Dealing with Noisy Neighbours

Dealing With Noisy Neighbours

Some of us will have had to deal with noisy neighbours at one time or another. Often, this might be simply because of the types of personality they have and not because they want to be disruptive.

Remember, we’re not all the same ‘types’ of people. You might prefer the quiet life or you’d much rather enjoy doing all of your socialising down at the pub. Others, however, might enjoy socialising at home and having parties, they might be DIY enthusiasts, or have a small tribe of children and we’re all aware of how much noise a group of kids can generate.

The problems arise when the noise becomes excessive and it can escalate even further over time if ignored. It can cause stress to those it affects as well as inflicting sleepless nights and can, in effect, completely ruin your enjoyment of your own life in your own home. However, you might be surprised to discover that many people who are considered ‘noisy’ and disruptive are often totally unaware of the effects they are having on others, and a simple polite conversation will often resolve the issue.

Speaking to your Neighbour First

No one should have to tolerate Excessive Noise Pollution, but it's not very neighbouring if you immediately call the police or your local Environmental Health Department at the first sign of any loud noise. Many noisy neighbours might consider this to be a bit like ‘going behind their back’ instead of speaking to them first and, if a complaint is made anonymously, it can often cause an even deeper sense of resentment. They may then become suspicious of everybody in their immediate neighbourhood, and their mistrust can sometimes lead to them becoming even more disruptive.

That doesn’t mean you, as the person under sufferance, should have to put up with their behaviour, but talking to them first about the situation can often nip in the bud a potential long-term noise problem. What is important, however, is the way in which you choose to speak to them and, quite often, the timing.

Choosing the Right Moment

Even if you’ve been tearing your hair out, it’s important that when you go to speak to your neighbour, you stay calm and remain polite. Simply point out to them what effects their behaviour has had on you and your family. You can be firm and get your point across in a polite manner. Most neighbours should be reasonable enough to understand and to take your views on board which should keep things harmonious between you, and also should ensure that they do not repeat the same mistake again.

If you’ve hardly spoken to them previously, you’ll naturally feel a little apprehensive about doing this, but it’s usually the best solution and stops the problem from escalating. However, the other crucial issue is the timing and not simply what you say and how you say it. A house party is a good example.

The Right Timing

If a party is in full swing yet the noise is excessive, it’ll be no doubt very tempting to go and confront your neighbours there and then. The best advice would be to leave it until the following day, as they may have had a few drinks too many and be right in the party spirit. So, if you confront them when the party’s in full flow, they may simply see you as a ‘killjoy’ and/or will simply not be in the frame of mind to give any thought to how their behaviour is affecting you. So, whether it’s a party or a DIY project that’s giving you grief, you’re much more likely to get your points across and produce the desired result if you wait a day or so.

The fact is that most excessive noise problems with neighbours can often be better resolved between neighbours themselves. Sometimes it’s even more effective if a few neighbours who have been affected go round together and state their case, as nobody likes to feel a social outcast within their own neighbourhood.

This all said, however, there may be several reasons why you might not wish to have a chat with your neighbour first to try to resolve matters. Perhaps they are renowned for making people’s lives difficult, or they might want to provoke you into a confrontation that might get out of hand. So, it may be a ‘judgement call’ depending upon the ‘personalities’ involved.

However, no one has the legal right to make someone else’s life a misery through excessive noise, so don't feel guilty about Contacting Your Local Environmental Health Department or even the police, if you strongly suspect that by confronting the issue directly yourself, you could be putting yourself at risk of harm in any way.

My neighbors moved in April 2019. I believe they are under housing associations as my previous neighbor. I bought my house 10 years ago and never had a problem. Since they moved in they will have showers after 11pm sometimes during summer holidays even at 2am! The walls are so thin that you even hear when they cough or clean the bathroom tiles! I go to sleep around 10pm as I wake up early for work and kids for school. One day after work I went to speak to them and they wife just boded. It was quiet for couple of days then they went back to the routine. I’m so so’s tired having sleepless night cos of the late showers, stumping on the stairs, banging the doors! I don’t really mind what they do during the day but the evenings are really annoying! I don’t want to be in a war zone with them but I just don’t know how to approach them again if they didn’t listen at the first place. I know council can’t do anything with it as due to poor isolation between the walls but it’s just getting too much!

