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.

Loulou - Your Question:
Hi I need some advice.My new neighbours have been in about 5 weeks almost, I understood when you first move in there can be alot of noise obviously. but. They're loud constantly throughout the day (banging, shouting, slamming doors, loud music), my days off work I've been going out the house and not returning till late because I can't cope with the noise. I've started hating being in my house and I love my house.I've been woken up just after 6am every morning by their kids screaming and shouting and banging on the walls and slamming doors, closely followed by the parents shouting and screaming at them back.I work late shifts and it's wearing me down now the lack of sleep. I've taken to trying to sleep on the sofa in the room furthest away from next door and can still hear them through 2 walls. They're not the kind of people who are approachable and I'm scared if I do something will happen to my house or car if that makes sense. I've contacted the council (it's a council property) to make a report but didn't peruse it further. What's the laws on noise before a certain time? I'm worried that if the council come out it's going to be 10x worse but I can't keep up the way it's going either. Need some advice please , I'm desperate

Our Response:
It's environmental health you should contact. The laws on noise usually refer to 11pm throuhg to 7am but other excessive noise that affect your enjoyment of your property will still be investigated.

hi this is in regards to my neighbours washing machine constantly banging on our walls I spoke to environmental health and they said it's a difficult situation as they can not stop her putting her machine on but late at night they could speak to her about that.and that the law does not cover persons who work at night and maybe my husband could change hours he works and he didn't know if a mental health issue should even come into this so still in the same situation it's as if some one is hammering on the wall from morning till night on and off everyday for over the past year now

Hi I'm hoping for some advise re my neighbour,I have had problems many years from them and always reported them ie noise! a year ago I asked her to not put her washing machine on in the night as it's like someone banging a hammer on my wall for hours! She stopped for awhile but it's back again not so much in early hours but 3-4 from 6am till midnight my husband works shifts and son so we get no rest from constant banging from the machine I called council today and even told her my husband has just been diagnosed with bipolar and had been sectioned a few months ago she seems to think there is nothing there can do as she has to use her washing machine any advice would be grateful I just don't know what to do.

What have the council said? Was it environmental health you spoke to?

Amz - Your Question:
Hi everyone I was wondering if you could help. I live in a reasonable quiet street, our neighbours a few doors down keep putting in complaints about my barking puppy. Now my pup only barks when there’s stuff going on, such as the kids jumping on the trampolines, the screaming kids next door and the odd bird that’s comes into the garden (which is not often) but each time I bring the pup in. Where do I stand, it’s been 30c and it’s got to the point where our dog is not even allowed to go out because the minute he goes out we get another letter through the door (even when it’s not even him barking). We have spoken to the neighbours and they just don’t care. What do I do?

Our Response:
It's worth asking a dog trainer for advice on how you can prevent this. See also, our guide on curbing dog barking

Larry - 31-Jul-18 @ 2:12 AM
Bob0404....from your post, my understanding is that you own the flat & the noisy neighbours are your tenants. Is that right? If so, surely there's a tenancy agreement clause regarding 'quiet enjoyment of the rental property'.Usually taken to mean that, outside of periodic property inspections/allowing access for repairs & maintenance (given reasonable prior notice where possible), etc THEY benefit from that clause when adhering to stipulations outlined in the tenancy agreement. However, I'm sure it could be legally considered & presented that they are breaking that clause as they aren't 'quiet'. Additionally, if they have an assured shorthold tenancy....can you stick it out until the end, give them appropriate, legal minimum notice & not renew the tenancy? If it's your property, and the agreement has reached expiry you have no obligation to renew the contract, offer an explanation or allow them to stay. If it's not your property, I've just wasted my time! Either way, I hope it works out for you. Noisy neighbours are difficult.
LenniH - 28-Jul-18 @ 5:39 AM
@Bob0404 Hi Bob Not sure where you live, but I'd try contacting the local council. Ask them about noise officers / noise police. They're not real police, they wear plain clothes and unmarked vehicles. They first arrive to your flat, measure the noise level in your flat and if it exceeds the acceptable level they go to the neighbour and ask to turn it down. After this repeats maybe a couple of times they can take further action (e.g. letter to housing association, informing the police, etc.). You must check what hours they work though. Could be e.g. 5pm till 4am etc. All the best!

