavy pieces of furniture! Its literally driving me crazy and i have just received a letter today saying they are doing nothing about it. Im devastated. Ive had a counci
  5. Completely out of the blue about half the residents of the building where I live have this morning received a letter from Environmental Protection threatening us with noise abatement action due to alarms going off. First, they've clearly made no effort at all to speak to anyone before making these threats. Second, the actual worst culprit isn't on the list of occupiers they've written to. Third, they acknowledge themselves that the basic cause of the problem is that the exceptionally bad weather has caused water to get in to some of the alarm boxes and short them out. We've been
  6. We live in a block of flats that have rules stating work to be done between 9am and 5.30pm Monday to Friday only. No work is permitted during bank holidays either. We have had to endure out of hours, weekend and bank holiday work for non emergency work for months. When we contact the managing agent, they just send the owners a letter and nothing changes. When we tell the builders about this, we get ignored or abused for stating this. It is making our lives a misery as we bought the place to semi retire and enjoy the seaside.
  7.

  8. I have a flat above shops on a main road, there is an ASDA store opposite me, I have just been woken up by workmen in their car park burning the white markings on their car park, this is very loud and it is very difficult to get any sleep, I did not receive any correspondence about this nor did I receive any notification from the council. The noise started at 0100hr, even with the windows shut we can still hear the burning flame. Is there anything we can do I do not consider this as emergency repairs, is this a case of big corporate companies simply not giving a damn about the local peopl
  9. I'm not sure if this is the right section but I can't see a more appropriate one so forgive me if it is the wrong place. I'm writing this in the first person for simplicity but it applies to somebody else. I live in a rural area of Scotland (I only mention this because the laws may be different) and recently my landlord has started using a bird scarer. It starts as soon as it gets light (currently 5.00am) and goes on until dusk. It's located about 400m from my house. It makes a noise like heavy artillery fire - about ten times as loud as a shotgun and it is really disturbing for
  10. i have lived in my flat for 16 years, ive seen 3 occupants from the flat below come and go, then 5 years ago a woman bought the flat below me, all was well for 2 and a half years, due to a death in the family,i became depressed and started drinking, with the drink came music, in short a noise abatement notice was served, i paid the fine, had my possessions removed and got told to abide by the housings rules for 12 months. 8 months into my probation the neighbour started bombarding the housing with complaints about me again, this was aug last year, after i had put
