Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
What is it you want to achieve please? Why wont the Police do anything?Alex
OK - is it all coming from the property?
Ok - wont the Council get a noise abatement order?
Have they ever installed noise monitoring equipment?
Ok - I would speak to Environmental Health or the Chief Officers Office at the Council.
They should come out and install noise equipment. If they refuse then you can complain to the Local government Ombudsman.
They offer a free, independent service and can examine your complaint for free: www.lgo.org.uk
Or you can consider proceedings for noise and harassment against these neighbours yourself.
You would need to issue proceedings using form N1:
The Court will list the matter for hearing and decide whether to make an order stopping them being noisy and harassing you.
If the Court makes the order and they break it, this is contempt of Court which they could be warned, fined or sent to prison
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
You may wish to have a Solicitor but if you win you can claim these costs back.
Does that clarify? Alex
If you have the evidence yes you should win.
You have to pay the legal proceedings yes, unless you get fee remission from the Courts.
Yes. Recordings, diary sheets when it occurred, any witnesses etc.
If you lose you would be liable for legal costs of the other side.
Does that help? Alex
There is no place you can find out about cost.
If they defend it and they lose and the legal costs are £5000 - you could be ordered to pay that.
There is no place sadly.
If you have evidence then you are more likely to win.
Yes - Protection From Harassment Act 1997