Hi! We've just recently moved to a flat and we live on the top floor. Our neighbor downstairs complained twice already about the small heater that we have saying that they could not sleep due to the sound it makes which is very minimal. What should we do?
Anonymous - 26-Jun-18 @ 12:37 AM
Hi - wonder if anyone can give me some advice. I have tenants that live above the me in the flat i own and are the nosiest neighbors i have ever experienced living in flats. There is a soundproofing issue as its a converted house but that being said it was never as bad with the previous tenants. With them it was only the bedroom that was an issue and i have had that ceiling soundproofed now which has made a difference BUT now since i have sorted that issue they have decided to start playing their music constantly at full volume ALL day. 6 hours at a time, relentlessly.Yesterday i lost my temper with it all and called the police who were actually really quiet obnoxious about the situation. Said that they had spoke to the tenants and they had demonstrated the volume the music was at (they had turned it off as the saw the police approach) clearly they didn't no do this honestly and played it way lower than it had actually been, so the police were like nothing we can do people are entitled to play music in their flat. But surely I am also entitled to be able to eat my breakfast without listening to their constant music? And i dint just call the police first, i have spoken to the tenants before around the noise above my bedroom in the early hours of the morning and their response was 'its not us must be someone else' we are at the end of the block and their is literally no other building anywhere near us to be creating the noise! I am honestly at a lose at what to do? Its like i have no rights at all in my own home. They have ripped my door bell off the wall outside, rang my door bell at 4.30 AM and deliberately jumped up and down on the floor above mybedroom numerous times, usually at around 1 AM on a Monday morning and it seems i just need to sit here and be bullied by them? Every time I have previously tried to talk to them I am told that I am making their life hell etc etc which is actual lies given i haven't spoken to them at all in anyway since September 2017.I have just ignored the noise as best as i can. Has anyone had similar experience of neighbors like this? The situation is now just making me ill. I never have a minute in my own home where it is not being invaded by them!!!
Bob0404 - 29-May-18 @ 10:07 AM
I have an autistic child . we live upstairs now for a few years. My child is bouncy and jumpy and have insomnia. Most of the neighborhood smoke cigarettes and our apartment always have second hand smoke which makes my child more jumpy because she is choking from cigarettes. I keep a fan in her room window all day and night so it's cold in my home and my kid is six yr old so she cold also makes her jumpy. Can't turn on the heat makes it more stinky and in breathable. At this point we don't sleep lady downstairs beats on walls and my front door in a rage as if she wants to fight. I refuse to talk to ignorant people. I talk to security or front office about this issue . I work 18 hrs and sleep 4 hrs if I'm lucky. My kid is a lot of work. I'm not about to hood my kid down to be quite that's abuse and I'm not going to tippy toe when she let her dog bark for hours every day and smoke cigarettes like a chain smoker got us in our place dying for fresh air. I've lived downstairs on the same property for 11 years never did complain about the kid jumping all night and day it's what kids do. Especially if your kid is disabled.

Bubbles - 12-Apr-18 @ 4:56 PM
Writing on behalf of my mother. She moved into her new flat last summer, it’s a council property because my dad was terminally ill, and has now passed, and my mother and brother are both disabled so unable to work. Their upstairs neighbor has done nothing but cause them grief. We have lost three immediate family members, and my mom has already felt the full brunt of that. The neighbors are aware that we have been going through hard times but they don’t seem to care. A couple weeks before my dad passed they walked in without knocking and tried to sell stolen goods! Obviously with my dad dying they didn’t want to report it and endanger themselves even further soy mother stuck her head down. They fight and scream at eachother all night, you can hear them being physically violent towards eachother... the girl their is (diagnosed) bipolar and absolutely unapproachable now. She stomps and screams and smashes about. It’s keeping my mother awake all night every night and we are not sure what to do anymore... tried speaking to them and contacted police and council, they just ask that it continues to be reported. They are fully aware of how bad it is, having heard their daylight noise! Is their anything else we can do? My mother is now at breaking point and struggling to cope.

