This has been passed to me to look at for you. Good morning.
This is the 3rd trampoline question I have had.
The privacy issue is not particularly useful for you. That is because 99% of the houses in the UK are next door to another house and each house can see into the other person’s garden from the upstairs rooms.
What you have here however as common-law nuisance because this is literally by anybody’s opinion, nuisance because you are going to have kids bouncing up and down and making a whole load of noise (I’m talking about the trampoline noise, not kids screaming although the latter happens to be one of my pet hates).
However if the neighbour will not move this is no magic solution to make him comply and your only remedy is to take him to court for an injunction to make him move it.
I would mention both common-law nuisance and privacy and let them, if they defend the action, argue that there is no breach of privacy
You may find that a strongly worded letter from a solicitor threatening a court application and an application for costs, may focus the mind without actually the need to get to court.
Check your house insurance to see if you have legal expenses cover that would pay for the legal cost of taking this to court.
If I have answered your question for you, at the top of the page, you should see a rating facility. Can you please rate my reply 3 stars or more because that really helps me? Please note you are not rating whether it’s favourable, because sometimes you may not get the answer you want, but basically my knowledge and way of dealing.
The thread does not close and I am happy to answer any questions you may have arising from this.
