    Simply refer them to CaB's advice on neighbour disputes. No further help...
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...


      The tenant has replied that they cannot afford the fees and in a nutshell they have asked if they can leave after 6 months. I’m sort of thinking that I should agree to this and also asking them if I can begin showing new tenants round with 1 or 2 months to go.

      Or, should I be firm and say no and refer them to the CAB on the noise?


        Well if you had done the 6 months first time they could be leaving after that anyway, as always with these things its a compromise, i would not like to have unhappy tenants who could simply stop paying rent and cause hassle, but the underlying issue with noise (if there is one of course) would need to be dealt with or other tenants will also have the same issue. I do understand its not your home but theirs, but it is your income and if you have a nightmare ASB property attached then your flat/house could become difficult to rent at all.

        In my local town there has been a terraced house up for let for far longer than would be expected on that road, other further down have gone within weeks, this has been up for months..... why..... it has a ' Beverley Hill Billies'' property attached to it and i for one would not like to live there so why would anyone else, noisy neighbours are no different..... just initially less obvious.
