No - mainly because I'm planning on selling in a couple of months time and I'm worried that (1.) nobody will buy it if they hear all the noise he makes and (2.) that we will have to declare having made a complaint when we sell it meaning again that it will hinder the sale. I was hoping I could send her an official looking letter telling her that I was going to appoint a solicitor under the Noise Act or similar and spur her into doing something . . .
Maybe. What would a solicitor suggest saying in such a letter?
Also, if I sent her a letter myself saying that I was GOING to instruct a solicitor (due to the fact she hasn't responded to my text asking to sit down with her to discuss how it can be dealt with nor has she made any effort to curb it herself). Would I say it would be dealt with under the Noise Act 1996 or a different one. Is there a law against having professional recording/music equipment in a residential property for example? Plus he's an undeclared lodger as far as I'm aware and not sure if that impacts our joint building insurance etc etc
Also, if I did send her a letter via solicitor would that have to be declared when I put the property on the market?
