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.

I moved into my home and my neighbour will not allow me to use communal garden ( he is not the tenant) he threw my stuff out of back garden & refuses to deal with housing , he called 999 to me 3 times police were fuming then 4th time police came to me everything changed he had some police friend he found , since then my life is a misery , I'm female live alone & he badly abuses & bullies me publicly then instead of police going to him they turn up to me & I'm in trouble again ( nothing official though , not been arrested nothing) just everything overseen by police friend who is nameless to me, my neighbour we don't even know his real name , I did everything I was told to do by housing & if I complain about him to housing police come and bully me , I have had a long road & stay home alone most of time no family friends around me , this neighbour is making my life not worth living & this policeman's is even worse , I have about 11 reports I put into police including threats on my life in policeman's name ( by neighbour) malicious 999 call to fire brigade ( I have fire report) attack on my support worker & 2x threats to petrol bomb me , all of this may I add he does mainly in public I get letters with crime numbers then random calls from police saying they are not taking them further , so they won't help nor can I help myself , this policeman has spoken to housing council fire brigade & I've found that if I call police housing etc he over rides everything , my neighbour has me like a puppet on a string he filled the lids of my bins with fat fishing maggots it took a couple of hours to clean out next morning I had police at my door telling me I was anti social for cleaning my bins at 10pm I repeatedly told him I hadn't done that it was 10pm by the time I finished cleaning them he totally ignored it and continued threatening me after he left I went to bin they were full of maggots again, 4 times a week sometimes police at my door if I complain to housing soon as neighbour finds out o have police at my door , they use my mental health ( my anxiety & fear of people to humiliate me as in maybe I need my meds changing do I need a doctor then they use my mental health to close me down & make me look bad to people I have tried to get help from) my neighbour this is clearly repeated to and finds very funny & everyday he is worse to me , I'm scared to stay home and scared to go out , between them my life isn't worth dot & stopped me getting help from anywhere , laws and rules and the right to be treated as a human being may be written but doesn't mean you are allowed them

My health isn't serious detriment. I have been struggling for five years with chronic Lyme disease, and my heart is extremely fragile. I have convulsions and seizures from telephone radio frequency and Wi-Fi. I've also had a heart attack in 2018 from electricity. I got new neighbors who have some pretty ramped up Wi-Fi. So I have been trying to shield and block my home as best I can. But there's something that they turn on that when I do I can't breathe and my heart starts to go insane and I can tell I'm going into cardiac arrest so I have to run. The first time it happened it caught me by surprise I literally fell to the ground urinating myself because of the Wi-Fi. I couldn't breathe and had to try to get myself up to run out of the house. But I have done my best to protect my house but there was always one thing that they would ramp up but I cannot block. I had already told the new neighbors but I had this sensitivity and so I thought I would go there and offered to buy them a remote control to turn off their Wi-Fi at night or when they're not using it. They just started yelling saying they're not changing anything for me. I cannot believe that someone could be so insensitive instead of at least discussing it. So after I went home I had gathered my information and I had created a document about EHS. And I sent them some information about it and information about Wi-Fi and what it does to children so they would realize that it's also harming their kid. And them… I sent him this packet of information and then I got a letter back saying they did not want to hear anything more about my illness and if I sent them another letter etc. they would contact the police on me for harassment. I think this is complete insanity! I'm fighting for my life not harassing them. I gave them information for them to do with as they will and had hoped for compassion. I never asked him to get rid of the Wi-Fi which would actually be most optimal. But I know that people are doing what they're going to do with boosters and I'll kinds of craziness. So I did my best to protect myself from it. They just moved in and have the gall to tell me I need to leave. I am very sick and don't have much longer to live I sure am not going to go through selling a house and trying to find a place etc. etc. I have cancer and my prognosis is less than two years. I just want to clarify that sending someone a letter with information is not harassment. I had no intentions of sending them anymore but after that asinine reply I feel like they just anger me to the point that I want to prove that this is not harassment and they can't threaten me because of my cry out for help

Our neighbours have been complaining about parking and blocking their driveway... Photos have been taken. They have parked their car in the way and put their bins over our boundary. They have only spoken to us once about it but have started to accost our guests and be rude to them. Yesterday I confronted them about it and the male became very aggressive very quickly. I admit, I said a few things I'm ashamed of but I felt threatened and actually rang the police. They talked to me and weren't called out. Is there this petty? Where do we stand? And how can we sort this out? We are having a drive tarmaced next month but I'm worried until then. Thanks

