Noisy neighbours have cost me a tenant – how should I handle this.?Make Text Bigger
Noisy neighbours have cost Graeme a tenant and he’s looking for advice from other landlords who have had a similar problem. Graeme wrote.
“I have a terraced house in the Manchester area and have had an excellent tenant for the last year. Three weeks ago new neighbours moved in next door. Apparently they are constantly arguing and blasting loud music late into the night keeping my tenant awake.
She has now handed her notice in because she can’t stand it any longer.
I think the new neighbours are tenants, not owners, so I can try to find out who the owners and/or letting agents are and formalise a complaint – perhaps their tenancy can be terminated.
I could of course report it to Environmental Health. But equally, I don’t want to antagonise these people so that the problem is even worse.
I am a bit concerned that my property could become unlettable. I don’t live in the area, so at present haven’t been able to speak to any of the other neighbours yet to establish really how bad it is.
However, I would be pleased to hear from any other landlords as to how they resolved this sort of issue.
