Being Bullied by a Neighbour? What You Can Do

Bully Bullies Neighbour Harassment

If you, or anyone in your household, feel as though you’re being bullied in your neighbourhood or even your own home, it can potentially make your life unbearable. You have the right to feel safe in your own neighbourhood and protected from harassment, so don’t let a bully take that away from you or your loved ones.

Children Being Bullied

Bullying is a common problem, especially with children. In some cases, a bullying incident may be a one-off, a trivial falling out between children, and isn’t necessarily anything to worry about.

Listen to what your child is saying about the bullies and keep an eye on the situation. It may all blow over.In the meantime, arm your children with strategies to deal with the actions the bullies are taking, such as trying to ignore minor things, asking the bully to stop, and telling an adult.

If a child is being picked on frequently, you could try walking with them to school, supervising play areas or speaking to the parents of the bully or bullies and trying to resolve the issues amicably.

In very serious cases, or examples where there have been actual physical violence, it might be possible as a last resort to take out a restraining order, making the parents and the bullies stay away from your child. If the situation has become that serious or dangerous, it’s advisable to involve the police, get some information on your legal options, and consult a lawyer. Thankfully, it’s rare for childhood bullying to need that sort of intervention.

What’s Considered Bullying?

Bullying and harassment, especially when adults are involved, can be subtle, hard to pinpoint and consist of many separate incidents which can turn into persistent bullying when they are carried out repeatedly or over a long period of time. It is important to know how you are protected under the Protection From Harassment Act.

If you’re being subjected to any form of unwanted behaviour from a neighbour, it can be described as bullying. It could take the form of constant harassment, physical or verbal abuse. Name calling or teasing constantly can be bullying if they upset you or cause you any distress. Some bullies may choose to simply 'blank' you or spread rumours about you. Serious cases may even involve threatening or anti-social behaviour.

In some cases, neighbourhood bullies can be so subtle and their actions can become so regular that their behaviour can be overlooked. That doesn’t make it right. Long term, bullying can cause mental and physical health problems, and affect your well-being.

What to Do if You’re Being Bullied

The very nature of adult bullies make them hard to reason with. You can try avoiding the culprit and hoping they get bored with annoying you, if the bullying is mild.

Kill them with kindness. If the bully sees you as a threat, try befriending them, even if you don’t want to. If you turn the tables and act as if you’re willing to be friendly, you could get a positive response. Try a friendly 'hello' or offer to help them with something. This might not work, but is worth trying as a first course of action.

Try being assertive, too. Use assertive body language, stand straight, don’t avoid eye contact, and confront them with statements like, "I've noticed that you seem to be trying to bully me and I would like you to stop."

If all else fails, or the bullying becomes serious or physical, involve the authorities.

If there’s a discrimination element (you’re being bullied because of your race, gender, disability, sexuality or religion), contact your local authority who may be able to take action. Some local authorities have Safer Neighbourhood Teams who work with communities to identify and address local concerns.

In some cases, a local authority can apply for a court order against the perpetrator, banning them from carrying out anti-social behaviour, nuisance or threats against you or your household, and even evict them if they carry on.

You may be able to take out a civil injunction against the bully. Take advice from a solicitor about your options and what you need to do if that’s the case. Find out more about the Proection from Harassment Act here.