Just moved to a nice little housing association property, the police helped us get this move due to previous anti-social behavior where we lived previously.Unfortunately we have a 35 year old living next door to us whom is out at work all day, but lets his front bedroom out to two of his friends who are noisy as hell.They bang every single door in the house,they are like elephants up and down the stairs, they put they dog in the yard and leave him there barking his head off from 9.30 onward (evening)We approached our neighbor as he seemed friendly, approachable and helpful.Where we wrong!! His tenant was abusive and threatening to me and the neighbor who rents the house just stood there and said or did nothing. Now they deliberately make noise and we hear them laugh about it.Told the housing association who sent a bit of a kid out to speak to us... nothing was done except to call the neighbor in for a chat with them.They are still noisy and stomp around and slam doors. Solicitors don't want to know unless there is money in it for them.What do we do now my husband is 71 and I am 56 and have Mental health issues it is really affecting me badly.The housing association wants me to keep a recording them when they make a noise, but it's difficult to do ad they may make short bursts of noise!Not everyone stands there slamming their doors 3 or 4 times, so recording them is difficult. What can we do nextThe housing association says he cannot have anybody living there with him but these people are.Now they are aware and the housing association has told this Tennant they cant live there what they do is come home at around 10.30 am and they band around giggling and laughing waking me up.It was 2 am last night they woke me.They park their car around the corner to make us believe they are not there but we hear them!!I only see one way out for myself as I cannot live like this with these nasty people, they know what they are doing and don't care they run rings around the housing association whom are as thick as two short planks.

Hi, I sympathize and empathize with commenters.I have had the same experiences.I have come to the conclusion that the best approach is to 'love thy neighbour as thyself' (Mark 12:31) and 'pray for your enemies' (Matthew 5:44)..

I live in a ground floor flat and the upstairs neighbours are making my life hell with constant banging, talking and running and jumping across all of the floors. i recorded the noise via the noise app on my phone for 2 weeks and sent it to the council. they sent them a letter and visited them following this and the evenings were really quiet for the first 4 weeks after but they are back to their old ways again. My dad tried talking to him as he completely ignores me and he said he would keep the noise down but to no avail. I only moved in this time last year from a house that i was having problems in and my parents have spent so much money on my flat as it had to be done from top to bottom and they bought me new furniture. I have more or less been told if it came to it i would have to be the one to move out but why should i when there are two people with a young son in a one bedroomed upstairs flat with no garden for him. My mental health problems have gotten ten times worse since living below these neighbours and i fear i soon will be commiting suicide as my only way out as i dont know how to cope anymore. I listen to music through my ear plugs and try to busy myself with things but that issues with them is always at the forefront of my mind. I am on edge constantly and continuely looking out the windows.She has her sister stay at weekends and sunday nights and monday nights seem to be at their worst. The police visited me becuse of suicide attempt but said they cant do anything about the noise. The doctor is now writing a letter to the council and the police have put a report in but apart from the council wanting us to have mediation they dont seem to want to do much else about them but would seem happy for me to move out and i have done nothing wrong. I am posting this because i am desperate and me taking my life seems like my only way out now. What else am i meant to do apart from all the above? I am thinking of running away.

We’ve lived in our end terraced house now for 6 years. Our neighbours would play music every weekend and have people round. The young boy that lives there would run all over our garden, peep though out window and scream at us while we ate dinner or watched TV. We asked the neighbours so many times to turn the music down or to stop the boy from running in our garden and all she said was “sorry didn’t know”. Eventually we had to keep calling noise control out and they music stopped. Apparently the boy is disabled - what kind of disability I don’t know. But still he shouldn’t be allowed to run on peoples gardens and scream at people every day, his mom wouldn’t even know where he was as she’d be out in the garden getting high/drunk. Eventually the parties stopped. Now however instead of music every weekend, it’s banging - ALL DAY! And I mean all day. I don’t know what the heck they are doing in that house but someone keeps slamming their feet up and down the stairs and banging doors. They do this during the night as well. Me and my husband have been woken up at 3am from them banging. We’ve asked them to keep it down and again the reason given was that the son can't help it. Now I work with SEN kids and my mom is disabled so I understand it can be difficult. But if her son does have difficulties then she should be looking after him, not still getting high and drunk and letting him do whatever he wants. - bit of a rant I know - what can I do about this excessive banging? I want to report the drinking and drug use and get social services involved but I really don’t want the backlash of it all. They’re rough people.