I am a level 5 Media Law level 5 journalism and also para legal...In another city I had been trying to support victims of abuse which they had been endured in care of support homes and also in private lodgings. I am about to study the legal options as a witness to victim support. It is unclear why some harmful agressors or attackers remain to be untouched and contine to be a problem to the vunerable. As a witness It is certain that I have learnt it is also very difficult to be taken seriously and have been set through the paces of false representation. I have relocated to be close to family I have herd a number of complaints which I thought were all in the mind, however my sisters complaints have now started after 8 months to become real issues. I had been trying to find out who was threatening the integrity of my sister. She complained that the neighbours were trying to evict her, her x partner who lodges with her appears to be gaslighting as the neighbours also do. I met a woman who exclaimed one of the women identified to have been attacking my disabled sister was a corrupt social worker from GoldHawlk Road area ... she is a hard drug user.. and the victim told me that she found out she had been robbed when she woke up from a coma.. and the social worker had been chasing her and involving herself in mental health tribunals attempting to hide evidence of robbery and murdering her sister. Again another health support worker.. which was round at the neighbours had been abusing the mother of the haphazzard almost vunerable repeate offender. Which I presume has torrets.. I tried to remedy the situation. as much as they are troublesome to my extreemly vunerable sister... the vunerability of disabled people and also attacks on witnesses are a concern. I have been trying to grasp onto the principles of what are known as harassment groups and have also been supporting a anti bullying group manager with legal steps. My sister had made several complaints about local nusance.. if that had been the neighbours in a combination as act of retaliation to disapproving activities. There are three issues one is the issue of intruders , one is the issue of the negibours unwelcomed guests and also their effects and then there is the issue that an active circulating group of harassers which pray on the vunerable cause mental unrest and instill stress on free movement as part of an assisting act to press them into mental instability. Where are we standing with the law and with safer neighbourhoods when.. an attack group are the cause of mental unrest and not as part of their psychosis? It is very disturbing that people pray on the weak. We have taken soms aditional security measures such as alarms and locks. I think more work is needed to support victims from intruders and the intervention of using the neighbours as a cushion for giving room to cause noise or physical dusturbances. On the one hand, where ones movement is being surpressed, or safety at home is r

Just to add to that... the direct neighbours Liz family up and down stairs... The half sister had been absing the mother. It was awful.. really really bad. I knew that my sister was having issues .. but it is difficult to obtain information as the victims are too scared to come forward. As the fear that the authorities will not support them with harassment or prosecute the abusers... they instead.. send visitors which threaten to hospitalise the victims.. in a local institute. Where many have complained in extreemly high numbers of fatalites caused my medical complications on pharmaceutical drugs, in lethal combination or medical trials. This makes the social workers on drugs intimidation and threat to their integrity as if placed with the fear of threat to kill.

My next door neighbour, a woman in her 50's and her teenage daughter are perfect neighbours but desperate to move away after being harassed, bullied insulted and frightened by the neighbour on the other side of her rented home. He has outbursts of temper, cameras everywhere and has run a campaign to have her evicted or force her to leave for over 2 years now including covert filming, violent outbursts, insults as he curb crawled past her and lies about her and about me. She was even prescribed anti depressants and I have broken down in tears in front of strangers at the frustration and thought of what he has put the two females through without me being able to protect them. The police will do nothing to stop him as he cleverly convinces them his behaviour is not harassment and uses the fact he has a 'wife' and child to gain sympathy. His behaviour and ability to project an innocent image when required is sociopathic. Since I have stood up and witnessed in support of her he then turned on me with threats of violence which resulted in a minor altercation in which he used his friends as 'witnesses' to my allegedly assaulting him although I am half his size and twice his age, being in my 70's. The bottom line is that I am to be charged with assaulting him even though he and another young man assaulted me, and after he started banging violently on her wall several nights ago she finally had enough and is trying to leave. We are all distressed about it but for all the advice such as that on this website about rights etc nobody really helps. It often takes years, and most people end up running away from it as police 'help' is ineffective and advice to avoid the person is not practical when the predator is a close neighbour. Private legal action is far too expensive for people like us.Nobody is going to evict him from a house he owns against a couple of neighbours who are just tenants.

