Nuisance neighbours - dispute resolution

If you feel your neighbours are causing excessive disturbance to your life or if you are involved in a dispute with your neighbour where you have been accused of causing a nuisance, our housing law solicitors can help. We have extensive experience in resolving nuisance disputes between neighbours. Speak to our expert legal team on 0203 816 9282, we offer 30 minute appointments from £150.

Most people in the UK live close to others and we all have to expect that the people living around us will cause problems for us from time to time. This could be through noise, infringement on our property or a lack of privacy. However, the law only expects people to put up with a certain level of nuisance from their neighbours. In some cases residents who are experiencing disruptive behaviour can require their landlord to apply for an order from the Court so that their neighbours change their behaviour.
