Neighbour From Hell Bullies Again

 Please excuse any poor grammar, punctuation or spelling today.  I am knackered 😴 

A week ago young neighbour had yet another party ,totally ignoring rules and keeping us awake until the early hours yet again.  The next day I tried to speak to her but she ignored my knocks on the door so I wrote a polite note asking her to please be aware of noise levels when she next had visitors because G had to be up at 7am for work.  She ignored it.

Yesterday afternoon visitors began to arrive in taxis and cars at 4.30pm. Great...I thought...here we go. At 5.30pm a minibus pulled up and 6 girls piled out of the house and into the vehicle.  Yippee! They were going out! By 10.30pm they were back; roaring drunk and LOUD.  Immediately the pounding dance music was turned on and there were screams, shouting and bang after bang of the doors.  We waited patiently until midnight before trying to sleep through it but couldn't.  When I could stand it no longer, I filled in the online form on my phone to report Covid rule breaking.  Yet another car pulled up at 1.30am but no response from the police.  I finally got to sleep at 5am, woke again at 6.30am, gave in and got up.  At 7.30am whilst making a mug of tea to help down the paracetamol to relieve my headache, a taxi pulled up to collect 3 girls who fell out of the house whooping and taking selfies on their phones.  Its obvious that at least 8 were at the party and 6 slept overnight.  I despair....she is a bully and cares for no one but herself.  Her baby daughter spends more time out of the house than in it too.

The gloves are off.  I intend to keep reporting her now until something is done.  Her behaviour is anti social and affecting our health at this point.

What worries me now too is how she is treating her baby daughter. Is she safe?

Sorry for such a downbeat post but I needed to get it off my chest.

Stay safe everyone x

  2. I feel for you I really do. I've seen so much new housing going up in the nearby town with very little space between. It's a recipe for disaster. I hope you get some joy from the reporting.

    1. Thank you, Tania. I didn't expect to have complete privacy on a new estate like this but didn't expect to be kept awake all night on a regular basis either. Daytime noise isn't such a problem, it's when it disrupts our sleep that we despair. We are at the end of our tether.

  3. Have you spoken to the local council, children's services or antisocial behaviour departments, they can help. Here we and our neighbours are quietly holding our breath, our mad nasty neighbour has been telling people she is looking for a plot of land to move to, after 11 years, can we hope.

    1. Oh I do hope she moves on and leaves you all alone at last. It will be such a relief I expect. Personally, I am about to telephone the council to see what can be done. Fingers crossed...

  6. Oh, you have my sympathy. I had neighbors like that in my first home, and it was nonstop stress and frustration. Code enforcement showed up and cited them. They also had to demolish some unpermitted structures that they had built. Things are quiet now. I really hope your situation improves. I would take photos and videotape.

    1. Thank you, Stephenie, that is a great idea of yours. I've started making notes of her behaviour too.

    1. Thank you, potty, she doesn't respond to 'nice' and I refuse to be bullied at the age of 71. Thanks so much for your good wishes.

  8. I am really sorry to hear that your young anti social neighbour is back to her old tricks with her chums again. Every little injustice should be written down, recorded and passed to appropriate departments until something is done. Thinking of you and wishing you a restfull night x

  9. It takes all sorts as they say. I wonder what causes her to behave in such an anti social manner. And what role model did she grow up with. Poor child being caught up in it all. x

    1. I have no idea what makes her behave in this manner. She seems to have it all: nice home, good job and a lovely baby. She is so selfish though and I do worry about the baby. It's very telling that her boyfriend, the baby's father, didn't stay long after the first lockdown. He was a lovely chap.

  10. She sounds absolutely awful. I would definitely report her (don’t you have any noise laws in the UK?).
    I would also suggest earplugs. I am a very light sleeper and began using them some years ago. They work very well for me and might help in these situations.

    1. Yes, Annie, we do have laws against anti social behaviour which is what she is now indulging in. My hubby took a sleeping pill and put cotton wool in both ears on Sunday and still failed to drown out the bangs and shouting. I suppose I could resort to ear plugs too but I do need to listen out for hubby in case he needs me when his pain is bad as we now sleep in separate rooms. Thanks so much for your comment though.

  11. Oh, what an awful situation. As others have said, keep notes, photos, videos etc. and pass on to the Police, Council and anyone else you can think of. Also, ask (nice) neighbours to do the same. The more people complain, the more notice will be taken. And please, for the baby's sake, contact Social Services. I hope things are resolved soon for you. xx