I have had to deal with threatening behaviour and intimidation attempts from my neighbours for some years now. As a semi-detached house in a residential area, the room I inhabit is directly next to one with said neighbours. The wall between these rooms is notably poor when it comes to sound proofing. I can often hear normal spoken conversations when things are quiet enough, Also louder disruptions even when things in my own room are loud andd I'm sure the same is vice-versa for them. I spend a lot of my time conversing with friends using a program on our PCs. We would crack jokes and laugh, and this is heard frequently by the neighbours, true also at times such as 10:30PM-12:00PM. I do not appreciate being listened in on, for one, but also they use facebook messaging to constantly try to intimidate me despite blocking them multiple times for their poor conduct in doing so. There is one neighbour that can be reasoned with and for them I have no problem compromising for. I have accepted that due to the inadequate sound-proofing of this particular wall, we will unfortunately hear more things from each other. In the later hours I do make a conscious effort to lower all speech and volumes but it can never be enough. The problem comes however, when a neighbour first pointed out that they can hear me communicating, and requested that I stopped due to it being close to midnight. This was fair, and I didn't see it until the morning. I apologised and felt genuinely bad. I was then met with a response that was very negative, something along the lines of "yeah thats what I thought" As in 'Yeah back down, you won't do that again' such a comment seems to be an attempt at intimidation. Clearly a response that seemed to have taken my apology for weakness. From this moment on, I have made considerably less effort to be quiet for that particular neighbour. This was quickly followed up with aggressive and threatening words which had caused me to block them. This still continues to this day, and I will not be bullied. I understand that it might be inconvenient, but the wall is a problem we both have. I do not complain when I hear them as I accept it. I refuse to be threatened, I have my own life to live my own way in my own house, the place I am entitled to feel safe. I am sure more progress would have been made if they were more peaceful about things, but unfortunately I am very stubborn in my ways and those that act in this spiteful way towards me regarding the situation will be ignored. Approach the situation correctly and like an adult, or not at all. The only option I can see that might help would be for me to invest in foam based sound-proof tiles on the wall. Let me know what you think, thank you for reading.

I am at my wits end. I usually work odd hours so I stay at my mother's and brothers house. Since lockdown I have been at my own house. I have been hearing my neighbours talking about me. They all gang up together. Their kids are shouting things about me all day. On top of this I am apparently the guilty party. I play my surround sound all day and loud I have turned it down for them plus I have cut my garden to keep them happy. I have been to the police about the verbal abuse from the kids and I am a liar according to them. I have been on anti depressants for over a year because of the kids in the area. I now feel guilty about doing anything in my own house. I have told my family and they think I am paranoid but I don't think I am. I have had trouble with neighbours and their offspring for 20 years. I'm a witch.,spaggy whore, mad women and that women from that house. I feel like I am a target because I am by myself and my family live 5 miles away. I need some support right now.

Wow, so many thug neighbours out there causing distress to good people who just want to enjoy their home in peace. Harassment and bullying is NEVER ok. But police are passive when it comes to protecting the community. I live across the road ftom an 80 year old drug dealer and his son with a 20 year criminal wrap sheet. They constantly park up on my property, damaging plants, play loud music, encourage their dog to bark 24/7 and have a number of undesirable associates turn up at various times. They've even used company trucks to harass us parking directly outsude to block our view. Police say they have to 'manage' them as they don't respond to force.... i say what's the point of the police then? Your job is to protect the community not go soft on criminals as they just see it as condoning their actions! Feeling very very frustrated right now.

@heathergrace.I have a very similar problem. My neighbour cannot stand the fact i am a transvestite. He bangs plastic pop bottles off the walls and ceilings when i go to bed, cupboard doors. He does it in such a way even if the asbo could be bothered to deal with it-chances are i wouldnt be able to record it. After 3 years of this i am well angry. The housing have been less than helpful,even to the point of meditation (which the little saddo requested!) I notice that the real troublemakers seem to use this 'stealth' abusive approach. I have no respect for cowards or people that dont contribute to society in a healthy manner.He will either get bored or do the decent thing and leave. I feel the same will happen for you. Just hold on.

