Letter Noise Neighbour Noisy Loud Music

Noisy neighbours are a huge problem for many residents. Whether the noise is caused by people shouting, dogs barking, loud music, or even noisy sex, it can cause a real problem for neighbours left having to listen to it. Often neighbours simply haven't considered how noisy they are and the effect of that noise on others. Bringing this to their attention will usually resolve the issue. If you need to know more about noise legislation and your rights, we've posted links to our articles following our letter templates below.

So how do you go about discussing the problem with your neighbours?

Talk to your neighbour

Initially try just popping round for a quick chat to your neighbour. If they are never in when you go round, or you don't feel comfortable talking to them face to face, try sending an informal note. If this doesn't resolve the problem, then a more formal letter may be required.

To assist, a template informal note and more formal letter are below:

Informal Note to Neighbours About Noise

Dear [name]

Just a quick note regarding the noise from your property. This can be quite clearly heard from inside my house and so prevents me from getting to sleep on an evening.

Please could you try to keep the noise down a little, particularly overnight?

Thanks for your help.

Best wishes,

[Name]
[Your house number]

Formal Letter to Neighbour About Noise

[Your Address]

[Neighbour's name]
[Address / 'Delivered by hand']

[Date]

Dear [Neighbour's name]/[If unknown, just address as 'Dear Neighbour'],

Re: Noise from [neighbour's address]

I live at [address], next door. I am writing in relation to the noise from your property.The noise specifically is: [select appropriate]

  • Slamming Doors
  • Loud foot traffic/stomping
  • Barking dogs
  • Shouting / loud voices
  • Loud music

You may have previously been unaware of this noise. However it affects me because it can be clearly heard in the habitable areas of my house [and prevents me from sleeping].

The Noise Act 1996 means that the local authority must take steps to investigate any complaints of noise at night time. I am however, keen to resolve this amicably and do not want to report this to the council at this stage; we are after all neighbours! I would therefore be grateful if you could try to reduce any noise between 11pm and 7am.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Kind regards,

Erica- Your Question:
I have been living in my mid terraced home for almost 10 months and I am frequently disturbed by the family that live on one side of me. The family are mum, dad and 3 children under 8 years old. My teenage son and I can hear most things through the wall. I can appreciate that during the day there will be noise from the 3 young children playing, particularly in a small house. However the issues I have are at night when the children do not have a bedtime routine. They are often up until past midnight with the tv on loudly while they are shouting or screaming or running around. The parents are loud too especially the mum. I have mentioned it once but the dad was oblivious to the noise and just said he would tell them to keep it down. Since then I have been logging all noise that has disturbed me. I am reluctant to speak to the mum about it as I’ve heard how she speaks to the children and am worried about her reaction. I have had enough of my sleep being disturbed.

I have lived in my detached house for 25 years, with no noise problems, that's the reason I got a detached house.In the last few months, the next door neighbours got a barking dashund, barking outside my bedroom window, early, when I'm not an early person, from working night shifts for 18 years.I wear earplugs 24/7, so not living, just existing, and I'm 70.Now a new noise, on top of that.music coming through my ears, and I don't know where it's coming from, again early waking me. I went all round the house, took my earplugs out, to see if I could hear where it's coming from. The mystery is how it comes through the earplugs, the same level of noise, if they're in or out.so now I've got the dog barking, and music ringing in my ears, every morning. My heart is pounding with anxiety, as to whether I'll sleep or not. I'm just so miserable about all this, just don't know what to do. My quality of life is zero.

Hi, We recently moved into a new privately rented home (Myself and my Son 10.) The reason I moved to this house was to escape a noisy Romanian family that had moved in next door and had basically forced us out. We suffered their noise for over a year and it literally broke me. I moved to my new house, in a quiet, rural area. The few 2 months were utter bliss. My next door neighbour then took on a lodger. This lodger plays loud music, has a very loud motorbike that he pops out at allsorts of times during the night (01:00, 2:00, 4:00, 4:30...) he is only normally gone for 10 minutes but then comes back and continues to be very loud in his bedroom which is next to mine. I have been round and spoken to the homeowner who promised it wouldn't happen again. It did! I have messaged him and noted down the issues. I have spoken to my landlord who has also been round to discuss the issues I am having. My issue is that this new lodger is stopping me from sleeping at night. I am going to bed worrying about being able to sleep, once asleep and then woken i am worried about getting back to sleep, this normally ends with me getting about 3 hours sleep... He has woken my son too. I work and my son has to go to school. Its simply not fair. This lodger obviously lives a bot of a nocturnal lifestyle, whether there is drugs involved maybe irrelevant but I am pretty sure this is what is happening and helping him be awake all night and sleep all day. I feel that I have done the letters part as my communication has been thorough. I have asked to go round and chat face to face but the homeowner is now ignoring me. What can I do?

