Anti-Social Behaviour from your Neighbours

By: Jeff Durham - Updated: 9 Apr 2020 | comments*Discuss
 
Neighbours Problem Action Behavior

Anti-social behaviour can put a tremendous amount of strain on people and, if left unchecked, it can ruin a community all too soon, with disputes between neighbours being a common problem. There are a whole range of laws governing anti-social behaviour, which can lead to legal action being taken against the perpetrator(s).

Anti-social Problems

Anti-social behaviour can incorporate a whole range of issues. These can include problems with:

  • Noisy neighbours
  • Drug taking and drinking on the streets
  • Pets – particularly dangerous dogs and Barking Dogs
  • Litter and graffiti
  • Vandalism
  • Racism
  • Teenage gangs or other forms of intimidating groups or individuals such as young and unruly children
  • Abandoned cars
  • Fly tipping

However, it’s important to remember that in certain instances, anti-social behaviour can mean entirely different things to different people. As neighbours, it’s always necessary to realise that we will often have different values, beliefs and opinions, and so what someone might object to and see as anti-social behaviour may not be covered by any of the legislation. For example, if you like to mow your lawn every week, but your next door neighbours takes a more relaxed attitude towards keeping on top of their garden and only mows it every month or so, then that wouldn’t be classed as anti-social behaviour under the current legislation.

How To Tackle Anti-social Behaviour

There are numerous different approaches to tackling anti-social behaviour involving neighbours living close by. The action to take will often be determined by the type of behaviour involved and the person(s) causing the problem. For example, how you deal with your next door neighbour who is playing their music too loudly after midnight is likely to be very different from how you’d tackle the problem of a gang of teenage youths jumping on top of cars in the street.

In certain situations, you may feel that the problem is serious enough to dial 999 to get the police involved or, at the other end of the scale, you might be able to resolve the problem by having an amicable conversation with a neighbour. Remember that neighbours may not even be aware that they are causing a problem.

In other circumstances, however, your best course of action is likely to involve contacting the relevant department within your local authority or alternatively, getting in touch with your local anti-social behaviour co-ordinator, who is likely to be a member of your local police force. You can find out who that is on the Home Office’s website by simply inputting your postcode. Within that website, there are also details about how you can contact your local Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership Representative.

What Happens Next?

If your complaint is investigated, you may be asked to gather evidence by the antisocial behaviour team, which might include keeping a diary or log of the offending behaviour. Depending upon the seriousness of the issue, the police may be called in straight away. Should a particular case go to court, you may also be asked to give evidence.

What About Possible Reprisals?

Many people who are asked to testify against their neighbours in court are frightened to do so for fear of reprisals. However, it can be arranged for you to give evidence anonymously and you do have Confidentiality Rights. Also, a police officer, a doctor, health worker, council official or teacher can also give evidence on your behalf if you feel particularly vulnerable.

Other Solutions

In many cases of antisocial behaviour involving neighbours or other members of the community, a resolution can often be obtained before the matter even gets to court. Official warning letters and interviews can sometimes be sufficient to stop the problem, but other methods include drawing up Acceptable Behaviour Agreements or Parenting Contracts as well as Fixed Penalty Notices and Noise Abatement Notices. The courts also have the power to issue Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) and can resort to other methods such as dispersal orders and demoted tenancies, for example. Read more about how to apply for an anti social behaviour order.

Two years ago I told my rental of 20 years(I am 74)it is the next door terrace to me.The young family seemed nice but within weeks became unpleasant,abusive, damaging my property and making false reports about dog barking and noise nuisance, shouting at me in the street to hurry up and die or get put into a home and that I am the "local loonie".I ended up with shingles due to the stress after 6 months of this which left me with after effects, making dog walking difficult due to lack of balance and energy( I sorted this by employing dog walkers and friends helped)it affected my social life going to classes, giving talks etc, then 2 weeks ago I was taken into hospital with suspected Covid--though I tested negative and came home, I live alone and my dear dog is with my very good friends as my dog walkers have lost their work.Although my other neighbours are helpful and supportive, frankly living next to this hateful pair has ruined my later years, but I never expected to get neighbours from hell when I sold my rental.I made them welcome but I believe they never had any intention of "getting on" with me in a nice, normal way.