I like to share my story. Few months ago me and my husband just recently bought a new house and we also new in local community. We realised the new house is very old building and needed to repairs and renovations. On first day we about to renovation my husband spoke to our new neighbour. They seems very friendly first place. My husband told them we might have major renovation during lockdown. After a week both of my neighbour start complain and told us we re so noisy due a lot of repairs. The renovations was involving rewire new cable, plastering, replace new floor and build new toilet loo in the downstairs. After day three, we also receive complain from next neighbour warned us not to park near their property where is they park their cars in public road. I believe public road is allowed to park for every one. The next morning we find cone put on public roads near their property where is they have some parking space. I believe someone who put the cone is intend us not to park. One of the my neighbour partner warned us not to park closely to their car. By the time he warned us he talking behind of my husband instead not greet or even talk in professional and he told us to stay away. After he warned us he purposely drive his car loud accelerate.I was deep down when both of my neighbour is not really welcome.Me and my husband try be nice and greet them everytime we saw our neighbour passed by though they never smile or response.

I hAVE HAD TROUBLE WITH MY NEIGHBOURS FOR YEARS WE BOTH OWN OUR PROPERTIES,i Have had bricks thrown thrown the window. reported to the police for nothing abusive language water thrown over me cars parked across our drive my husband of 83 has dementia and they call him names and are agressive they now threaten to take the dividing fence down and kill my chickens and geese
17 horses - 26-May-20 @ 8:31 PM
I can relate to all of your comments.Huck.. I especially feel you put the nail on the head... I also feel my neighbor's harassment is partially financially motivated...that iswhy I have not reported him to the police or anything public.I believe he is trying to make me sell the property before I have a chance to improve it and then get it for his grown kids. What he has been doing is illegal an it makes me sad because we were friends for years but he decided he wanted to build on my property and I said no...and it has been harassment and lies to the other neighbors ever since.Sometimes threats.Someday I will catch him on videotape.I have photographs of the last 4 years of harassment expecting we will be in court someday. I am tired of him calling me a piece of ____ and other foul remarks every time I walk out the front door.He is a pillar in his local Catholic Church. I wonder if I should inform the priest of his behavior or if that will just result in increased retaliation.I have tried continual kindness in the face of his remarks and I believe he may have a touch of early onset dementia..but he is deliberately trying to kiss butt to some of the neighbors that formerly were just my friends and not his.Thankfully one of them is a policeman and does not like gossip so I think his efforts won't go far.I would like some peace without having to move.If I move ever I will be renting the place to someone else I will never sell to him ever and reward his misbehavior.

Hi I am having problems with my neighbours next door for a long time now I suffer from chronic fatigue and don’t go out very much my neighbour son keeps tapping loud in the middle of the night knowing that I have chronic fatigue I have reported everything to my housing association who won’t deal with it who have passed me on to the council I am finding it really difficult and don’t safe in my own home.

My neighbour moved into their council house in 2009,knowing his reputation,for Anti Social Behaviour,I made the mistake of warning him not to do it here."Big Mistake ". Almost immediately he started his nonsense.It went from bad to worse,parties Every Saturday,with music so loud we couldn't hear our telly.My wife was at the start of Dementia,and could not stand loud noise.During one of their parties,they started banging our windows,with clothes poles," Yes Clothes poles ",I went to their door,( I was 68 then )asking them to turn the noise down as my wife was crying with the noise. I was met with Abuse,Threats,etc,they slammed the door in my face,and started laughing.I called the Police,who stopped them.Then they went into their back garden and started again,Being a Water Bailiff at that time meant I was away at weekends on duty. My neighbour was fishing one Saturday while I was on duty,and patrolling the loch to check permits,and Rods,I caught his pal Breaking the loch rules. I was asked to make a report of this,to committee,and both received bans,although he was doing nothing wrong that I could see. Anyway he took his temper out on my wife when I was away on duty.She was very frightened by him.So a few weeks later he waited till I was on duty and came to the loch demanding a permit,knowing he could not get one. Things went from bad to worse,and I was arrested by Police,for assault. ,He,'s now banned for life from the loch,for assaulting me. My wife is now in care due to his behaviour, His son has twice been at my door wanting me to fight with him,he's 19,I'm now 75. He's been weakening me up at all hours of the night,verbally abusing me in my back garden,spreading stories about me that are not true. It got so bad at night that I reported him nonsense to the council,who stopped his parties,after he put his music on at 3am. Now I feel they're intimidating me to force me to sell my house.Been to police,who told.me to ignore them entirely.

