Breaking News ! Constant noise can be a big issue, especially at night. We’ve all been in bed knowing there is an early start the next day and been angered by the constant noise from neighbours. Whether you are living next door to a party house, dogs are continually barking or a car alarm has gone off for the eighteenth time this week, it is inevitably stressful. And if the issue is particularly anti-social then the council, or even the police, can get involved and those responsible can face hefty fines.

It sounds obvious but sometimes it can be nipped in the bud as they may not even realise their sound system speaker is up against your bed’s wall. Anyone worried about talking to their neighbour could try writing them a letter.
. Talking to other neighbours to see if they are affected is also advised.