I have had to call the police twice since beginning my tenancy with housing association where on one occasion a mentally disturbed nuisance neighbour started wandering around other peoples garden spaces and exposing himself as well as the incident when he pulls a very 5 inch cheese knife out following me around with it. Took around 10-15 yrs to evict him before this incident then had to call police on him. But now after false assurance from landlord new tenant would be carefully selected has left me with an even worse situation with a drug dealing woman beating and abusive guy moved in flat below me. Things from day 1 started to get progressive and worse over the past 4 months even during lockdown he has sent his very submissive partner to ponce of all the other neighbours. I have recorded all incidents and even logged times and dates. His tenancy is unsecured because he hasn’t yet been here for a year and already he was drug raided during 3rd month of lockdown but the police could not arrest him. And since then he has caused issues I have had to raise with landlord housing association. They refuse t acknowledge the fact I suffer with mental health and even my physical health is now in decline I am 35 years old I have ptsd and anxiety, sleep disorder and among those I have suppressants to control my low mood disorder. I have been first hand witness to abuse growing up around it. And all I hear often in the early hours or during day they will be arguing although there are occasional times when I feel compelled to ring 999 because I can hear her screaming for him to leave her alone and the nuisances he causes are just as disturbing druggies and people he owes money to coming to the communal block at all hours. I have become so fed up of feel depressed and I want to get relocated as a result of lack of support from my housing association which supposedly prides itself on dealing with this type of ASB and Nuisances. I feel unsafe and constantly threatened by this new tenants who’s doesn’t abide social distancing or even has courtesy to where a covering when him or his partner come knocking on other residents doors in the maisonette flat of four units. List just goes on and my landlord will not help me and they treat me with contempt every time I raise issues with the way it’s not being dealt with and they are heavily relying on police to act on a possible threat to life or injury to others who are forcibly exposed and confined by the close proximity we all live in. I cannot see myself staying here any longer but some part of me feels a foreboding feeling of violence being perpetrated by this guy as I had to call the police yesterday due to his threats against me and he even ran upstairs in communal hallway to show he is willing. I heard his brother and a group of there friends set alight someone a woman after pouring petrol on her some years ago! I do not feel safe the property itself is outdated and unsecured in terms of noise reduction and safety

My neighbour has spat on me, hit me, constantly verbally abuses me. Police say I have no proof. I have started recording with my phone and now have proof. The police went to arrest him, he started screaming at police along with his family and literally the police backed off. They claimed they have mental issues and the police backed off after hours of fighting the police off. The mum threw herself on the officers, it was a huge scene. Me and my neighbours have had enough? We tried talking nicely to mediate but they got angrier. What do we do?

Jettie - 4-Sep-20 @ 5:42 PM
We have recently put in a planning application which has made our immediate neighbours turn on us and started false accusations we have stayed civil but they generally ignore us (it’s only a normal back and side extension and the house is very detached at the end of the culdesac so won’t affect anyone.They are now holding a residents meeting and have invited every household in the road /village (it’s quite a small area) except us ? The meeting is apparently to let residents get to know each other and discuss any problems. Is this a form of harassment/ victimisation? We are only aware of the meeting as the other neighbours who are fine with us told us , they are shocked we are left out.

My neighbour has called the fire department on us 5 times in the last 3 months. The fire fighters shake their head and tell us to carry on when they have came.We have a small chimaney which we have small fires with only wood just for ambiance and s'mores. We have lived here 7 years and this calling on us is all new. She has always been a hyper condreact but has worsen big time with the whole covid 19 situation. We have helped them over the years with cutting their grass and such and now they will turn their heads when they see us. Any advice ? I'm starting to lose my cool

