Protection from Harassment

Harassment Laws Neighbours Police Victim

Nobody has to suffer persecution or harassment from their neighbours, no matter what has motivated the perpetrator to do this to you in the first place, and you are protected by the law in this regard. Some instances of harassment arise as a result of a dispute between neighbours which has escalated out of control.

Sometimes it’s down to anti-social behaviour by irresponsible youths, other times it may be due to a long-running dispute with a neighbour. Your harassment may be motivated by perceived differences between you and the rest of your neighbourhood by a neighbour(s) and these are usually of a Discriminatory Nature which is dealt with in another article contained on this website.

What Constitutes Harassment?

Harassment can occur in many forms. It's described as 'causing alarm or distress' and also as 'putting people in fear of violence'. It can include, but is not limited to, the following types of behaviour:

  • Threats of violence against you or an actual act of violence committed upon you
  • Abusive and/or insulting behaviour or words
  • Threats of damage to your property and possessions or actual damage to them
  • Any written form of abuse or threat made to you, including letters, graffiti or any other kind of written material such as posters being put up that are derogatory towards you

Basically, harassment can be any type of behaviour or action taken towards you which threatens your own sense of security and peace or which causes you unnecessary inconvenience. For more detailed information surrounding harssment and the laws governing it take a look at www.cps.gov.uk

What You Can Do if You Become a Victim of Harassment

If you feel that you are being harassed, you should immediately notify the police. It’s also useful if you have Kept Written Records of all the occasions when any harassment has took place, including what form of harassment you suffered, the date and time it took place, and a name or description of the perpetrator(s). Even if you haven’t gathered all of this information or you don’t know who might be responsible, just give the police as much information as you can.

The more you can tell them, the quicker and easier it will be to get the harassment to stop and to instigate any legal proceedings that might be necessary. Once you have been interviewed by the police, they will be on hand to offer you any advice while they conduct their investigations.

What Happens Next?

The police take harassment issues very seriously. They will be there to support you although the level will vary depending upon the severity of the harassment which has taken place. They will also offer you all the required information and guidance you might need if the matter goes to court. Depending on the nature of the harassment, they’ll also put you in touch with relevant external organisations or agencies that will be able to give you specialised support and further counselling assistance, if needed.

If You Live in Rented Accommodation

If you live in rented accommodation, you should also inform your landlord, local authority or housing association. They can offer additional support which might include fitting locks, vandal-proof letterboxes, fences and lighting, and installing alarms which might even be linked to your local police station. If your perpetrator lives in the same building as you, they can also confront them and warn them about possible tenancy agreement breaches, and the possibility of eviction.

In the case of local authorities and housing associations, they might also be able to assist in re-housing you elsewhere if that’s the decision you feel would be best for you. However, if you like living in your present home, you should feel under no compulsion to move, and your local authority will take all the necessary steps and offer you the support to enable you to remain put. Nobody should ever feel compelled to be driven out of their home and neighbourhood against their wishes because of a harassment issue.

Harassment is a serious offence, can cause unbearable stress and will be dealt with harshly by the Police and the Legal System.

The police were absolutely useless for me. I have autism and my neighbours knew this and targeted me with loud noise which obviously distresses me. Banging on my fire door, making loads of weird noises, shouting literally right outside (to the point where they could touch it) my bedroom window at 3am in the morning multiple times. Stomping outside my property, whistling at me to the point where I am now prescribed medication for schizophrenia and being forced to look into moving. I called the police out and my neighbours said they were just being a little loud so the police just referred me to the council. They then proceeded to mock me at night outside my windows for calling the police out. Safe to say, I believe what I suffered is a form of harrasment and my opinion of the police has forever been tarnished.

House to steal our dog most nights she's constantly walking around on my drive and all police do is tell me to stay away from her she. Never seems to get arrested I just wondered where. I stand with this as I feel police are useless

Hi, we just moved in a new flat five days ago, me, my husband and my two sons, 2 year old and 5 year old. We already had three complaints from the neighbors downstairs about mychildren and their running. They are asleep by 8 pm and all day school/nursery until 4 . They are two healthy, normal children who sometimes run, but it's within decent hours and the running lasts for 5 min.Last night they danced for 5 min and the neighbor came. He threatened me thathe has recordings and he will take the issue further. The problem is that I don't feel safe and comfortable in my own home, I don't let me children play anymore anymore, they can't sing or dance. what can I do? he will probably come and harassme every day.