I can relate to all these comments. Our next door neighbour has bullied us over the last 20 years. He deliberately pulled his car down which caused us problems for us getting in and out our drive. He had the cheek to put a Keep Driveway Clear sign on his gate which he utterly refuses to use his own drive. We get aggressively stared at by the neighbours directly opposite us as he utterly refuses to enable us to pull our second car back to give them an angle for a turn as we are directly opposite their drive. He has also played music at an unacceptable high volume late at night and bangs in the attic constantly. He does this well after 11pm whilst we are trying to get to sleep. He has also been caught red handed by myself by breaking things in our front and back garden. Cleary he was stretching and we were trying to grow our back hedge up for privacy. I had to put in wooden fence markers to mark our side off.He also destroyed our back lawn with a fence he imposed on us without giving us any say in the matter and total disregard for our rights. Took the piss out of us and we ended up with a poorly made fence with holes in it now and it is way too short. Only now the shrubbery is growing taller on our side for privacy. He has fly tipped his garden refuse across the road which is a criminal offence. He has placed tree branches which he had cut off within his garden and placed them in between a lamppost outside an Indian family’s house which is unacceptable and racist. I have noticed plants on the boundary between him at the back have done poorly and died, wonder if he is deliberately poisoning our plants at night. He deliberately fails to inform us when he is carrying out building works and we wake up to his building materials, right outside our house with no prior warning as he put on a double side extension. The front wall is damaged because of this. He has also spread false rumours about us to other neighbours and we get starred at unpleasantly and growled by them frequently. He totally ignores us and snubs us all the time. His new partner is exactly the same and ignores us and her back is turned against us. His first wife died due to a diabetic coma as he would regularly leave her on her own unaided. He did this numerous times to her, and the last time he did this she died on his watch, due to his neglect and abandonment towards a vulnerable adult with mental health issues associated with diabetes. There is a triangle sort of friendship with them and the ones directly opposite and on their other side. We are constantly ignored and we were snubbed last year when our dad sadly passed away. They sad thing is we have lived here before they did and don't understand their behaviour considering we were here first. The other way around I could sort of get their dislike towards us. We mind our own business and are not nosy in any way whatsoever. When my dad was ill and passed away with oesophageal cancer last summer, the am

I read most of the comments and it truly is a sad world that so many people feel they have the right to abuse and exploit and try their best to intimidate people that are just trying to work hard, pay there own way wether it be through a job or if they are on benefits. I have neighbours who have caused me no end of stress and distress ie through countless dog ( two jack Russell’s)barking episodes over the years ( I’m a night shift worker and have worked throughout this challenging time which we all have had to deal with. ) My neighbours let the dogs bark in the bedroom next to mine, she vacuums like a a mad woman banging around in the bedroom next to mine(terrace). There have been other issues being looked into to do with my services, The man there has been in my garden when I am not around and when I finally got a few days off from work I caught him looking or hanging over my fence and thought let it go only to see after a short while he was actually in my garden and he had taken a perfectly fine upright fence panel down ( luckily I had only two days prior taken a photo of the garden) he said it was to fix and when I asked what the hell he was doing the woman came out red and swearing loads at me. What truly baffles me is how can you seriously be as mad as your jack Russell's when you have not even had the decency to inform me of your intentions to fix a fence that was fine but being pulled by a (a bit) shrub in their garden. Some people in life are decent and respectful and unfortunately for all of us some are clearly rude, ignorant and selfish and lack any moral standards in respecting a persons space that they pay out for. Good luck to all on here and I wish at some point we all find some kind of peace, and PLEASE remember there are many more good people than bad,even though it’s hard to see it when we are all dealing with this. Stay strong ?? and big hug to all as it is frustrating