Kozmo - Your Question:
Next door, (semi detached) is private rent, it seems that I get a different neighbour every year, most have been fairly decent, I've only had one issue with excessive noise, that went as far as a second warning letter from the council, then they disappeared, now onto the new lot I've been round a couple of times to ask them to turn down music which was the wrong side of loud, when they did finally answered the door, I asked politely to turn it down as I had to up at 3am to go to work, this was 9pm to be fair they did and it's been pretty much music free since, I took the opportunity to explain that the houses weren't particularly soundproof, and that I could hear mostly everything, they don't seem to have taken much notice of this as they shout at each other rather than talk and slam doors everytime they exit or enter the room, now is this classed as a nuisance under noise laws or would the council only concider this as living noise? It has effected my enjoyment of my house, having to turn the tv up, I've had to buy wireless headphones as the volume on iPad only goes up so far, I listen to radio quite a bit, using earplugs at night a lot more, I'm sure I'm getting an ear infection, it seems that I return from work and just wait for the loud conversations to start

Our Response:
It's worth asking the council (environmental heath) but they will not usually consider family noise outside of anti social hours (11pm to 7am) as a noise issue. It may also be worth getting in touch with their landlord to see if additional soundproofing can be fitted etc.

I mentioned to parents but they do not seem to bother. Plz help I am so stressed

Our Response:
You should speak to the neighbours first of all. If you're not happy speaking to them try dropping the a note ormore formal letter. Our letter templates should help

Hi. I am a student and I have rented a house with my 3 other housemates since September last year. Our neighbours bellows us play music all day everyday, all night every night. It's so loud that I can feel the vibrations from the beat from the second floor of our house! I haven't spoken to them yet, mainly because I'm a coward and they seem like the type to react badly to me if I do say something. Of course I could be just paranoid about that. I don't if I should just work up the courage to ask them to be a bit more considerate as I have deadlines and my dissertation to write. Their music is both preventing me from doing my work in the house, and from sleeping!
Anonymous - 1-Mar-18 @ 11:54 PM
Reading some of these stories makes me feel a bit silly complaining about my neighbour in comparison but since I feel I'm somewhat at my wits end with him ill share it anyway. I suffer asperges, anxietyand depression I've always tried to be a nice neighbour the man next door to me has done nothing but made my life a living hell for nearly 2 years. When I first moved in I accidentally let about honestly a bucket of water in his garden (long story involving a broken swimming pool) the fence sunk slightly me and my bf apologised profusely he wasn't happy we took it with a pinch of salt even when he threatened to get a solicitor onto us and he made me cry, other than that he stands outside the front of his house smoking which I don't care about but if he's out there I won't step outside because he'll either give me or my bf funny looks or say something really rude, last year he complained about our fence and threatened me that he was going to take my landlord to small claims court over it when its not my fault that my landlord is stingy with money nonetheless we put up new fence paid for out of our own pocket everything was fine for a while then he started complaining about our cats using his flower beds for a toilet he confronted me over it one night I didn't know what to say because I assumed they used a litter tray same as before then over the course of 4 months he dumped their turds on our doorstep even though I provided him with cat repellent powder, put their litter tray outside to use the toilet, tried to make a hole in the ground as a toilet in the garden and have shut the cat flap numerous times to keep them in at night (I don't do it anymore it's cruel) still it persisted until a mate of mine told him to stop sometime after she had words he started blasting bass music through the walls it was so heavy and vibrating you couldn't watch tv and I can't relax knowing someone's playing music like that next door I wouldn't mind if it was music but it's like a rave, our neighbour unfortunately is a severe alcoholic so reasoning with him or hoping he sees logic in anything has never really been an option. On top of all that we've had fallings out with half the idiots in our street over the pettiest problems, parking, garages someone even lied and said I was letting my garden fill up with rubbish just to get back at us. I'm hoping to move this summer once my bf gets some money. You'd think living in a nicer area would mean nicer people but unfortunately thats not always the case.
Rach - 7-Feb-18 @ 2:42 AM
I am so glad I have found other people who feel my pain. For a while i genuinely thought i was going insane. There is literally nothing worse than noisy neighbours. The problem I have is 'general noise' from a heavy guy who lives below me. He slams and bangs everything, walks like he is stomping, so much so that my bed shakes! And of course, he does all this at night. I feel aged from lack of sleep. I have cried and felt depressed at times. I work full time and have a young child and all I want is a good night's sleep! ! So frustrating that people can be so ignorant to others
Anna123 - 25-Jan-18 @ 11:39 PM
My neighbour has the biggest mouth i have ever heard. You can hear him when hes on the phone and our tv is on. First of all it was the tv being really loud ( we couldnt even hear ours). So my mum went over and confronted him and they had a bit if a disagreement. Now he lets his kids run up and down on wooden floors and their bedroom is next to mine and they are screaming and bouncy round the room at 11 at night. Its getting ridiculous now. When we ask him to keep the noise down he does for about a month and then it starts again. Help!