My female neighbour who used to be my close friend and like a second mother to me suddenly starts to impute me in actions what I have not done. Usually those are messages or handwritten notes thrown through mail hole in door. Begins with allegations about littering into her garden any possible waste etc when the same days was extremely big whirlwind which not only broke trees etc but also overturned and scattered all over the city all possible bins. But she stayed on her version. Then after behaved like nothing happened and that she didn't done any mental distress to me when I was needed to jump out of my sanity to prove my innocents because she was threatening me with involving Environmental Health Agencies and even police to take actions against me and my family. Of course I was and always will be scared from such a powerful instances, never ever wanted or caused to do something what could cause any attention to me. Because, yes, I'm struggling with a Social Anxiety and Panic Attacks caused by emotional and physical abuse throughout my entire life. Always have had a grange dreads from becoming punished for things I have not done, but no one believed even if all evidences pleaded guilty is somebody else. So I'm just living my life isolated from society thereby not provoking any kind of attention. Then after she start sending me messages where she was incriminating my underaged sons for antisocial behaviours against her and her property. Reading out those messages ware really disturbing because of the style how she chose words to convincingly blaming them in horrible things they have done, like using illegal substances together with friends, to whom as well she brought claims, simply because, I think, she is jealous about the fact that I have a family and big friendly circle of young people who are not only friends to my sons but like mine childs as well. But she is alone and lonely with immeasurable addiction to alcohol and interferencing into our neighbourhood lifes, calling to many kind of instances and complaining about different kind of community ongoings and demanding them immediately to act the way she wants. Ludicrously. Again for a while was peace like nothing was happened. I think she is like serial killer who have exigency to satisfy their brain-sick penchants. But why need to create such a demoralised lies against someone without a reason? So like about month ago when she turned out again with sequent accusation again against my children I texted her back simple statement of my vision for all that and blocked her number to avoid of receiving further messages which leaves me anxious and worried about our wellbeing and peace. Even if we are living nearby and sharing one passage way and we can came across each other anytime. And today I received a new obloquy, this time handwritten, but this time it looks like straightforwarded menace to handle out devastating consequences for me. Why and what triggers her to commit all thes

I moved into an apartment a few weeks ago. One of the neighbours (whom is one of the building directors) has tried to challenge me for drying clean laundry in my guest bedroom on a laundry airing rack. Because she can see the edge of the rack from one of her apartment windows into my guest bedroom window..... I politely said Thankyou for bringing this to my attention and went on my way. On reflection I felt this was totally outrageous. This neighbour should not be looking in any of my windows in any case!So I rechecked the rules and regulations and lease and there is nothing related to not being able to dry laundry on a rack in your own home. So I continued occasionally to dry my clean laundry on my rack in my guest room. Now I have heard from another director of the building albeit politely,that their is a storm brewing and this neighbour is seeminglytrying to get another neighbour to complain and for-warning that this nosey neighbour will be coming to me in person to deal with this! Clearly this so called director is trying to abuse her so called power against me. I refuse to allow to be treated this way. Director or not. I just want a peaceful life and astonished with this behaviour. I feel that I don’t want to be confronted again with this in person and thinking about legal advice in relation to harassment. Any comments please would be welcome! J

My one nosy neighbour thinks it's okay to harass someone in their own home. They have no life what so ever it seems. They even try to get others involved too,by getting them to callme names and giving me smug dirty looks and saying personal things about me when I'm out and about. They talk lies about me and spread it around town so that others look down upon me.they have been saying that I'm mad. I have no friends ect. I think they have been listening to me threw the walls so that they can get dirt on me as well. They are heartless jealous evil bullys who seem to get pleasure from someone else's torment. I cannot stand them any longer. I hate seeing them ,hearing them and even talking to them.they think they are clever but in actuality they arent.i know it sounds like madness but this reality is real.I even hate walking past their house. I dont want to know anything about them. The bullying from others seemsto happen more when I have been upset,or the next day after they might come out with smiles on their faces andgreet me in front of others to make me seem like themad one. when most of the time they seem miserable alot of the time they are reluctant to even say hello to me. it's only after I have been upset, they bother .they seem get pleasure out of my misery.i try not to say anything in the house no more because of them, because they will use it against me to smear campaign me. Make me look bad ect.

