What to do if Neighbours are Spreading Rumours About you

By: Jeff Durham - Updated: 27 Jul 2019 | comments*Discuss
Dealing With Neighbour Rumours Coping

Unfortunately, we live in a world where gossip and rumour-mongering is prevalent throughout the whole of society. Often, it comes about as a result of the person who is spreading the rumours about you being very insecure, and may even be jealous or envious of you for whatever reason.

Try To Rise Above It

Firstly, although nobody enjoys being gossiped about, it’s important to realise that most gossip and any rumours that are spread about you will probably be pretty harmless. Wherever possible, you should try to keep a cool head and let it rise above you.

Much of the time, the person(s) who is spreading rumours are hoping that they can provoke you into some kind of retaliatory action so the more you can ignore them the better. Laugh things off if another neighbour approaches you with some gossip, and the likelihood is that they will lose interest, too. The rumour ‘spreader’ is more likely to start to feel that they're the one that other neighbours are starting to pity.

What if it Starts Becoming Malicious?

Although most gossip and rumours are pretty harmless, even if they can be a bit hurtful, sometimes they can start to get out of control and, before long, you can feel quite victimised, especially if the person spreading the rumours have been able to coerce other neighbours to ‘jump on board’. This can sometimes be very damaging to the mental health of the victim.

You might start feeling as though everyone is laughing at you or condemning you and this can lead to you feeling paranoid or suffer symptoms of anxiety and depression. If this happens, there is a real case of harassment taking place now and you are Protected By Law Against Harassment. You may wish to approach the police or, perhaps a better course of action would be to contact your local authority’s anti-social behaviour team, if they have one, and explain the issue to them.

Confronting the Rumour Monger

Before considering taking any of the actions above, it may well be worth contacting the rumour monger first to discuss the situation. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll end up becoming friends with them but sometimes rumours originate as a result of complete misunderstandings, so it might help to ask them why they have been spreading rumours about you and on what grounds are they basing their assumptions.

It’s also useful to tell the person how their actions have affected you, especially if there are no grounds for the rumours in the first place. Even if you don’t get the desired response, it may be worth asking your neighbour if they’d be prepared to Speak To A Mediator with you to help reach some kind of agreement.

Taking Legal Action

Unless the rumours can be proven to constitute some kind of harassment, taking the person to court is fraught with danger. Firstly, you’ll need to be able to provide proof that their comments are slanderous and have caused defamation to your character, and that’s often quite difficult to prove. Also, not only will legal action be costly, a defamation lawsuit may not necessarily result in any restoration of your character, and may even damage your reputation further.

Therefore, simply ignoring or laughing off rumours are usually the best way to go about dealing with them and people will soon get bored. However, if they do start to cause you harassment and make you feel that you’re being wrongly persecuted, then the threat of involving the police or actually involving them is perfectly acceptable under laws to deal with harassment.

I have been having problems with a neighbour who has been gossiping to other neighbours about me since I became disabled in 2016. I have heard her telling others that I'm not that bad. That I dont need a wheelchair. That she knows worse than me. Only last week I heard her and another neighbour talking about her daughter. The a neighbour asked her if her daughter and partner know all about me which she responded with oh yes they know all about her. I have done absolutely nothing to this woman I've always been nice and friendly towards all my neighbours. In fact this person has gossipped about me so much to others that I'm being treated differently by others now. Because they have been brainwashed by this person leading them to think bad of me. This woman has also started to touch stuff that belongs to me like my section of the communal garden under my bedroom window and claimed it as hers. She has also put her washing line outside my window where mine is ment to be. Last night I noticed that after a friend had been kind enough to help place my rotary line in another area that it has been tampered with. Everyone leaves there lines up but she has put my line down without even asking me. I have damaged tendons in my wrist at the moment so I'm unable to push it back up. Also because of my disabilitys I am struggling to hang washing out and only do large bedding items as and when I can. So to see my line had been tampered with is going to put me in another awkward position to ask for help from a neighbour. It has made me so ill stressing over all the bad things that are being said about me that aren't true and now my personal possessions are being tampered with behind my back. I already suffer from ptsd after an assault that took place in my flat and been mentally abused by an ex. So having this on top of everything I cant cope. What should I do? Please if anyone can help me I'm at the end of my tether.

My wife and I have been subjected to physical assaults, intimidation, harassment and vandalism on a constant daily basis now for the five years of our social housing tenancy with our local LA. The root of our problem is that I am an Irish Citizen and my neighbours do not want us living in their park. The Police are dealing with our issues but our landlords (Castle Point Borough Council) are not. Their stance is they do not get involved in matters of anti social problems. They told me to stop sending emails to them that they are not referees between neighbours. The most recent assault on us was a vicious physical assault that resulted in that neighbour, her boyfriend and a friend getting a Community Resolution Order (Each) and the tenant a 'Community Warning' from the Police. This however was pointless as this neighbour is continuing to attack us and harass us. She has now also begun to coerce other neighbours to ‘jump on board’ with her and they too are attacking us. We sought the help from the LA (Council) but they told me to stop bothering them. We would leave but we cannot afford to. Our life living here is hell on earth.

