Nuisance drunken neighbour is harassing, threatening and frightening off my tenants which is costing me a lot of money.
Can you please help?
I have two flats in a block of 8 flats. Directly above one of my flats is a person that owns his own flat. He doesn’t work and sits at home getting drunk. Over the years he has been responsible for losing me a number of very good tenants because of his behavior. When he is drunk, which is most of the time he is abusive and is threatening and intimidates my tenants.
My letting agent has also witnessed this and has reported it to the police. I have also reported this to the police. However I am told that unless it is reported by the ‘victims’ i.e. the tenants themselves then there is very little action the police can take.
The problem is that the tenants just don’t want to go down this route as they feel it can make it worse. They feel it is easier for them to give notice and to move on.
This nuisance has fallen out with everyone in the block, but specifically seems to target my tenants as he lives directly above mine.
My present tenant loves the flat, but feels that he is being victimised and is nervous. He suffers with anxiety issues and this is not helping him. He has already suggested to the letting agent that if this continues he will have to give notice.
As the nuisance neighbour owns his property I feel I am limited to what action I can take.
Can anyone please advise?
Thanks in advance.