And then I loan them $400 to boot because they have three little girls and they were losing their car I didn't want to see him use your car so they're going to pay me back while a couple months went by after knocking on the door never even going into their home once after getting all the stuff for him we weren't but real close friends but I've been very kind to them and they ended up after me knocking on the door few times going to management as I followed her to management and said I tried to rob her just so she did not have to pay me the money back she owed me and she called the police out and we'll have fun to have me arrested and I explained to them it was about the money she owed me and they told me Sybil to take Symbicort more or less bottom line is is I let go you're a God she was trying to say something about it and then I got upset until you but you are Thief well we could go I put a note on her door asking if she's seeing a package maybe one of her youngest catch it gotten hold of it by accident maybe not know any better carry in her apartment and I left a note asking if she found it or seen it so please just knock on my door all the sudden she came to my door screaming in my face saying I should call them thieves and when I said I already asked the other to Neighbors about it they seem pretty reliable everything pretty they seem like you're telling the truth and she yelled at me cuz cuz we're black well I have no I don't have a racist bone in my body if I had about it never helped her like I did her and her husband and her kids so you screaming at me and my daughter she's 16 came out and asked her to please leave she didn't I daughter stepped a few steps forward towards her and then she stepped through a fort with my daughter and my daughter kind of pushed her back so she raised the neighbor raise your phone up and said I'm calling the police and so increase came out she shouldn't have you arrested so when the priest came out they asked to Spain by the joke your head because I guess you told the police we try to choke her at this point I didn't happen so I I let it go but the next day they went to

I have lived in my flat for 20 years and at first it was fine but then new niebours moved in the flat underneath me..at first they seemed ok but after a while they were having showers at 3 and 4 am and waking me up...I asked the man nicely if he would be quieter but he took offence straight away and said he cant do anything about it as he does shift work and needs to wash before bed..I accepted it reluctantly..it continued to annoy me and after complaining to the council it stopped but now they make a very annoying banging sound for hours sometimes and are just very noisy...this has made my anxiety bad and I already suffer fro. Anxiety and Depression and am on medication for it...the man particularly is a very hostile and aggressive person who has shouted in my face when we spoke about it...it is maki g my life a misery.Even after the council wrote letters and recorded noise it didn't help at all as they are very aware of what is going on...

I can completely relate to the "Herd Mentality" victim and the woman with the bass thudding neighbour. Here in NZ I have been under surveillance of a retired British couple. Wish they'd go back to London. Whilst others around them have all sold up, we have clung on as this is our dream home. They are manipulative, deceitful, gas lighting, narcissistic, sociopaths who thrive on staring at everyone and gossiping about them. Unfortunately for me, my other neighbour is an only child who got his house built for him by his parents. Nearly 40 but acts the age of 16. Thud, thud, thud goes the bass through every inch of our house, it vibrates our walls. We tried 10 years ago to ask him nicely to adjust the bass. His reply: we should move. We live in an upmarket area. Never imagined we'd go through something like this. It affects my sleeping, parenting, everything. We moved cities for a year to get away only to have a property manager put scum in our house and lie about it. One of the tenants was a friend of his daughter's and we were told they were great tenants. I believed him as he was an ex police detective. We returned to smashed walls, broken glass all through garden, filth, rubbish. And of course the neighbours haven't changed one bit. The bass thudder had even thrown his decking scraps onto our property. I am not the same person from this experience. I am more closed off to people, am wary of being befriended by anyone and very distrustful of people's intentions. Very different to the happy, trusting person I was ten years ago. I am also a petite woman, only 5 ft 2. I wonder sometimes if this makes it easier for people to see me as someone they can bully. I can relate to menstrual issues due to the stress too. There truly are some hideous people out there. My advice- try taking withania and rhodiola. I am finding it has helped with the stress.

