SP Law offers assistance with Neighbour Disputes in Northampton, Wellingborough, Kettering and surrounding areas. We can also offer assistance for claims from further afield.
As can be expected, falling out with neighbours can be distressing. However, if you do not act, the behaviours may continue or even escalate. If this happens, then you should obtain legal advice.
If you feel safe and comfortable doing so, it is best to speak about the issue at hand with your neighbour before the situation gets worse. If speaking does not help, then you can write a complaint letter. If your neighbour rents their home, you can also write to their landlord or agent. It is advisable to obtain as much evidence as you can to support your claim. Remember to write as much detail as possible. Include what incident happened, the length of time it affected you, how it affected you e.g. ‘23rd May 2022 – Party next door – Loud Music from 10pm – 3am – could not sleep’. If you receive any messages from your neighbour in relation to the incidents, then keep them as evidence. Where appropriate, you should take photographs, sound recordings or videos (please only do this if it is safe to do so).
If you believe your neighbour’s conduct amounts to antisocial behaviour, you should report it to their landlord (this could be a private landlord, a housing association, or the local council) and/or to the police.
Disputes with neighbours can come in various forms. Please see the list below (however, this list is not exhaustive):-
Legal remedies are potentially available. For example, if a nuisance continues, we can take your case to the courts and seek appropriate relief, such as a civil injunction. An injunction is a court order requiring someone ‘to do’ or ‘to stop doing’ an act. It can put a stop to a nuisance quickly and effectively. Injunctions can also be used in other circumstances, e.g. to stop neighbours from removing a wall / a fence or engaging in anti-social behaviour (to name a few).
We can also assist if you are seeking a financial remedy if you have suffered harm or loss where it can be proven that a duty of care was owed.
