Noisy Neighbour

Our neighbour is a nightmare, he's got a new TV which he has in the bedroom and he's got a game, or something that has continuous noises, that he's playing at top volume around the clock. It's so loud and the new neighbours, who have moved in beside him, have been banging on the wall for hours, but he's paying them any attention. We've been banging on the ceiling too but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions? Grrrrrrrr.

I am afraid I have the same problem Happy Either going up to him and asking him to turn it down a bit? or if that fails telling the landlord, but I have done neither. I just put up with it as I am a wuss

I feel for you both,we lived in private accomadation,all was fine until 7 people moved in they made so much noise i told them,they did not speak english so i told there landlord he thought it rather amusing(mind you when i started ringing him at 2.00am in the morning he did not like it)my great landlord who had cancer was doing everything he could he was going to pay a solicitor to sort it.They would shout,slam doors,play music in the end i got EH involved,i had a breakdown due to it.We have since moved and have lovely quiet neighbours now.

Well the guy has gone from upstairs and now we have a woman who is more noisy and more often too. She walks like she is an elephant, constantly moves furniture around, wakes me up about 4 times a night, running from one side of the room to the other. Wears her shoes indoors while she tramps across the floor(shoes indoors, is a big no no in Iceland as it's usually mucky/wet/snowy outside, so they just take them off as they walk in) She had a party Saturday night and while I can just about put up with the stupid music, her guests were tapping on the floor in time to the music, now the floor is so thin I can hear their conversations, so you can imagine what constant tapping does to me! GRRRR

Jany Grant42 that is bad that it went so far to cause you to have a breakdown Happy

As we are the foreigners in this situation, I don't wanna cause hassle.

Our noisy neighbours were Lithuanians,they are still there now,every birthday was a party until about 4.am or longer,some have respect for others some dont,i also dont want to cause hassle,i am getting over it slowly,we have been moved now for nearly 2 years and its like i have a new life i go out shopping and my hubby used to do it as i would not go out because of the noise and if i went to the shop they were always outside,my doctor had to write a note which helped us move.I was told by envirollmental Health that if its disturbing you during the day as well as night you can report it,i never knew that for a start.

Yeh I was told by my boss, that too much noise after 11pm on weekdays and you can report them, but as I said, I don't want to cause hassle, if it was really getting me down, I would call their landlord. The way it is over here, the buildings are so old, so pretty much everyone is in the same situation.
