Being social can be fun especially when family and friends visit; however your ‘fun’ can be a nightmare to others regardless where you live.
A great way around this is to talk to your neighbors especially if you live in an apartment and just let them know that you are having a few friends round and may cause some noise; it’s an ideal way to get to know your neighbors as well.
Obviously if your idea of a get together involves loud music, offensive language, fights, property damage, let alone causing a mess whether this is contained within the property or spills out into communal areas….. think again!
Those of you who are Landlords, just remember that regardless who’s in your property, it is still your responsibility to ensure that the Clauses within your Lease are adhered to, to ensure you don’t become in breach of your Lease.
If you are experiencing sleepless nights then there are some steps you can take:
1) Start a relationship with your neighbours and talk to each other if you have a problem.
2) Use a mediation service to talk through the problems if talking to each other hasn’t worked.
3) Contact your local authority to investigate your complaint under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
4) Take legal action.
It is vital that you keep a record of each occurrence including dates, times and details of the occurrence in case evidence is required to support your complaint.
At this unprecedented time we have made some operational changes and have closed our offices. The team are however still here to support you although for the time-being we will need your co-operation to communicate with us by email please.
Given the volumes we know we will not be able to reply immediately but if you could remain patient for the reply if applicable, you will most certainly receive a response but please resist the temptation to send several other emails, it will not only help us manage enquiries but enable us to identify any priority emails relating to emergencies etc
Rest assured we are doing everything we can, working within Government guidelines, to maintain services while at the same time protecting our staff, clients and contractors.
Finally, if we could ask you not to send any paper correspondence to our offices please, and to arrange for any payments to be submitted electronically it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your understanding, look after yourselves and please stay safe.
