How to deal with difficult neighbours?

You have moved into your dream home but then find a nightmare neighbour living next door.

Many people have suffered from noisy neighbours playing loud music, arguing, rowdy parties, barking dogs, or even a noisy construction site nearby but how do we actually handle this?

  • You can try to talk to them about the problem direct if they appear approachable and friendly.
  • You can report them to your local council.
  • You can check your local citizens advice centre or click here for guidance.
  • You can contact your local Police station.  The Police are able to deal with the issue if the noise causes a breach of the peace, if you suffer threatening or violent behaviour and/or anti-social behaviour.
