Hi,

Thank you for your query. In short, yes she can obtain a restraining order against him. She should contact the Police to take this further.

Alternatively, she can make an application to her local county court for a General Form Injunction.

This would state the neighbour cannot contact or harass her or come within a certain distance. If the neighbour breaches it, he would be arrested for contempt of court.

Details of how to apply for a General Form Injunction can be found at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/form-n16a-application-for-injunction-general-form

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