Hello. How could I discourage all the kids in neighbourhood from playing/screaming/Yelling/dropping litter in the corner of the culdesac which is right outside my house? The noise alone drives me mad! I can't have my Windows open in the summer and even with these double glazed windows shut I still have to put the subtitles on the tv! And they eat food in the street then discard the wrappers etc which end up in my open plan front garden! Please help??

Lulu - Your Question:
I work from home & my office wall is a boundary wall.My neighbour has erected lean-to sheds against this wall. I was plagued with rats gnawing in the cavity walls for about a year. Eventually I asked them if they had any openings on their side to which they replied ‘No!’ immediately; (I would have expected them to say that they would check, considering they had attached outer buildings to my wall?) A few weeks later I heard a humming noise & thought it was coming from my central heating but it continued when my heating was off. This noise has now increased in volume for long periods of time. It’s obviously a washing machine. I bought a detached house so that I could have peace & quiet - now I am really stressed by this irritating noise while I’m working. The water supply has been sourced from my domestic supply so will be a problem when the government begin charging for water here.These neighbours have also planted fir trees & a tall tree against the front boundary wall which are blocking sunshine from my side, where I grow many potted plants & is the only area where I get sunshine in the late afternoons/evening. I shall discuss the above with them however if they do not wish to be accommodative in resolving anything, can you please advise me any course of action available?

Our Response:
Assuming the lean to sheds are attached to your wall, you can ask for them to be removed as the wall is your property and your neighbour cannot afix anything to it. The civil courts may help if your neighbour objects.

Hi, after moved one year ago for a new brand house, from the housing association with floor and all construction timber frame.. I started with problems with my next door, neighbour's. First with the carpark, they parking on my drive way, and second with two dogs barking all day and third with slamming doors more than 40 times a day and after hours. We've complain with the housing associationlast Summer and they bring a machine to record the noise two weeks in our house from the housing association. The machine proved all complains, and They took the dogs away, but there beenparking on my driveway and slamming doors sometimes at 2, 3 and 4 o'clock in the morning. We complained again with the housing association, and after the machine proved this constant noise (its like exploding bombs in our house and ours brain's) the supervisior from the housing association said it's a normal noise because they have teenagers at home even with the record report from the machine. I have a daughter with 9y and other with 15y and don't do noise because they know it'sthe right way to live tono disturbed other people. After This we had a mediation with ours neighbors, and they stopped a little bit, but after we received a letter from the housing association to explain the time for a continued mediation finished, and made one year for the aprobation contract they starting again every single day and nights. We sent emails directly for our neighbours even in a middle of the night, to tell they slamming doors and Al my family inclusive children wake up. The personal answer was, we've been controled their life's. And last week we received a call from the housing association supervisor to tell us, we need to stop complain by email, because my neighbour's they have a normal life, and the problem cames from ours brains. I think this is a ofense, and her job is a neutral position to resolve problems, and no blamed me and my children. I'de like to know how can I sort this situation, because after one year with interomped Nights constantly, my well-being is constantly disturbed. I'm with a pain on my chest everyday and they think it's a angina pectoris I won with all this stress. That's possible to give your advise for the next step, please Kind regards

They also have an inflatable hot tub which is very noise they are out in the garden in the summer till gone 11pm and are very loud. Our gardens all back on to each other and are very small meaning we can all see into each other’s garden and houses. Myself and my other neighbour complained many times last year but the just carried on.

If you've already complained and nothing has changed, it might be worth a call to your local environmental health department.