I posted on the 11th of Aug that I've just been transferred due to noisy neighbours and that I was anxious of what noises awaited in knew place! I knew early on before the actual move the sound insulation was non existent (flats are 12 years old) but I'd already signed tenancy so had to just hope it was ok and have faith the housing wouldn't put me somewhere that was going to be worse well the neighbours who live above me have made their presence known my God the noise is horrendous! They're doing work to the flat which makes the noise worse but just general walking about I can hear my ceiling banging and creaking loudly not the neighbours fault this time it's the cheap building! Ironically I actually heard less in my old flat and I was moved due to excessive noisy neighbours ( noise was random times day and night) I don't know what to do other people in the buildings cope fine dont know if it's just because of previous experience. I can't stay here the point of move was to improve mental health and wellbeing but things have got worse :-( dont know what to do.

I moved into a council ground floor flat 6 months ago and have been plagued by noise from three neighbours. Kept awake at night by the person in the flat above me stomping about and making banging noises. The flat above the flat above me has a lady with two kids. one kid is under 4 and can run up and down on the floor for hours in the day and early evening..bang bang bang bang bang is the sound I hear in my flat. Another neighbour is a drug addict and drug dealer and constant loud slamming of doors. Ive had enough and my nerves are shredded. The council wont let me do an exchange for another 3 months because of my introductory tenancy. The noise has badly affected my peace of mind. Apparently the flats were built in the 1970s will little or no soundproofing.

Ive an elderly lady lives below me in a flat. She once stopped me and said are you aware i can hear water coming down when you take a shower!!! My first thought was well i cant exactly make it go up!!! Every single move i make this woman moans about it. Im a good tenant. Im out a lot of the day and when i return i love to settle down and read. Yet this woman has her tv top volume and is no saint at all. Banging lots and shouting out her front door to her darn sister over the road. Cant she use a mobile phone or use her legs to walk those few steps. She was outside hanging her washing in her underwear one day shouting at a bird for making a noise!!! Nightmare neighbour. Ive been through way too much misery due to bad people since i moved. :-(

We bought our home nearly 2 years ago now. The buyers lied to us about which neighbour they had a dispute about. Our neighbours the other end are awful, now come to light these are the neighbours the buyer had problems with. The noise is excessive, banging and screaming from 5.30 every morning which can last all day. The mother swearing and screaming at her son most of the day. We have him knocking on our door and trying to get into our car when we go out. As a quiet family ourselves this is very difficult especially when our 2 and a half year old is hearing and seeing all of this. We've spoken to the mother once we apologised yet it's continued. Every morning at 5.30 he begins banging. Both the mother and son have additional needs. We're going to contact our local council however is there anything else we can do?

It's 1-30am and again I'm sitting in my living room having been woken up by my neighbours kids running around their landing sounds just like it's going on in my house. To top it all the parents are up till the early hours so noone gets up till 11 at the earliest. This goes on every night I go to bed then I'm woken up ,I've knocked their door many times but it makes no difference apart from this the kids run across my front garden picking the flowers leaving litter even peering through my windows ,I don't know which way to turn . really tired and fed up!!

I live in a flat in Milton Keynes and I am bombarded daily with what seems to be door slamming, knocking on the wall and heavy footfall (like someone is stamping their feet while running/jogging). The neighbours even seem to stand by their window and start talking loudly so it penetrates my living room or bedroom and causes a disturbance. Interestingly the sounds can be heard in every single room so there is no way to escape it (I almost convinced myself I was being haunted by a poltergeist !!). I have spoken to my neighbours but it led to nothing and the noises continued. Like other people on this site have mentioned, it can affect my sleep badly and has a seriously detrimental affect on my wellbeing. I have found that using earplugs is an excellent way to reduce the impact from this environmental noise. Especially with sleep. I would recommend to anyone else who is also experiencing these problems to grab yourself some. You can get wax earplugs from most chemists, and industrial foam earplugs from most hardware stores ( I bought a pack of 50 from Screwfix ).

I've just been transferred by my housing association due to noise from my upstairs neighbour. It was a delicate situation as the noise was due to a child with severe behaviour problems we were sympathetic to the situation but it made our lives hell! Felt terrible for complaining but had to think of mine and daughters health Coming home from work not being able to relax, my own young daughter stressed incase she can't sleep or gets woke up which happened often. Sometimes they were ok but by that point our nerves were that shattered we constantly anticipated noise. There was also a few episodes of anti social behaviour this is when the housing decided to move us. I've just moved into a first floor flat been assured by my housing I wont have issues here but I'm anxious as hell. I was going to hold out for a top floor flat but what they offered was stunning so had to take it. However now in it I've realised there is zero soundproofing. The person above me has not been in since I moved here so no idea what sounds await but right now can hear clear as day the child 2 floors above me bouncing about! (Its 10.30pm :-() my nerves are shot. Doc thinks it's some sorta PTSD. Builders/ councils really need to look at better soundproofing as the affect noise has on your health is dangerous! Starting to think I'm no longer cut out for flat living.