Hi I have had on going trouble from my neighbours for years. Then the girl moved in next door and she wanted everything her own way. She pinched my parking space and kept parking outside my house. She is vile. Her and the other neighbour teamed up and so did the neighbour next door to her that beat up my son some years ago. It feels like a vendetta against me. I lost my temper in the back garden a few weeks ago and have now got a public order offence against me. (The lowest one, police said). What can I do? Thankyou.
Shaz - 17-Aug-20 @ 6:03 PM
I've lived in my house for 2 years. Since having a baby 10 months ago my nextdoor neighbour has been vile, when the baby cries she bangs on the wall shouts and swears through the wall, sends her 10 year old round at all hours to tell us to shut up. For a month her daughter through her packed lunch into my back garden from her bedroom window. Yesterday she came and knocked on my door at 9:30am and accused my partner of screaming at the baby in the middle of the night and has threatened to report us for abuse to social services. I dont know how much more I can take off her. I feel uncomfortable in my own home. I feel like I'm on egg shells and hope that the baby doesnt cry so she doesnt shout. We try not to have the tv too loud so we dont do anything to set her off. When ever I see her I apologise for the baby crying and the reason he cries (colic when he was little and teething are the main reasons) and she says it's okay babies cry. I've just reported it to the council but they said it could take up to a week to get a response.

I am taking my previous tenant to a small claims court for rent arrears. We have had no contact for 7 months apart from passing them in the street one day and in the car on the odd occasion as they had moved just up the road after we evicted them. We have only just filed the claim with the county court 10 days ago and today I received a threatening email from my old tenant saying they believed they did not owe the money and can evidence this but are willing to pay. What hurt me was the false allegations in the email to say i have been pursuing his wife around the local area and if this continued they would report me to the police as this has now become a serious problem ! This is totally false, in fact me and my wife have felt intimidated by her as she keeps driving, jogging and walking past our house. I have called the police this evening to log this and raise my concerns about the false accusations. We have always conducted ourselves well and remained professional throughout this stressful process but to be falsely accused of harrassing/pursuing an individual when they are the ones in the wrong has really angered and upset me. I am contacting the court tomorrow to inform them that I am being intimidated. I feel they are making false accusations against me and are trying to intimidate me. Have I done the right thing and what else should I do ?

I and my family members have victimized by rnm detector through electromagnet harassment by neighbours about nine years.After lodging an FIR against the neighbours, they have become more furious and they have started to emit havoc radiation on us and the scale of radiation has become 450 ut. On that time they have used DEW(Direct Energy Weapon) and it is noticed that the tree leaves have burnt. From the CCTV footage it is seen that they are using RNM Detector continuously which rays and beams are coming from the neighbours house and all are invisible. I can say this radiation is generally invisible human eye.But the thermal imaging camera detect infrared on heat radiation i.e. invisible to the human eye (which looks like an image through density for or smoke.I have seen one spy camera is glowing light at night. But no positive response from the police.

I bought a property in west Wales in 2016.a beautiful small holding with an acre of land.Worked very hard in the garden landscaping planting flowers & shrubs.The place is beautiful.The neighbour whom I got friendly with for a short time, turned nasty.While we were away she would let herself into my garden and helping herself to my roses etc. While I was at home she would just walk in and call up the stairs for me.I later found out they owned the property I purchased and their ground completely surrounds mine.They separated one dwelling into two, mine being one.For the last eighteen monthsI've been bombarded with abuse and harassment, abusive language I've been terrified to even go into my own garden.My partner has been assaulted and spat at and I've been shielding as I'm insulin diabetic, heart problems suffer PTSD my recent ECG has shown a strain on my heart.I've just lost two sister in a space of four months of one another in their early sixties.The abuse and threats have been reported to police and council.These people take pleasure in driving who ever purchases this property out.I've sent a letter to my local MP, OPPC police, Complaints polic.eThe reason being I've had a police warning letter NOT to phone either 101 or 999 ever again.This came as a shock.Police, solicitor, council all advised me to ring police.The warning letter also stated NOT to take photos video of the neighbours.Police, council & solicitor, advised us to place CCTV and carry our phone everywhere in order to provide evidence against the neighbour as they will prosecute.Each time Officers left the neighbours continue, even though they were told.Abuse and harassment continue on a daily bases.The warning letter was shocking as the neighbours son stipulated to me two days before the warning letter, I'll have you done for wasting police time!Plus the warning letter had been written out by a PCSO and I question weather this is legal and should have been written by an active PC?please advise

Hello Polly, depending on where you live you can get an order of protection a no stalking order or restraining order. Check with your local court house or county seat. Good luck