I've had problems with a neighbour for 16 years!, he is Alcohol dependent , which means he is classed as 'vulnerable', by both the Police and my Housing Association (they know there were issues when they offered him a tenancy), he's done everything he can to make my life a misery, threatened to rape me, cut my throat, banging, setting fire alarms off, etc, i live in a block of flats, but only one other neighbour (who lives above him) has complained, four years ago, he falsely accused me of assault, he injured himself in front of me (made his leg bleed), rang the Police , i was arrested and locked in a cell for six hours, charged and bailed, whilst of bail, he wouldn't leave me alone, kept abusing me, when that didn't work, he tried to kill one of my cats!, I rang the Police and they came out, but don't know what happened (probably denied it, as he does everything), it went to Trial and I was found not guilty, as he admitted to making it all up and injuring himself,no action was taken against him at all, by either the police or our landlord they actual threatened me witheviction!!, as I refused to sign a behaviour order! (he's had three!), hen he was diagnosed with Schizophrenia, but won't take medication, now it's banging all the time (which he has done for 16 years!), my HA does nothing, i've even gone to the Council, who investigated, but my Landlord came out with a load of lies (saying we were 'friends'???!!!) and they won't take action, i don't know what to do, i have health problems, but my HA keeps suggesting that I move!, all they can offer me, is somewhere I don't want to live! and I can't afford to rent privately, as I'm long term sick and on benefit, I've almost had a breakdown, because of this vile man, he even threatens people on the street, who are too scared to report it, he has everything done for him, even carers (which I got him!), i just don't tknow what to do anymore??

The banging , i live with, I'm a British lived in Leipzig Germany.I have been living in my rent flat for 6 years,a new neighbour moved in July last summer and my peace ends. The man name Christian Methfessel and a girlfriend Karen Yeung make my life hell. I don't speak good Germany and i see my helper once in 2 weeks.I spoke to him so many times nothing has changed. The last time I went there to talk to them to stop making noise, in the morning he call the landlord and a lawyer send me a latter that I have to leave the flat in 2 weeks. I was speechless.They latter said the Krögers are the witness of me calling the guy idiot and Bastard, which was not true. The same Kröger are the couple's in top floor and im direct under them where the Methfessel is now. Guess what they are friends, infact the Kröger are the reason why he's in that flat. They informed him that their flat will be empty and they moving on thethird floor, they're the witness to him. They all LIE against me.

I have been subjected to abusive language & threats from a neighbour & his family fir over 2 years. He has posted online that i was a freak weirdo neighbour who had subjected her child to peadofiles. I filmed his wife shouting over the fence calling me abusive names & him saying i was on borrowed time & my time is coming. Two other neighbours & their children are now doing the same. One of the neighbours who has joined in i was friends withuntil i found out she was messaging & sending my husband disgusting rude pictures of herself. All of the neighbours have children aged between 6-12 years of age. These children have seriously assaulted my 6 year old son one time being with a knife &another by strangulation with a belt. Police & housing have been involved but nothing has been done to stop this. My son has not been out the door to play for over 4 months now for fear of further attacks. I did go out & try to defend myself & my son one day after we were shouted abuse at. I shouted at a mother of 3 of the children. Her partner vame out & threatened me by putting his fist in my face & grabbing my right arm so i couldnt move. When he did this i threatened to hit him. This is when one of their children started to record the argument. This was sent to the housing & the police were called & now i am in trouble for shouting at them & threatening him back. Housing are serving me an injunction & i am still waiting to hear wot the police are going to do. How is this fair.

