Common Causes of Neighbour Disputes:

1. Boundaries, Fences and Walls – establishment, use, repair, planning restrictions & party walls.
2. Trees & Hedges – roots, dangerous trees, overhanging branches, preservation orders, heights, privacy and light.
3. Noise – noisy neighbours, general noise in the neighbourhood, children, dogs, car & burglar alarms.
4. Parking & Access.
5. Abusive behaviour – discrimination, harassment, victimisation, racial or religious attacks.

We would always recommend that you:

1. Try to talk to you neighbour but if you can’t, then write a letter outlining your concerns.
2. If the neighbour is a tenant try to contact their landlord.
3. Contact the appropriate Local Authority Department – Planning, Environmental Health.
4. Call the Police in situations where a criminal offence, assault, breach of the peace or harassment has taken place.
5. Contact a Solicitor – for legal advice & guidance, letter/s and/or court action.