Hi there I live in a top flat in a four in a block and have had my bottom neighbours downstairs from me since last year.I have been in my flat just over 2 years and they just have been in there just over a year. Everything was fine when they moved in but now they are dead noisy, slamming doors constantly, and stomping about like elephants it all happens at nighttime when i am going to my bed as they sleep all day and are up all night. I live by myself and they are a couple. I am at my wits end with them. I am with a housing association and they are with the council so they cant do anything about it. What can I do? I have tried talking to them but they just ignore me. Please help thanks

Tttt42 - Your Question:
We have a neighbour who has their tv on at night from 10pm-1pm. The tv is next to our bedroom wall and we can constantly hear what’s being said on the tv and the constant mumble of the tv is not allowing us to sleep until they turn it off, what’s the best action we can take?ThanksTom

Our Response:
Firstly talk to the neighbour, they may not realise the problems they are causing. If you're not happy talking to them you can drop them a note or a letter - you can use our template here. If that doesn't improve things, then contact your environmental health department.

My upstairs neighbours r brutal. Kids running around on wooden floors, the parents arguing really loudly in front of their kids. I have an autistic daughter who is really suffering with the noise. I need help asap please.
Paula - 23-Jul-17 @ 8:18 PM
Both neighbours on either side of our house are noisy. Left side has 2 dogs who bark constantly. When they go off to work, they leave the 2 dogs locked upstairs in a bedroom. They start howling, then barking, scratching at the door and eventually banging at it. I work from home so I have to put up with it all day. When the owners do eventually come home, the dogs go out in the garden and yap non stop until they let them back in. I have complained to them about the noise, so has their neighbours on the other side but they seem to thing that dogs just do that. On the right side our neighbours have 3 kids under 5 that they can't control. Everyone is screaming in that house 24/7. They're always shouting. I understand that toddlers don't know how loud they are, but the parents scream and shout a lot more than their kids, especially in the garden. The adults constantly whine and whinge while the kids are trying to play. Thankfully they only go out in the garden for about a minute at a time before they're back inside arguing, but they seem to be getting worse as the kids get older. The shouting starts at 5:30am every morning and it doesn't stop until around 10-11pm when they eventually go to bed. I used to love working from home, but now it's driving me insane. We have confronted the baby factory next door about the noise and we fell out with her over it. We politely asked if they could keep the noise down a little and she accused us of being bullies telling us that her kids only form of communication is crying. It's not the crying that bothers us it's her yelling non stop. Last year we had our roof redone, the tiling took about 3 days. Our builders worked during the day while everyone was out of the house 10am to 2pm, they were very tidy and respectful of our neighbours properties. When the job was finished, we were standing on the drive talking to the builders, when neighbour with the dogs decided to come out and have a go at us. She said 'if I were a bloke she would knock me out' because I smiled when she complained about the noise of the builders. She was home for 1 hour while they were clearing away some rubble. Her dogs bark all day every day. She's such a hypocrite. I've never had such selfish neighbours in all my life. Other than moving, I have no idea what to do.
