Neighbour nuisance

What can I do if I have a problem with my neighbours?

Whenever possible you should try to solve a neighbour dispute yourself. Often the best way to do this is to talk to your neighbour and try to explain clearly and simply the problems you are experiencing as a result of their behaviour.

If the persons responsible continue to be unreasonable, walk away.

Housing complaint

Tenants should initially contact their Housing Officer, whether this is for council owned property, housing association or a registered social landlord.