My next door neighbours got a young puppy last year,and when they went out it started howling/yapping.I tried to tell her about it and got my head snapped off.Since then it has been a bit better,until the last few days it has started again for over an hour or more and even first thing in the morning when they go to school before I get up.When she is out at work from 8.30 until about 6.00pm some days it is on its own and was quiet so I am thinking it has been restrained or something now to start again.it can be annoying sometimes when they are in but you put up with that.

Our Response:
That's a long time to leave a puppy on its own. It should settle down as it grows older, but if you're concerned you could contact your local council or the RSPCA.

We bought a house a year ago and recently our next door house was privately rented. New neighbours are constantly arguing so loud towards the night that I can hear them at the back of the house. It can last for hours and really stressing every member of our family out. I just wonder how their daughter can sleep through this - she is about 2 yo. Also they do wake up early, around 6am and baby cries very loud and they are shouting to each other waking us up.What can I do or should do to make them stop arguing so loud and keep the noise down early hours (I don't mean the baby as I have a son myself and it not always possible to calm him down straight away) that as it is effecting my life?

Our Response:
Try the note first of all if you don't feel comfortable talking to the neighbour. See if that resolves it then you could consider a more formal letter. Last resort will be a complaint to the environmental health officer.

Hello there. I have been having problems with noisy neighbour who live below me on the lower ground. She is a single mum with two kids. Before I bought the flat above I did a research and found that the previous owner had Twitted about noise from below. I enquired from the sellers lawyer about the tweet and noise before completion of sale I was told the issue had been resolved. Over the last two years she played loud music from 12 am sometimes start at 6 am on a regular basis. Unfortunately my bedroom is above her lounge. I tried to improve insulation and new carpet but that didn’t make much dfference. I spoke emotionally the landlord who had spoken to her but the problem continues and the landlord if anything said to me it’s her lifestyle and annoyed because I constantly bringing the issues. The music is loud that the bedroom could vibrate. She also had dinner party with loud guests in the early hours of the morning. The rest of the residents are aware of my problem and synphstise with me but there’s nothing they could do. The landlord leads the management of the building and not the easiest person to deal with. I reported to the council who had asked me to have a noise dairy to confirm that it is a statutory nuisance. Because this is my weekend flat I’m not there all the time they couldn’t act unless it’s a continuous evidence. I’m still continuing to monitor the noise. My lawyer recommended me to serve a legal notice. I’m just concern that I do that I ll have problems selling my flat for it appears on searches. I have spoken to the neighbour who said she is a single mum and entitled to social life and asked me to use ear plugs if the noise too loud. I’m thinking of writing an informal letter to warn her that the council will take action and I’m willing to take legal action if she doesn’t stop. She did got concern before on the knowledge that the council will get involved. Do advise thank you kindly.

Our Response:
It's worth trying with a letter first. The issue about selling your property will be there whatever action you take, whether that's through the court or simply through a complaint to the landlord etc

Hi Looking for some help/advice. I have a very inconsiderate upstairs neighbour who walks very heavily on her feet seems like she walks round and round her bedroom which is directly above ours. This can start anytime from midnight and throughout the night. She walks around the room slams drawers closed appears to drop items causing loud banging noises. We rarely have a full nights sleep and are exhausted. The noise is throughout the day also but we ignore this but overnight it is out of control. There is no consideration from our neighbour. Does anyone know our rights? I have contacted the antisocial behaviour team who said the law does not recognise this as noise. She would have to play music, Have tv too loud or a dog barking etc.
Rosie - 11-Nov-17 @ 11:54 AM
Hiya. Moved into our flat about a year ago now. And every morning all the way throughout the day her kid it’s throwing stuff running laps. I don’t think we have any sound proofing. It’s a joke I go up she says “can’t you hear me telling him of” that’s not the point if you keep letting him do the same thing of course he’ll keep doing it. It’s almost like there is an adult running around screaming throwing things against the floor. Some mornings can be as early at 5/6 usually around 7-7:30 then it’s constant till about 10 -11 sometimes doesn’t stop all day. What can I do I go and ask to keep it down politely she clearly doesn’t care.

I live in a terraced house. We have recently had new neighbours move in who choose to play the bass guitar for two hours solidly every night. As we're a terrace we share a chimney and they clearly play right in front of their fire place. It's so bad they've woken my daughter (7) up and there have been several occasions where we can't even relax in our own lounge and watch tv because their practising drowns it out. They can play anywhere from 5 - 9 pm. It just seems so absurd that they have to have it connected to the amp or couldn't wear headphones. I haven't done anything about it yet, but I am so angry tonight that I was hoping for some advice.

