I bought my first house nearly a year ago and at the very start things were ok. The house to the right of us was empty and the one to the left owned by a seemingly nice couple (mid to late 30s)
A lad then moved into the house to the left of us having left his wife and tbh he's been a model neighbour from the start. We very rarely hear him and the worst thing I can say he's done is spam his door at 2 am on a Sunday morning (not really even worth mentioning)
Things turned when our other neighbours started to make more and more noise, shouting, arguing, slamming doors. They even had a domestic on new years eve resulting on her banging on our window (like I was gonna help her)
It all came to a head one morning when she started playing music at 5 am in the morning...that's when I had to give in and call the Feds as it was quite obvious they are not even worth trying negotiate with.
The police came out (they actually sent 2 cars) and luckily the music could be heard out on the street so the cops gave them a slap on the wrists and the music went away (ah bliss)
They obviously don't even look our way now which suits me fine but it's apparent that they are trying to make life difficult for us.
She has a push bike which seems to sit outside for days on end and sometimes it's round the back standing up and other times it's lying on the path next to their house so it takes up the whole path. This is a shared path which we have every right to use and do so as we need to take our bins that way and I need access to my garage.
They still fight and argue (who doesn't) but I can live with that. It's the weekend benders that I cannot live with anymore.
Everything seems to be quiet until they start having loud as hell conversations at around 5am in the morning. Fair enough a one off but guaranteed at least once every weekend you'll get woken up at 5am by Wayne and waynetta slob having some stupid conversation.
Today there seemed to be three people in the conversation.
I wouldn't mind so much but its worse at the fact I work shifts. I start at 2 today buts it's ok for them as they'll be stinking in their beds for the rest of the day.
I shouldn't have to put up with it as here's the crunch point, I own my home, so does my other neighbour but these slobs privately rent this house.
The blinds are left shut all day every day (apart from once a month when they clean the place....the smell that comes from the windows is horrendous.
I just want this sorted out now to be totally honest. Why should I have to put up with this ****e? We can all be noisy at times but these idiots are taking the complete ****. I've managed to get the landlords name and address through a Scottish register of landlords, should I put my concerns to him directly or should I visit CAB/the council.
I'm in Scotland btw
Sorry for the rant but I'm tired