In October 2019 my neighbour put a note through my door asking had I got a cat litter tray in my bedroom as every time my cat had a dump the smell was waking her up and that it was disgusting .I replied that my cat litter tray was on the landing upstairs and that it is regularly cleaned out and that it couldn’t possibly be my cats (I have 2 house cats ) All was quiet for about a week or so and then I had a letter from my housing association asking to visit which they did . My neighbour had reported me to my landlord ,they came and inspected my property and had no problems they were kept clean etc and then went .The next day the RSPCA turned up she had reported me to them aswellthey looked at my cats inspected my property again and went on there way apologetic that they had wasted their time and mine. During that time and over the next month or so she was banging on my wallseveral times usually around 3am shouting obseninities , this happened 3 times in one week .She also has reported me to the environmental health who told her that she must gather evidence as no one else has any problems with me .Then it stopped everything was fine until February 25th when she started again several days in a row This time I have called the police and I have logged it with the housing association also , There is absolutely no logic in what she is doing she doesn’t bang on my wall during the day it is always between the hours of 2 and 4 in the morning ,my cats do not smell, have never smelled and my house does not either .I have had the cats 3 years and before that I had a cat for a further 2 years that was tragically run over ,but this has all blown up over the last 4 months .We were previously on good terms her daughter and 5 year old grandson live with her and when she does knock on my wall her ranting wakes him up and I am naturally responsible for waking him up due to the smell that comes from my house She is in my opinion trying to use me as a possible excuse for her daughter and grandson to be rehoused as she had previously told me how unfair it was that they are Still waitingand that everyone is pushing in the cue ahead of them .It honestly beggars belief , there are cat litter trays in my kitchen as I moved them from upstairs as soon as she put the first note through my door they are changed regularly the cats are shut in each night and I don’t understand why she thinks that a cat smell can travel through a closed door up the hallway up the stairs through my bedroom wall and through her wall .There never has been a smell there never was a smell and wherever this smell that she has is coming from it certainly isn’t from my house .Incidently my mum sometimes stays with me on a Wednesday evening and weekends as I recently lost my dad and she’s not comfortable staying at hers all the time she has never done it while my mums been there, and the stupidity Is that she has a cat of her own .

I have a neighbour that I applied for an AVO (Violence order) and he has hit up my witness on Messenger and requested that he withdraw his statement or he would disclose everything he said about me. 51 pages of the defence statement I received are all dedicated to what he said about me.In that, he included the intimidation of my witness telling him he lied in the witness statement which he did NOT.In such, my witness said, as he tried to stop the neighbour at disclosing his conversation, "to be honest the only reason she is putting this AVO is because she wants to put up a 2.4 metre fence, and than he tried to encourage him to put up a fence (as he is a fencer), which was NOT true, I had NEVER said that. In turn this makes the statement he put in, which was the truth appear that he could be lying to the judge, as he had tried to squirm his way out of the neighbour disclosing the horrible things he said about me.At the end of the neighbours defence paperwork he discloses that he wants a cross application AVO, on me, my 'new' boyfriend and any other people associated with me.My 'witness' is my boyfriend, but he said he did not want one on him, even though he is the only person that truthfully threatened him. He had make a false police report and received an event number that I had threatened him which police never question me about to validate his lie, however I had been to police on numerous occasions with their threats, included being spat on which I recorded, and harassed at my front gates which I photographed and police never bothered to give an event number or speak to him on the matters. In the mean time, the neighbour has given proof of 'messenger' deceitful conversations done with my witness, behind my back, in which he tells my witness "hit me up of Facebook, she wont know I think she has me blocked". Of course I have him blocked.So, how do I subpoena messenger to find out who contacted who first to prove that he stalked my witness online via messenger? And in his witness statements he says that my witness had added him on facebook and he was 'reluctant to accept', so how do I subpoena 'Facebook' to prove that the two have never been friends, little lone my witness hitting him up? Its pretty obvious he wasn't reluctant since he was the one who invited him, but the entire aim of him inviting him was to 'cause serious trouble in the relationship that I had with the witness'. Both are two very important lies that I need to prove along with him implying I broke and entered and assaulted a different neighbour which I have no record for as I did not do it. Also due to harassment, intimation and stalking by the neighbour toward me,I have learnt the hard way to always take my phone with me. On this particular day we built a privacy screen and the neighbour put a blow horn over the fence, which I stupidly had not taken my phone for as the privacy screen was up and we were only putting the nails in for the plants

I've been living in my house 18 years and approx 13 years ago next door was rented out. This woman has shouted abuse through wall. Called my daughter a slag n abuse of us all. Been going on for that long. She gets drunk n starts. I contacted council as both tenants had nouse detectors in and it picked up singing. Drunken slander loud music at 3 in morning. We have to be up early for workofficer was going to rehouse her then he left and never got passed to anyone else. So carried on . I contacted council again and officer came out and said case was closed despite evidence and would have to make another complaint and go through procedure and as far as he was concerned that was that. So carried on plastering lies on facebook bout us. Contacted housing again and another year on and 6 housing officers and they haven't done anything. Neighbour is moving but nothing to do with housing authority. Surely this isnt right. Husband and I are now on blood pressure medication and they knew this. In my eyes I've paid full rent to them for abusive neighbours.

