Is there anyone out there that can help please.

We moved into our ground floor rented maisonette 2 months ago. When we viewwed the property we heard no noise from upstairs and the flat is lovely so we took it. When we moved in we soon realised that upstairs had wooden flooring not only could we hear every footstep and toilet habit etc we could hear all conversations. The people upstairs have 2 kids who get up between 4am and 5am and do not stop until at least 9pm at night. shouting at kids and even to be honest the noise they are making is completely non-intentional and they are just living their lives.


We work shifts and completely understand that silence isnt possible we dont expect to not be able to sleep at all. We have not slept a whole night since we moved in.


We have asked for a structural engineer to look at the preoperty and he said the noise was unbelievable but not the rental companies fault so nothing they could do.


To cut a long story short we are stuck and dont know what to do. We cant keep living in this drum kit and can anyone advise on how to terminate early without it costing a small fortune.


any help will be most gratefully recieved thanks

Unlikely to be honest.


Your only recourse would be to see if you can somehow speak to the owner of upstairs (be they the residents or not) and see if they can put some form of soundproofing down. I assume it is all hard flooring upstairs! Always a mistake for an upstairs flat!


Unfortunately, I cannot see any way in which to terminate it early without sizeable charges. Have you spoke to the agent/landlord about this possibility? They may be amenable to it.

The people upstairs are owners and they apparently have soundproofing down!!! I have sent a letter to my landlord but from the sounds of it we are not going to get out of the contract without a fight-contract is 2 Years. The costs are going to be high but my mental state is probably more valuable than cash. Thanks to those who have responded

Welcome to The Consumer Action Group.



I am just letting you know that as you haven't had any replies to your post yet, it might be better if you post your message again in an appropriate sub-forum. You will get lots of help there.


Also take some time to read around the forum and get used to the layout. It is a big forum and takes a lot of getting used to.



Once you start to find your way, you will soon realise that it is fairly easy to get round and to get the help you need.


It can be bit confusing at first.

Please be advised that my time will be limited for the next few weeks.Thanks for your understanding.