New neighbours at number 1 a few months ago and at number 8 last week. I live in a block of 8 flats, I am number 7 right at the top (3 flights of stairs). Number has recently been having parties every other day probably due to the nice weather, music very loud but I can hardly hear it from my flat, I know numbers 2,3 and 4 must be going stir-crazy, feel really sorry for them but was glad it wasn't me! Then last week new neighbours at number 8 directly across from me. They are not noisy neighbours so to speak but almost every night at around 2.30am the young man opens the stop cocks cupboard and this is waking me up and I cannot get back to sleep. The cupboard is right next to my flat front door and any sound in the corridors is really loud. I am baffled as to why he needs to open this cupboard at all?? I have lived here for 13 years and have only opened it twice in all that time! It's only for emergencies when you may need to turn your water stop cock off so I cannot understand why he keeps opening this cupboard and at exactly 2.30am as well, does anybody want to offer an explanation?Jonathan Creek would struggle with this one haha! ??

I've lived in my detached house happily for 26 years, until a year ago the next door neighbours got themselves a loud barking dog, barking it's head off daily starting by waking me outside my bedroom. On top of this their 2 external doors, both outside my bedroom and living areas if my house, they slam shut up to 15 times a day, coming and going and letting the dog in and out. The main noise now, is not as much the dog, but them slamming these doors waking me day in day out. The council have been involved also the police, but these neighbours put on a caring front that they will adjust their doors, and they are trying their best, when they clearly don't. I am now thinking about getting cctv, purely to record their behaviour, I am 72 and was so looking forward to my retirement, but it's a living torture due to these couldn't care less neighbour.

Reply to Kay Jan 2019. Having faced directly the inept and incompetency of the EH understand the complaint when investigating Low Frequency Noise. Since late 2017 DEFRA have published new guidelines written by Professor Moorhouse, Salford University for Environmental Health when identifying LFN caused by external forces such as White Appliances, Central Heating and other mechanical devices. This actually reverses their initial techniques and regulations when communicating to people affected by LFN and vibrations. Firstly Tinnitus which the EH attempt to blame DOESN'T affect the ability to identify Low Frequency Noise and Vibrations, in fact studies show the opposite.Thus the guidelines were updated that a check up is not needed. Secondly the Environmental Health have to correctly calibrate their equipment C weighted to identify any low frequency noise below 50hz. Unfortunately their sound equipment is ill equipped to identify or register infrasound, thus the problem when identifying the source. Also many speakers or headgear have issues or unable to playback infrasound. Thus the difficulty of the officers replicating and identifying the sound and vibrations! Thirdly the government and local councils have updated the rules when interpreting building materials in flats and housing that could affect the transference and extrapolation of noise. There are guidelines on how low frequency noise can be transferred by laminated flooring. Hope this helps yourself or others fighting against LFN and vibrations. As currently I've seen or read hundreds of complaints, but not one successful prosecution or cease and desist.

My neighbours clearly have an issue with volume control, several of them would make great town criers, they really are that loud.As children learn from what they observe, these people are raising loud children with no consideration for other neighbours.The loud children will grow up to be loud parents & so it goes on. Next door neighbour installed a monster trampoline so squealing, shouting, crying starts in earnest about 3:30 when the 3 young children return from school & continues all evening, I have never once heard the parent asking them to quieten down, even when the noise is earsplitting. When they're back indoors the tantrums proceed as the kids want to be outside on their trampoline. So, tantrums & screaming continue sometimes until the early hours, with banging against the walls that causes my pictures to vibrate & rattle against the walls, it's really affected my sleep & mental health. Property management agency who manage the estate & local council don't seem to want to help, even though there is a clause within the agreement of all residents that anything that causes a nuisance or annoyance is not allowed. Unfortunately my only solution is to move as I can't live with this continuous cacophony of noise and the most annoying thing is that a little consideration could really solve the issue but I have never once heard a parent asking their child to quieten down, not once,unfortunately consideration is in very short supply in my area......

My next door neighbours’ teenage daughter is often left home on her own overnight, and whenever she is she has a party.These parties obviously include loud music, underage drinking and very often smoking illegal substances, and there is no adult supervision.I have asked them to keep the noise down to a more acceptable level, which they do for around an hour, then it’s turned back up.I have a heart condition and when the parties are taking place my heart rate and stress levels reach dangerous levels.....What can I do, should I call the police, an ambulance? Please help!!