I bought my first house in November and moved in soon after. Before long it became apparent that I have a party animal living two floors below. He loves to blast loud, ultra bass music every - EVERY - Friday and Saturday night from the minute him and his pals pile in from the clubs at half 2 till about 7 each morning. His mates all get drunk and stumble up and down the close stairs, smoke, shout and spit in the close too. I got enough courage to go down and ask him to turn it down one Friday night a few weeks ago because the bass got so loud, stuff on my chest of drawers in the bedroom were shaking and rattling. Turns out my bedroom is directly above his living room - lucky me. It took four attempts to get someone to answer his door. (Each time I banged it a girl inside could be heard going "woop woop!" - which would be amusing if I wasn't so harassed!) My neighbour answered but was so drunk he was swaying and managed to slur "you've got to understand, the weekends are all I get!" I asked him to turn it down, which he said he would but didn't. I put it down to him going inside and totally forgetting the conversation. The boy is 20 years old (thank you, facebook!) and well and truly into his "lad culture". I'm 26, female and live alone and I'm honestly too scared to approach him. I know it sounds silly, but I get so, so anxious every Friday and Saturday and feel so sad knowing what I'm coming home to on those nights. He's made me regret ever buying this place. My other neighbour is lovely but says she isn't troubled by the noise (she lives on the other side of the building, not directly above him) She said I should just speak to him, he's probably not aware how loud he is. I really don't want to speak to him face to face I'd rather put a letter through his door but don't want to come across as too stern because I want to get this sorted amicably. Any advice?

MeMe - Your Question:
I live next door to the most inconsiderate "woman". she and her 13 year old daughter take a speaker box into the park or just outside her gate and literally blasts music extremely loud. The lyrics her mother allows her to play to the whole neighbourhood is disgusting. sexual content clear swear/curse words. She has no shame. Spoke to the mother a total of 5 times.last time Wednesday gone I told her the music is too loud.she responded with.and I quote - "So.i dont care" whilst I had my baby in my arms after telling her it disturbs my baby when she is trying to sleep. The blatant "i dont give a s**t" attitude about you or your children was alarming. Zero concern for myself and my children and other neighbours. I called Council straight after who told me that they will send a letter warning them of noise complaints issued. After logging a complaint to the Council 5 weeks prior who fobbed me off to the Police and approx 20 calls to Police to complain about the disturbing annoying loud music being blasted they insisted its the councils duty to deal with it. So Im now on my 2nd complaint to the Council who now suppose they will send a letter to the neighbours from hell. I mean apart from the fact she smokes drugs and has foot traffic in and out her house like a bus. you would think she would be discreet not playing music at mega loud volumes. How do I know that an official warning letter from the Council has been sent? And what happens when she continues to play annoying loud music???22

Our Response:
Complain again if it continues, the council have powers to take it further than a warning letter. They can issue an ASBO, pursue it via the courts etc.

Spoke to the mother a total of 5 times..last time Wednesday gone I told her the music is too loud..she responded with..and i quote - "So..i dont care" whilst i had my baby in my arms after telling her it disturbs my baby when she is trying to sleep.The blatant "i dont give a s**t" attitude about you or your children was alarming.Zero concern for myself and my children and other neighbours.I called Council straight after who told me that they will send a letter warning them of noise complaints issued..After logging a complaint to the Council 5 weeks prior who fobbed me off to the Police and approx 20 calls to Police to complain about the disturbing annoying loud music being blasted they insisted its the councils duty to deal with it. So Im now on my 2nd complaint to the Council who now suppose they will send a letter to the neighbours from hell. I mean apart from the fact she smokes drugs and has foot traffic in and out her house like a bus... you would think she would be discreet not playing music at mega loud volumes.. How do I know that an official warning letter from the Council has been sent? And what happens when she continues to play annoying loud music???22

I live in a block of maisonettes. A majority of neighbours are great-except for 2 families. 1 family just recently moved in a few months ago. A family from hell. I have reported to housing office and environment and am keeping a log. So not nice not being able to relax in a place which is supposed to be called a home.