My heart goes out to you all!I note that there appears to be a common theme here where neighbours gang up on each other and use friends also to intimidateThe worst thing is that they do this, involving the police in the process.The police take the side of the many not the few, the rest I'm sure you know.Going through bullying by different neighbours taking it in turn to harass.It's awful. I note how many people are on their own too, and are quiet, we're just target practice.It does not help anyone. I just wish that anti-social behavior was addressed once and for all, it ruins people's lives. I've seen what the police do.It's time that things changed. You'd also think that during the dreadful time we're going through at present things would be better but alas their not. What a society! Angel I know just how you are feeling, you're not alone!Try and speak to someone, there are quite a few helplines around at present, you're looking after vulnerable family members and need some help with this, don't despair, we're all with you! Bets of luck to you all!

I am a victim of anti social behaviour, bullying and noise. My neighbour makes me feel scared to leave the house - she has been racist, throws rubbish in my garden, spreads lies to the surrounding neighbours about me, calls me names, shouts and it’s like living in a club every night. I have a terminally ill mum and sister and I work full time. I have been reporting this to the Hosuing association and they just don’t care. I’m struggling with anxiety but try not to show this as I’m trying to be strong for my mum and sister but I’m at breaking edge point. Any advice of what I can do please?

My next door neighbor is a delusional douchbag. Both of the husband and wife are jealous of me because I do everything. I go pay errands for my mom, I go grocery shopping, I go to the mailbox, I go order take out, and pay transportation to go. I also let my brother take out the trash. That one incident that happened that day, my brother asked the man next door if he could set up an account by paying our rent online for me. I thought he asked his other friend who lived on the otherside of the apartments that he was going to help me out with setting my account up to help pay my rent online. He tried to ask his friend for help, but he wasn't there at the time. When my brother came back to tell me and my mom that his friend wasn't home at the time, he asked the neighbors next door without my mom's permission. I shook my head NO and my mom said, "ARE YOU CRAZY? My mom isn't the type to share her personal info with nobody. I had agreed with my mom too. My mom told my brother to go back and go tell him that we don't need his help. Then all of a sudden the husband and wife started to act weird. For somehow, they probably wanted to know how we were getting by. Me and my family are private people and we don't like spreading our personal lives on the 6'0 clock news. Everything I do it makes them feel intimated and it fears them so bad because me and my family are doing better than them. Even my mom's nurse comes in the mornings for a visit. My mom's nurse told her that every morning that woman next door always sits outside just to smoke a cigarette just waiting for her or to tell her something. One time my mom's nurse tried to say hi to her but didn't reply back. It seems that everything changed between my family and the next door douchebags. They always seem to watch what we're doing with our lives, instead of doing their own thing. It even shows that they were showing their true colors. Even the douchebag husband nextdoor would get mad everytime I have something in my hand, I would order take out from the restaurant. The weirdest creepy crap I hear a loud cough or a loud sneeze right by my door. It would probably even sound close by my door that's how I could hear the sound of it 'cause I always tend to be in my recliner watching tv. Nobody don't cough or sneeze like that on purpose. I know how a cough or sneeze is real. But for that part? That's not a real cough or sneeze at all. I just want to be left alone. I want to live my life at peace.

My neighbour 4 doors away from us won't stop bullying me and my brothers .I am a pharmacist & my brothers all well educated with degrees & we all have good jobs. My neighbour is so jealous of us when they see us driving nice car or even going to the park to walk our dog.It is uncomfortable that They are always watching me and my mom and my brothers and keep ruining our reputations with their lies. We called the cops on them because he said mean things to me while I was walking the dog and insulting me telling me off for my race or not picking the dog poo being very racist, abusive & calling me names & body shaming he made me cry in front of the whole neighbourhood I had a massive panic attack and a nervous breakdown I don't need the stress from himbut he didn’tcare. He still continued harassing me and my brothers. We moved to the neighbourhood in Brentford london in 2001 and still he Never loses an opportunity to harass us. He wanted us to move so bad even though it’s our own place on mortgage and we have done the house nice and we mind our own business and that is not enough for them.