My friend is having threats made against her by neighbours (to beat her up, throw acid, kill her 3 cats ...) and has already had a window broken. The neighbours involved are crack addicts. It is local authority housing, but the council isn't interested. There is an element of hate crime, as my friend is trans. She has spoken to the police today but is so worried that if she gives names, the threats will be acted upon - and the police can't be there 24/7. Local help groups seem limited to domestic violence issues. Brighton & Hove area - but I'm 4 hours' drive away. Any ideas of how to get help?
Tinker - 15-Sep-19 @ 6:43 PM
So what if your neighbor has an agenda against you, he recruits people, manipulates, and if youas much as raise your voice it is you who is seen as the harasser? And his pals testify. Who are the neighborhood some of whom are afraid of him. (One of my neighbors used to say hi to me only when the boss and his wife were not here. I had no grudge against him, but he also did what he was told by the boss, the salesperson, for example he brought the snow from his garden one very snowy winter on a piece of municipal land next to my garden which is forbidden. He did that with a lorry. The same was done by municipal /town snow plow workers who reveived a bottle of liquor from the boss of this suburb of detached houses. Actually you only have protection against the poor and the weak. The marginalised people. There is no protection against wealthy gangs and what you see in this forum as well you never mention the worst noise pollution but wait till they are teens or talk about their health. I don't think it is right. We should be honest.
Herd mentality victi - 15-Sep-19 @ 2:38 PM
My sin that started this recruiting campaign, noise campaign, was not to take part in this gossiping, she the cashier used to gather people to gossip about other people that weren't in the street at the moment. I showed i was bored and tried to avoid, but when they had been hanging around right next to my fence not being my next door neighbors for two years , i asked politely if they could move. use their own gardens.That wasn't taken well. That was what they had been waiting for. They became my "victims". I was trying to order them about. By asking why are they hanging around, loitering next to my fence, with company, kids ,what is wrong with their gardens. The recruiting started, they got people to join just out of sheer fun, or because they made out their kids were now my victims. I was "child hater". I should have known not to ask since no normal person hangs around at other peoples garden fence to start with. They had already started this campaign by then.no normal person regards himself, herself welcome , but understand gangs of people are always a nuisance. Or they respected their next door neighbors and their own privacy and plants in the garden, more than me, their cars etc and wanted to socialize but not pay the price but take its toll on me. So i should have realized normal people respect other people, all people the same to start with. Shoyld have seen they are bullies or sadistic manipulative predators and just move, to start with. But was exhausted, with two children, we had just built the house , no support from relatives who live far etc
Herd mentality victi - 15-Sep-19 @ 8:56 AM
All the participants are wealthy, good jobs, income, health, some university educated, not mostly though, but all are from here, have connections, and many generations here, which I am not. They profit from this a lot. Socially, financially, in every way. Have fun, community spirit roused by a common enemy, energy, and when they complain about me to friends and family, the friends and family come here and help to oversee the children, their grandparents used to stand in the street just staring here. Hardly ever go anywhere. They come here many times a day, take one child dome place so the parents nwver have to anywgere can stsy here keep watch and the rest of the gang stays screaming here. They take some to summer houses but the rest stay yellin, diing sport here. They never do any noisy stuff next to any other neighbor.

