I completely relate to the letter about the neighbours from hell (YOU Say, 27 Sep- tember). I live in a small complex and until recently my experience was the same.
Complaints to the owners, tenants, body corp and police all fell on deaf ears. Tenants have stolen my washing, damaged the complex and damaged my car, and the nonstop noise and violence have been horrific.
We really lack mindfulness and respect of others. It’s shameful you have to stay locked indoors and live in fear. Thank goodness these people have all moved out. Now I have neighbours with small children who are quite considerate. HASSLED, EAST LONDON