I wish I couldmediate for you people . For 3 years day and night I have been targeted by a 2 people living below me. My neighbour in the basement said that I am an ideal tenant because I am quiet. If I go into the kitchen they ridicule me by grunting as if I am an animal. The person shouts why dont you fling go away?. I have constant daily ridiculing just for being in this flat which is a housing association. They bought there flat at auction for cash. 500.000 They became violent over a so called leak. Which was not even a danger. I got aggresively subjected to verbal threats and name calling. It took me completely by surprise. Safer neighbourhood got involved and said to me do you think if we say something I will make it worse. Now they seem to have right under my floorboards and are harassing me with creepy noises. It's all mind games. If I have a bath they start by mak7ng strange noises too to makeme feel uncomfortable. PC allan from safer neighbourhood said that because I did not want her to come into my flat she is holding it against me and that she is manipulative. If I dont react they target me daily just because I am here. The housing officer said that I call the police but if I do I am threatened verbally from them below.

I wish I couldmediate for you people . For 3 years day and night I have been targeted by a 2 people living below me. My neighbour in the basement said that I am an ideal tenant because I am quiet. If I go into the kitchen they ridicule me by grunting as if I am an animal. The person shouts why dont you fling go away?. I have constant daily ridiculing just for being in this flat which is a housing association. They bought there flat at auction for cash. 500.000 They became violent over a so called leak. Which was not even a danger. I got aggresively subjected to verbal threats and name calling. It took me completely by surprise. Safer neighbourhood got involved and said to me do you think if we say something I will make it worse. Now they seem to have right under my floorboards and are harassing me with creepy noises. It's all mind games. If I have a bath they start by mak7ng strange noises too to makeme feel uncomfortable. PC allan from safer neighbourhood said that because I did not want her to come into my flat she is holding it against me and that she is manipulative. If I dont react they target me daily just because I am here. The housing officer said that I call the police but if I do I am threatened verbally from them below.

My neighbors from Hell won't stop bullying me and my elderly Mom. I lost my father and brother at a young age and there is no men in our lives.I do the work outside and I am hearing impaired. My older neighbors (in 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's) are so jealous of me when I do work outside, like raking the leaves (we have no trees), shoveling the snow, getting the mails, driving my mom to the doctors and to the cemetery on a special occasion, like their birthdays and death dates, going to the grocery stores and they hate all of that and they hate it when my older sister comes over to visit one time a week or two weeks. They would get even with us for that. It is unbelievable. They are always watching me and my mom and my sister and keep ruining our reputations with their lies. We called the cops on them because they were doing mean things to us and they made me to do more work outside. I had a massive heart attack and I don't need the stress from them but they don't care. They still continue harassing me and my mom. We moved to the neighborhood in Omaha, Nebraska 13 years ago and still they all take turn to harass us. Our neighborhood is a clique. They wanted us to move so bad even though our place and lawn is nice and we mind our own business and that is not enough for them.When we first moved to our house and it was a dump and a mess so we fixed it up and it looks nice and now they are all jealous of us and they can't handle it.

I’ve been living in a 1 bed flat with my son for 3 years now my neighbour that lives below me has been harassing me from the start she has fabricated many stories to my council I have proven all of her allocations to be false as I’ve had actually proof it’s a lie for example saying I’ve had a house party when I wasn’t even home that weekend . she shouts and swears at me and my son the the council don’t care I’m getting really depressed and I’m scared to do simple things like put my washing machine on as she shouts at every sound I make my child can’t even run in the house it’s caused me to have serious anxiety and I don’t know that to do anymore.
