3 tips to deal with…
Noisy next-door neighbours
1 We’ve all been there – and especially if it’s affecting your sleep, it can drive you potty.
Ranting and raving is tempting, but try to approach your neighbour calmly and politely. You’ll find most people respond better to a polite verbal request than a grumpy note of complaint through their letterbox.
2 Explain clearly what your concern is, and why it’s causing a problem. Your neighbour may not have a clue that they’re being a nuisance and disrupting your happy home.
3 Remember that you’re seeking a solution and not a hostile stand-off. You still have to live next door to these people. And no-one wants to be at war with their neighbours!
