Can we have the complete background please?
Who is making these accusations.
Who are they making them to and what problems is it causing?
It is a ongoing dispute - I am the freeholder in a converted victorian 2 flat building and the upstairs party have a 999 year lease. I live in the garden flat. All I would like to know is if there is an 'official/legal company' who could moniter my property to see that the dogs never bark and there is never a sound coming from my property. Karina
You can get a noise consultant to install the various soundrecording equipment and then provide you with a report. You are going to probablybe paying about £1000 for that.
To be honest, I would tell the complainant to get lost and tellthem, if they feel really aggrieved, to refer the matter to the EnvironmentalHealth Department at the Council and who will, if necessary, install sound monitoringequipment and it will cost you nothing. From what you have said, I cannot seewhy you should have that cost of bringing deemed in a noise consultant yourself.
If this neighbour simply complains all the time, then it isharassment and you are entitled to go to the police to have them warmed underthe Protection from Harassment Act. In actual fact, they only need to complaintwice and on the third occasion it becomes harassment. They either have to dosomething about it and issue court proceedings or refer the matter to theEnvironmental Health Department or shut up
Does that answer the question? Can I answer any specific points?
