Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
yes we have and a letter has been sent from the landlord to them. (to add here is the exact wording: "4. No bird dog or other animals which may cause reasonable annoyance to any owner lessee or occupier of the other maisonettes comprised in the Building or the lessor's property shall be kept in or upon the demised premises."
Council? - we bought the property and have a leasehold. Please enlighten me on your answer.
Yes I understand that.
The Council have a duty under the Environmental Protection Act to investigate any nuisance under the Act.
Therefore they can investigate, install noise monitoring equipment and see what the levels are.
If the Council consider this a nuisance they can prosecute your neighbour.
Clearly this does not cost you anything and is free.
However what you can not do is force the managing agent or Landlord to take action, it is a matter for them.
But the Council CAN take action and prosecute.
So although on first glance it seems strange I would consider that.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
