Noise nuisance

When living in an apartment it’s important to consider those living around you.

If you are subject to noise nuisance it can become very stressful, you can lose sleep and feel frustrated in your home. If you are disturbed by a noisy neighbour make sure you politely speak to them regarding the noise, as they may not be aware they are making any. If you have spoken to your neighbour but the noise continues please feel free to contact us if we are your management company and if they let the property we could inform the landlord who may be able to help. If noise continues-keep a log of the days and times that you are being disturbed and contacting the local council environmental health department can also help.

Living in a leasehold property there will be certain terms of the lease which will help protect you from noise nuisance such as

-No noise after 11pm or before 7am

-No pets

-No instruments

Any one breaking the terms of their lease could be at risk of losing their home

Please all be considerate to each other for a nice environment to live

Communication is key

We use an extensive check list to check sites are up to scratch and we try to be as proactive as possible.

There are times in between site visits and contractor visits when part of your communal area may get damaged or break.

Just a reminder to all residents that if you do see a fault please let us know and don’t presume another resident has told us.

You can call us on 01384 573637

Or email customerservices@kt-management.co.uk

Working together for a safe, clean environment to live.

Safety in the home

We like to think of our home as a place of comfort and safety. It is easy to become complacent in our home surroundings, so here are some simple reminders of how to keep you and your family safe in the home-

  • Don’t leave items around on the floor that can become a trip hazard
  • Make sure none of your electrical items have any wires exposed
  • Have gas appliances checked every 12 months
  • Make sure all areas of your home are well lit
  • Regularly check your smoke alarm
  • Wipe up any wet spills in the kitchen or bathroom area to prevent slips
  • Check ID of any callers at the door, answer the door with a door chain if you have one