The prosecutor was very partial and when i took legal channels to complain about his behaviour (he told me to move just like the predator who sued me and has recruited the town, and was outright rude to me as the other side was kid) he admitted being partial but said he had the right since i had asked legal assistanceprovided by town but she didn't help me at all since kids are always more important than women and i paid for nothing. In restraining order hearing the predator who has recruited the neighborhood told they don't play in the street and plenty, plenty of other lies like I attack lone children but they are always here watching and allowing the harassment and when he and his wife got me the sentence they got here and told the rest and the powertool diy kids harassment got worse. The same day or the next the football, soccer, floorball, ice hockey, sport started again, himself pulling the goal posts in the street which he had just denied in the court. These dozens of kids used to hang about here as close they can, screaming and yelling in the street (they all have their gardens, there are many play parks for children within 2 min walking distance, football field, lovely forest behind their gardens etc etc) and at the same time they pretended to be afraid of me, a small woman 50 kg who have never touched them, yes, yelled sometimes. Basically there has been constant noise since 2007. 2018 four of his pals around my house got dogs and they stay in their garden as well. Bark a lot. They take then walking and hang about waiting and standing for long periods of time until someone comes from the opposite direction and then they "accidentally" meet here in front of my house and the racket, barking goes on and on. There has been constant construction project going within 100 metres basically from 2006.. When it starts, the boss who started this and his wife go and chat with the carpenters, the people who work at the site, pointing my direction, some of his pals go as well, same thing, what happens next is they start urinating in front of me if i try to use my garden _(havent basically tried for years without ear plugs), they excrete next to my fence and my childrens play house, they have a circular saw next to my fence. This man who is a salesperson so his wife who has boasted to me about his brother being a policeman, had also been doing this hatecampaign and noise campaign in front of my eyes for years when he tried to make like he had nothing to do with it, like said quietly to me how funny that everyone seems to hate me. I have very high blood pressure because of this, which used to be too low. I used to have a regular heavy period, but I haven't had one since this harassment got rough/ for years, i was very young to have my menopause, like about 40 years old when this stress of dozens of people harassing me started. This is not common in my family who look very young and don't have menopause this early. I have

Harassment is on new a whole new level as a family starts recruiting people on their behalf to make noise. This happens when they pretend to be the victim of their victim like saying that if the neighbour complaints about their toddlers and twenty others screaming on the street their toddlers are the victims here. They got this town to harass and participate by first bringing their kids here and then pretending to be my victims. They twenty families bring their childreb here to scream and then say they are afraid of me and if i go to street they call the police and they did and i have recieved the restraining order and conviction of assault which i did by screaming, i assaulted them by scrraming and was convicted of assault when i screamed. Before that my harassment had gone from 2007. My sentence was given 2017 and screaming took place im 2016. I thought this recruiting was just bullying but they use their offspring to harass and powertools and dogs. There has kot been a quiet quarter of an hour from 2007 when this family in it sales business, abd a cashier moved here. His brother is a policeman. I have suffered from hate campaign, noise campaign, mobbing, harassment, targeting, small town terrorism, flying monkeys from 2007 and my children.

I just moved to my current location two weeks ago. I have a neighbor who repeatedly plays her music very loudly, but the bass is the problem. It is so loud my clock fell off the wall and it rattles the light fixture. I have addressed this to my landlord and now the cops. She has taken upon herself to make sure to do it at all times of day and night. And this includes blasting her music in here car. Mind you this was after asking face to face if she and her boyfriend could turn it down nicely. I’m at my wits end and get anxiety every time she comes home or I am on my way home. I have no peace. What is some advice that can be given to me? And no earplugs are not gonna fix this amount of stupid. *real advice only please*
Stressedout - 2-Sep-19 @ 8:25 PM
I live next door to an old women who has made mine and the young children's life hell for 3 years. We have had to have the police out on many occasions as she stalks and harrasses us when kids in the garden. She has instructed solicitors demanding they make me take down my gazebo in my garden, remove my bamboo fence as she doesn't like it and continued to lie about me spaying her with a hose being verbally abusive etc. She however is the one being a nuisance on purpose to try and get a reaction , it upsets me and the children luckily the landlord in on my side as she knows the neighbor to be unpleasant. I'm at my wits end with this.

I need to know if I have grounds to file a harassment lawsuit against my neighbor? This started in Nov 2018. The drunk guy came over and threatened to shoot my cat. So my husband which is Bi-polar went after him. He never went onto his property. The next day there was a yelling match and the old lady came out and put her nose into the problem when it was just between the men so she called the cops on us saying he threatened to kill her....NO So since then we has called the cops on us 2 more times cause of the way we had our blinds open and we had a camera in our window each time the cops did nothing to us. So now she called the dog warden saying we let our dog roam the neighborhood which is a lie we have a fenced in back yard. Now she called Penn Dot saying our tree was blocking her view. Penn Dot found findings untrue and is doing nothing about it. My son is afraid to go outside to do anything cause he is afraid they will call the cops on him. My 10 year old son shouldn't be afraid to have fun on his own property. How much more can we take?She wont stop can I get her for harassment?