My family and l live in the middle of many older nabours and it's an old wardens house and because the warden has left that helped a lot of the older nabours they hate us living here but my son who is autistic feels safe here and we love our home.The older people play bingo in the community centre next door and you can here them shouting about us throwing hate speech and we have been to the police and they have spoken to the two that have caused these problems by getting others to join in the shouting and pointing the finger. I don't work and care for my wife who is registered as disabled and look after my son as he has fits at random times my daughter is a God send and is doing fantastic but when she goes out to play the nabours grunt at her and twitch the curtins. But we are not leaving so bigger to them Matthew UK

The anti social behaviour team is a joke. Neighbours now spreading rumours and phoning sspca saying we are cruel to our dog. THEY were caught with council recording device, AND their son formally warned by night time noise team. HE is now phoning the asbt on a regular basis complaining about us. The law is an ass, and so is the dundee anti social behaviour team
Disillusioned - 3-Jan-19 @ 7:16 PM
Our neighbours are malicious and driven by hate and envy. They had us arrested for assaulting them, when it was us who were directly physically attacked by them. The police took their word for what happened on a piece of crappy phone footage. We were kept in a cell for 24 hours released and now face a court case and possible eviction from our home. These two little idiots believe their own lies and somehow manage to get the authorities to come down on their side. We are beside ourselves with what may happen, cant sleep or eat properly and have had the worse Christmas ever while these two Neanderthals get off Scot free!!! There is no justice in this world and the lunatics are certainly running the asylum!!!!!
Tenacity rules - 31-Dec-18 @ 4:30 AM
I heard one of my neighbors was evicted I don't know if she left or if it's true Anyway it's none of my business . I don't want to know and this is the honest truth . What I don't like for myself I can't like for others. I suggest she stop joining others to try to humiliatethemselves in the guise of humiliating me I really feel this being should find out the real truth about How she lost her home if this is true and go after them and leave my life immediately . I had nothing to do with her for years before she left or her associates so I am not and was not involved . Nothing means I had already washed my hands of them and did not want to know nothing about their business even up to this day Rumours have it she grassed up on her x boyfriend and many others and is now enlisted in a group to try to humiliate her innocent x neighbors for some time now She and the so called friends left behind have been participating in drilling , spreading lies, pounding and non stop harrassments giving the Neighbor no choice to defend herself For the most part they are trying but is humiliating themselves They stopped low No point reporting to the police everything is leaked I knows her name Also gave her own family problems Gossipers said she told them her boyfriend works for the housing trust. No wonder my life was such a misery. What I don't like for myself I don't like for others. Even if it'san awful person . I want to send a message to this Pearson.I don'twant to know if you work,if you aliveor if you are dead for years now. I live and let live. I suggest you find the truth if it's true what I heard . Please get out of my life . Life and let live Enjoy your vouchers but not on my account. You had thought the other girl should go away from the area until you befriended her No you and your acquaintances should live and let live . If sombody humiliated you Its surely not me Go away and leave my life alone . I really don't mind if you go after the ones whoreally humiliated you all Can't you manage them? Do what you does best? The word of God said you are an evil spirit . We wrestle against spirit and principalities in high places . If you are an evil spirit I know a God that could crush you and your evilspirit inside of you all. I won't mention your name You know who you are Leave me alone.Youhave your own problems to sort out Stop the lies If you can't figure the real reasons shut up Stop the organised harassment !!! LOW Keep writing about dogs ?

I know how everyone feels.I am an older person living with my son, we have lived at our apartment for 10 years.Now we have a new landlord that is mean and abusive though we always pay the rent on time.Our neighbor is friends with landlord and she makes up lies on me to get me into trouble and he believes her and comes after me.I am a Senior Citizen and this has never happened to me, it has gone on for over three years and it is destroying my health and can't sleep.The landlord and this tenant are a nightmare for me and everyone.But, God is watching and he will punish them.And what goes around comes around.This is clear elder abuse on me from these two 60 something year olds, they are downright mean and evil.They try to provoke me, but, I ignored them.I have never met people in my life like them, they enjoy doing harm.And that is evil.God will punish them, but, I refuse to play into their hands.

