General domestic noise

in Anti-social Behaviour Tags: anti-social behaviour

My neighbours have been noisy for years, banging on the floor upstairs, loud music played in the day and sometimes at night, always arguing and shouting, dog barking, friends coming over and talking or laughing loudly. We never have peace and has affected our health. Can we do anything about this?

It depends upon how loud they are and how frequently they disturb you. Is their behaviour unreasonable, for example, or is it intrusive because of the nature of the property you live in? Could the behaviour be classed as anti-social? You could, perhaps, chat to your local environmental health officer and local neighbourhood police contact first, before making a complaint. There is also the possibility that the sound insulation quality between your properties is poor.