Last year there were four housing vacate on our block including a vacate house. all four were filled. I was thankful at first until our peace and livelihood became very isolated and saddened. One I couldn't help the people and dared not to. Secondly, their was too much going on at once. The person who initially rrented the property went in the hospital. while here were 15 adults in total- at leastfour teen agers, and 12 children in total. The major issue was that three of the cars were filled with adults, clothes and they were sleeping in front of the home rented, and in and out all morning throughout the night. The children sometimes would urinate in the front yard, or go behind the vacate home and sometime inside the vacate home. There is an abandoned car which they played in frequently. The worst things had begun occurring loud music out of the car, loud disagreements, screaming children. My daughter has a rare climate disease, Upper Airway Obstruction, she can not be exposed to chemical,, mold, tobacco, insects that carry bacteria, outdoor allergens, and mostly severe cold climate, or extreme hot climate she is prone to pneumonia , she also has Asthma, Sleep Apnea, and mobility issue-- she spends the majority of her time in doors shielding away from Virus, other peoples germs, outdoors and the very smallest thing that may cause one issue and lead to another one-- causing Upper Airway Obstruction, she can not have anesthia and this poses a major threat. She has Down Syndrome, and I too have a host of illness. And at the moment I am very mentally stressed by the neighbors and their inability to be civil and to keep things in a good perspective opposed to all the adult challenging, bullying and causing more concern at a alarming rate-- there is standing water on my side of the street, which causes another high concern. Besides, the health hazard of bacteria, mosquitoesdamage to the street an d the fact that the children not only bathed in this water and played throughout last summer this year its worse. Most of those children are no longer in that house, but the often come and there still quit a bit still there-- now there's eight adults including the teenagers or young adults because they both have boys living there which brings a different out crowd. and at least thee children, but the grandmother brings lots of children and other people in-- and sometimes stray people come and go--- they do not have trash service so the neighborhood dogs was tearing the trash up, now they just hold on to at least 6 or more 30 gallon bags and sometimes sits them on top of the car until they take them away one by one--- but the dogs both come back and forth in my yard, they allow them to walk themselves, they refuse to leave my yard, I ve ask them from a distance call you dog, they ignored me and continue talking on phone-- So, my mail and packages have been missing and a number of times I would see my mail man place the mail in the box as he did thi

I am living in a rented house . I have 3 dogs .my neighbours are harressing me all the time and one person he instigates all the others. We can't have a birthday party for the kids he has a problem . We can't even watch TV with a little extra volume. He keeps telling us it's to loud. When it is not we have stopped having parties since he gave a complaint against us. My landlord said he had the same problem when he and his mother was living in the house . I like the house and don't want to shift from here but I am unable to take my dogs out for a walk the neighbours children keep hitting them and throwing stones and even if the do there business in my compound they have a problem saying it's smelling. What can I do I'm so stressed. Please tell me what I can do . Cos the man who is doing all this is a reporter from some newspaper or so. What can I do so that he minds his own business. In his own home. Cos I hate fighting and I never northern what they do.

I have been harassed by a neighbour for 7 years.He keeps up the harassment because he eventually went too far and the police charged him.He continues but i have found not to rise to his banging, thumping, staring in my window and other forms of harassment has won through in the end.He is gradually stopping as it is obviously getting him nowhere - difficult i know but keep recording and logging but ignore harassers - they are the losers in life.

I was walking my neighbor's old dog today. We were just in front of the house. A man in a van was stalking me and creeping on me because I wasn't picking up the dog's poop fast enough for his liking. His behaviour was scaring me, so I started walking towards the house and I pulled out my phone. He said to me "I know where you live", pointed to my house and drove away. I took the dog inside, came back out and removed the poop. The creepy man had lied and reported me to the council, saying that I wasn't picking up the dog's poop. I don't know who he is, I only have his registration. How can I raise a complaint against him?