A good person will always be a good personnobody can't change that It's the mindset Don't matter what othersdo or say about them Again a good person will always be a good person Just don't respond to provocation when when it's brought to your front door in any form . Who agrees ? Years should be for growingnot stuck in childishness Life is hard so if you are helping people ease pressure of lifein some way hey althoughthis is negative And unfair Life is not easyfor nobody as some think,we all dealing with life Just because sombody don't continuously provoke you don't mean life is good for them . Some people kick you if they think you down But youcan't keep a good person down Kick them they will get up So think twice !!! Then you will get more upset cause they get up Is this upset good for you healthi wise? Your game is coming to an end . Shoo fly don't bother me People shoul use your years for growing not stuck in mischief !!!
No you live and let - 4-Nov-18 @ 11:03 AM
My neighbour is spreading malicious lies about me, including that I am being investigated by the police for stalking. I reported this to the police who sent a PCSO to speak to her - my neighbour lied that she had heard other people talking about me. The PCSO told me my neighbour was entitled to speak her opinion about me. I have told the police that no one is talking about me, my neighbour lied to protect herself. The police refuse to help.

A neighbour keep planning evil against me like if they think they are the devil. And they are saying they are having fun. I pity them but at the same time is angry that they have no idea this is not what fun looks like and it's not laughable quite nornally. This shows Satan isa busy one and is keeping them busy To be honest I feel they should forget this jealousy , racism and hatred they openly displayed in bold and get on with their own lives. Focus on their priorities . I am fed up of their unwanted obsession and attention focusing on me. So we do not get on what's the big deal. In an ideal world you go your way and I go mine's. Just leave me alone Know when to stop. If you try to use me as an example you will look weak and like big bulliessince you bring in everyone else because it has already been revealed the housing is part of it. They all attacked me together . I feel so ashamed for them. This is low. They said they are having fun Wish they could really have fun doing something good and not evil.

Maybe this is what having loads of fun looks like . Ongoing !!! racism non stop Not partying, not shopping,not genuine laughter Your confusion can't done Your heart is so heavy Lighten up

How does these type of people manage to convince others who you don't know or who don't know you to turn them against others. How do they get the guts to do it No wonder society is so sick? I really want these same people to write the answers of how you manage to put people one against the other and sleep so well. You are the true devil not the other you are pointing your finger at . I suppose you figure out what sick minds like yours like to hear. So you and the person can't see eye to eyeand everyone is you in your minds eye.One day you will talk to the wrong people who will ask you who are you talking about? That will be the day

Bad management - 15-Jun-18 @ 5:49 PM
The answer is that yourneighborbad spirit cannot stand your good spirit the bad spirits wants to dominate your good spirit in the name of the good spirit. So the bad spirit playing the good spirit is vexation to the good spirit So if allowed to weaken your goodspirit you good spiritcan't be freed. So what to do is a hard thing its called staying strong. Your complaint about yourneighbor is nil youwant to eat of forbidden fruit you can't your spirit is good dear . You are the good spirit so her spirit don't give with youher bad spirit. It will take you a long time to figure all this bad spirits are let lose around you causing vextation to yourgood spirit they are many that cause vextation to The only answerfor you is to try and stay strong. Can't you see God loves you. Conquering the lion of the tribe of Judah.

After a while I realised I was dealing with the highest level of witchcraft . After the apology so I picked up my bible . The society is riddled with witchcraft. Why the force apology and the very next daythey continued their antisocial behaviour. They were told that they should not apologised etc.Witchcraft is not only something from Africa its all around us look with your eyes see how people try to spread their negative around you continually . They do not feel happy and believe you are feeling hapoy. This is their way of hoping you will feel like then. I just got some new neighborsI do hope they are the kind with clean heart . All right thinking people like neighbors they could trust . AndI cansay a lot more. I hate ongoing confusionnot everyone like never ending confusion.Ifneighbors cannot get on how will hate ends . If law and order is not uphold who will trust who.Food for thought. Whsts wrong about writing the truth?Everyone is controlled maybe they really wanted peace who knows. When last you were allowed to useyour own mind freely ?You must have forgotton how good it feels to free your mind and useyour own mind freely. It's a healthy feeling. Give others mind a chance to decide themselves. It's only a matter of time before each of you victims realised what you are dealing with. These people are worshipping Satan and he like them so.If they try to be good Satan will wrestle with them. They can't take it. They does not know how to rebuke him but only how to do his work. Look around your environment any where you arefigure it out.
Wicked witch of D - 1-Apr-18 @ 11:22 PM
Pinky - Your Question:
My neighbour lady often interferes in my personal life.She keeps asking about my place of work, my age, my salary.If she comes to our house she goes inside our rooms, kitchen etc. Actually we have shifted newly so our house is a bit untidy and not segregated. So I heard recently that she keeps telling other neighbours about our house being untidy. But she takes help from us when being needed. I really hate her. I want to avoid her. But the problem is my mother who calls her inside our house whenever she sees her inspite of knowing about her. She tells me not to take it seriously and we should love our neighbours. But I want to avoid her completely. My mother will never understand. Pls give me some advice or tips.

Our Response:
We can't give you advice on how to completely avoid your neighbour as we try advocate a friendly and helpful approach as being the key to a successful relationship. You shouldn't however feel compelled to invite your neighbour into your home frequently if you don't want to. If your mother does this, then that's something you need to address with your mother.
