Has anyone had any experience of dealing with noisy neighbours ?

Basically, the last two weekends, the lad next door has had load of his drunken mates round for a party. I've phoned the police twice but I'm not sure that they took action. This morning, the lads were still making a row out in the garden when it was going light at 5.30am.

My dad is recovering from a stroke and this is the last thing he needs. Ideally, I'd like to see someone prosecuted under this "repetetive beats" clause in the 1994 Criminal Justice Act.

I'd be grateful for any advice.

They always suggest you try to reason with the occupier. I would be reluctant to do that though given that they have shown such a lack of respect, they are unlikely to be reasonable people.

1) You can try the councils ASB team http://www.wirral.gov.uk/my-services/com...r/how-report-it but they were always short staffed even before the cuts.

2) Find out who your Dedicated Police Officer is from the Merseyside Police website - they may be able to sort it for you.

Have you tried having a polite word with your neighbour?

Hi, my husband and i had this problem when our daughter was born, every night the neighbours would either drink and play scissor sisters over and over and over again or beat each other up to the point where you could hear the head being punched against the wall, he even decided it would be a good idea to use his angle grinder between 2 and 4am as his motorbike needed repairs, of course when the police went round and the grinder was still smoking he denied using it, so we contacted environmental health who put noise monitors in our house and sent people round at all times of the day and night to collaborate our version of events, within 2 weeks the person was served an eviction order and although the scumbag keyed my car upon leaving, it was a releif when he left to be woken to the sounds of my newborn Baby and not his angle grinder or scissor sisters, you can get their number from directory enquiries, they are fantastic and they may try and fob you off at first but keep the pressure on them, also everytime you phone the police get an incident log number which environmental health will use should it come to prosecution or eviction, good luck, i know exactly how you feel.

Environmental health is what we told to do, the police really have no powers as such unless there is an anti social order in place or something along those lines.

Good luck

I once owned a flat in Birkenhead, Nr Hamilton Sq. I had to sell it because of noisy residents and anti-social behaviour, It was a solicitor and his partner causing the problem, somone who should have known better, some of the flats were rented and some were private. The problem was we were both private owners. I informed the freeholders and got no joy!

I phoned the police about one particular problem (similar to yours) when living in Birkenhead. This only made the relationship worse between myself and the two persons involved. It is a hard situation to deal with and there is no easy answer?

Do you know if they own the house or if itís rented? If they rent the house you should contact the Landlord. Before you proceed with contacting their Landlord you would be advised to try and talk your neighbours first as you can then hold it against them should they refuse to respond to your pleads.
I would advise you to take a polite approach regardless of your adverse feelings towards your unruly neighbours as this will strengthen your case in regards to contacting the Landlord.
You may also want to contact other neighbours which may be suffering from the noise. The more support you gain the stronger your case is and there is more pressure on the authority to act upon your complains.
In regards to your desire to prosecute, I think you should be looking at the Public Disturbance Law.
"It is unlawful for any person to cause, or for any person in possession of property to allow to originate from the property, sound that is a public disturbance noise."

When attempting to speak to your neighbours please note down any abuse or signs of aggression as they are included with the Public Disturbance Law.

You may also want to keep a diary in regards to when they start to when they go on to as that can serve as evidence.

I'd honestly try talking to them first before doing anything like reporting it or legal action. Don't do it when they are drunk though.

Just be honest and tell them how you feel. I would tell them you don't mind the odd party, but two weekends on the run is getting a bit too much, particulary with your father's health.
