  • Noise Issues

    We have not long moved into our new property which is a mid terrace just like our last house in which we had no issues.

    Now one side of the new property is also owned by the same landlord, and this side is being a right PITA to be honest, there music is so loud they cannot even hear us knocking on the door or window to ask them to turn it down, I can hear it thoughout my house. That side dont really like us as they are scared of dogs and we have two, they also constantly stare at us when we are in our garden.

    Is there anything the landlord can do about the noise?

    Your landlord cannot order the tenants to keep the noise down, you need to contact he EH dept. at your council.
    I offer no guarantee that anything I say is correct. wysiwyg

      If its in the AST landlord could send letter quoting AST and untenant like behaviour. Most ASTs have terms for not playing music loud or disturbing neighbours etc

        There is a point is our own AST anbout not being loud and disterbing others around us. Infact we have spoken to the nextdoor on the other side of us and 1 night they could also hear the music though our house but thought it was us.. Tbh they are just a pain in the butt both ourselfs and the otherside dont even like to use our own back gardens because they stare over and watch our every move

          It is important to diferentiate what the landlord might do, and what he has to do.

          Sadly, he has to do nothing.

          As JTA suggests, contact the council who will assess the amount of disturbance and issue noise abatement orders if they feel it is appropriate. If your neighbours do not comply with a NAO then there are considerable fines.

          • Extremely anti-social and criminal tenant -Section 8
            BouwensPB
            I have an extremely anti-social and criminal tenant. My neighbours think she is possibly a sex worker and drugs abusing and dealing. She has made a witnessed and CCTV sited assault on one neighbour and has verbally abused others. 3 crimes have been reported and the local authority talk about making...

            I have experienced far more dificult cases than that from my neighbour's tenants with my front window and my flat door window cracked.

            Make an offer she cannot refuse. Carrots work better.

            Local Authorities are slow moving because shortage of housing is a problem.

          • Burglary Damage - Who Pays?
            Pb21
            Our rented flat was broken into, in the process the Yale lock was broken and cost £100 to repair. The landlord is refusing to pay this on the basis we didn’t also lock the door with the mortice lock. We didn’t use the mortice lock as it wasn’t working although the landlord did not know this....

            Since the Yale was broken it proves the tenants took responsible measures for the security: they locked the door.
            The yale is necessary for security. It is sufficient and safe to use in case of a fire because you could get out quickly operating the lock with the thump ie you don't want to be looking...

            Thank you all for your comments. Very useful, informative and much appreciated.

            The tenants are "moving out" on the last day of the current tenancy i.e. at the end of the term. My understanding is that if they're all listed as the "Tenant" then if one gives notice it's...

            You are also aware you are now liable to pay her a penalty of up three times the deposit value?.

            My experience of a drug addict is that they will leave with a financial offering.
