Noisy neighbours can be a nightmare. As can unwanted odours wafting across a boundary fence.
Our homes are generally regarded as our castles, but unwanted noise from close neighbours can make life extremely difficult. Aside from the obvious irritation, confrontation and disputes with neighbours over noise can be stressful, lead to sleepless nights and in extreme cases, to violent confrontations.
Noise problems causing Neighbour Disputes
Noise problems come in many shapes and forms. All night partying, loud music late at night, incessant dogs barking, constant fighting and arguments can all result in unacceptable noise levels.
However there are other forms of noise pollution that may be less harsh but still an irritant. What about your neighbour keeping chickens and deciding to add in a Cockerel for breeding. How do you handle that?
Similarly, there are many ways in which smells from neighbouring houses or agricultural establishments may become a cause for concern. How do you prove the existence of an odour?
If you get on well with your neighbours, usually a polite word will suffice but if the noise continues and begins to become a major irritant, then it is time to call in the experts.
Neighbour Disputes - Solution
Noise and Odour are very subjective elements. What may annoy one person may not affect another. However, residential developments have guidelines that will advise you on an acceptable level of these pollutants. Local authorities have the power to enforce restrictions, but you need to be able to prove that your life is being adversely affected by the impact from your neighbours.
Contact The Environmental Testing Company and let us monitor noises and odours from next door. We will provide independent expert witnesses to back up your case and ensure that the irritation will be sorted as quickly as possible.