I live in old house converted into flats above shops. About 2 years ago new neighbour's moved upstairs flat. I am a person who I like my space and privacy but since these men moved above me, they're always knocking on my door asking to borrow something. It's getting on my nerves. They also smoke on the little landing, the smoke comes straight into my living room and makes me feel sick. They leave rubbish bags outside the main door till rats come and tear up the bags. They've been using the space outside to dump rubbish, fridge, beds, all kinds of crap, the place looks like landfill site!. I can't bear it any longer but I can't afford to move just yet. I feel like a prisoner in my own place. It is a 2 bed flat but I think more than 4 people are living up there, is it an HMO? I am so stressed coming home from work everyday, wish could move.

Hi danii, that sounds terrible! We're exactly are you in your city and may I ask where are you in your country? I had a neighbor once who had thrown glass and rocks in my back garden once. Until he continued to do it, obviously. He's 19 and he lives with mommy (obviously) I hate that millennials nowadays can't just go out and get a job, or make some friends. No. They just stay at home throwing rocks AT PUPPIES! and playing there games. Absolute scum. I hope you contact me danii

I’ve been living in the same house for 10 years and about a year ago some chavs moved into a house opposite. They’re very noisy and can be heard anywhere in our house. They sometimes wake me up at daft o’clock in the morning! They park their car in front of our drive and throw their empty beer cans into our front garden. We’re getting fed up with them!
Dellboy - 5-Jan-20 @ 8:08 PM
I moved into a certain road in a small all white village around six years ago and although i am white, because i am not british born there have been a few people here who have given me a very hard time via various forms of anti social behaviour, even though I did absolutely nothing to provoke it (which is what police thought). I have been dealing with a chav neighbour, the grown son of the tenants next door to me, knocking or shaking my door at 3am several times a month. Always knew it was him but couldn't prove it, so spent £400 on a camera which has not deterred him but made him even more determined to knock on that door and avoid the camera. Which he has done. Although what he doesn't know is that he hasn't avoided it entirely. I have waited years to have him nailed for his appalling behaviour. He's done more, but I won't go into detail as I don't want him to find this. Thinks he's a real "bad boy" but all he is is an inbred piece of s**t loser. My housing association has done NOTHING in all these years of him bothering me off and on. They won't move me. They won't warn him, they won't do anything. it is extremely hard to live near to others, and you always get at least one who is a complete t*sser. you wouldn't believe some of the things I've witnessed from my windows. I wish I could win the lottery so I could get away from this scum.

Me and my neighbour have moved in our flats at the same time over 7yrs ago and the neighbour lives above me and she is always banging and I've tryed talking to her and reasonable with her as she is always banging but she don't listen and she still carrys on with banging. It's now got to the stage where I've spoken to our landlord but they haven't done anything about it. So I'm thinking if I can involve the police or not

On and off problems with neighbours downstairs concerning their 4 children. I have always held out the olive branch and managed to reach an agreement with them in the past. All has been ok for about 2 years. Suddenly , out of the blue again, problems with the children. Being rude, riding their bikes through communal hallways and pathways and nearly knocking people over. Swearing. They recently stole a ramp from workmen who were replacing gas pipes in our close. I said nothing. Then they started throwing this heavy ramp around, and nearly hit the cars. I then confiscated the ramp. Workmen came and collected the ramp that they had reported stolen. I did not give their names to the police, again, hoping that this could all re resolved. I might add, I have recently suffered a heart attack & had 3 lots of heart surgery. Fast forward to tonight. screaming abuse outside my flat, tried to run my dog over on their bikes. Final straw was when they rounded on my 76 yr old mum, screaming in her face. Got their friends involved , so approximately 8 kids. Mum and dad finally came home and I met them in the car park to discuss the rudeness. Was met by both parents screaming and shouting, and threatening me, They got all the kids to surround me and had to push my way out.Things did get very heated and I am embarrassed to say that I lost my temper. I told her that her kids were completely out of control. Her response was, "your f***ing lucky I don't ask them to torch your car. I just looked at her, and stated, you have just proven my point. No parental control whatsoever. Question is , where the hell do I go from here. I refuse to be bullied and victimised by this family a moment longer. Even other neighbours had to step in when they went for my mum. What the hell do you do?

I live in a private rented flat and am having problems with 2 neighbors. Loud music at all hours, smell of weed, shouting matches, threatening behaviour from upstairs. Daughter comes home all hours paraletic and walks over my roof to get into her own flat. I suffer from severe anxiety and depression and PTSD as well as chronic conditions that causes severe pain and I feel like I'm trapped and sometimes I wish I was never born. Don't know what to do.
