The Freeholder to my property lives upstairs – it is a 1930’s build House that was split into 2 one bedroom flats some time ago, and my tenants will of course have the (my) lower flat.
The problem is I keep losing tenants after a couple of months or so simply because I have what seems to be this crazed elderly lady who is hell-bent on being as rude and noisy as possible. By noisy I mean occasionally opening her upper front window to hurl abuse at me should I happen to wonder into my property and more so, at any tenant. She in addition makes the most horrendous banging noises on a regular basis. I can only think she is jumping up and down at full blast and there are now slight cracks appearing that I would most certainly put down to her persistent ‘thunder jumps’.
In fact her banging/noise coupled with her general verbal abuse is so intense at times that it is a somewhat frightening. My most recent tenant, a hardened Builder by trade when he first moved in, was actually shaking when I came along as a response to his urgent call on the matter. He is worried for his 5 year daughter who is due to join him along with his partner shortly.
The police have now been called no less then 4 times and all have spoken quite firmly to her and each time she has promised to change her ways. The police are reluctant to prosecute or at least be more firm for two reasons as I understand it:
1) She is elderly.
2) She seems to have some serious psychological issues, possibly dementure or something associated.
It’s absolutely impossible to communicate with her in any form or shape. The only people she opens the door to are the Police.
Any similar experiences anyone?
