Has anybody on here ever applied for an injunction ?  I have done everything, council, police, solicitor but nothing has changed.  I did mediation but they wouldn't do it.......................would you believe, on a police officers visit they lied and said it was ME who didn't do the mediation, yet they know that isn't true and I have a letter to prove it.  SCREAM OUT LOUD. I am stunned by the way people behave even after all the years I have put up with it I still can't get my head around it.  I am just hoping the mediation I did will  support my application for an injunction. 

 

Any advice you can give ?

You never will, you're not supposed too, it's just the way they are, its a kind of mental dysfunction,... that being a prat is good, so lets be a big prat

 

anyway, an injunction for what?

For 14 years I've heard, trust us we'll fix it, but I am still waiting filled with empty promises.
14 years of my CCTV, of nfh causing criminal damage, abuse,lies, assault, and not one conviction,why?
If the Law is the same for everyone, why does the outcome depend on who you are?

Hi,

 

Sorry for delay in replying fullcircle., 

 

My neighbour is an alcoholic.   For years I just couldn't work out the behaviour, just thought it was their personality then realised it's as it today, all day long you can hear the cans popping open and as the day progresses the music reaches such levels in the garden I can even hear it with my windows closed.  I dreaded the summer because I knew it was coming. In addition to this my house would shake and vibrate from the surround system so when it wasn't indoors it was outdoors.

 

The neighbour next to them was a huge catalyst in this so eventually I contacted the landlord and thankfully he was great and didn't renew his tenancy but I still have them next door. I got the thumbs up from one of the neighbours (shame they didn't do anything and left it all to me) !

 

Went to CAB to ask for advice on applying  for an injunction but they said they would act for me and contact the council again on my behalf but I feel like I'm flogging a dead horse because you can't compete against an alcoholic.

 

I am hoping when the new tenant move in the other side of them it will have an impact.........................I will be back !

Years ago we bought a house - viewed it on the one day it was silent, as it turned out. And I don't exaggerate. We now think the woman who sold us the house (for 25% less than she'd paid for it but as there was a downturn in the housing market at that tme, we didn't think that was odd) probably bribed the alcoholic next door to be out for the day.

From the day (hour probably) we moved in... nightmare. He was an elderly Irish man, whose family had come to England in the 1950s and had a successful business and he was clearly the black sheep of the family. When his behaviour got impossible to live with, they bought this terraced house and left him there. So he was an 'owner occupier' (or rather his family owned the house) and there was nothing we could do to get him out.

 

He sang, swore and burst into the street screaming abuse (very loud voice, exactly like Ian Paisley) day and night. Once, his drunken pals (all like a load of tramps and in their 50s/60s) smashed down a neighbour's door, thinking it was his. The language and abuse was incredible - no let up. The worst thing was him singing 'Danny Boy' over and over around 2am.

 

We tried the police, an MP (who happened to be an acquaintance so was totally onside), every agency you could imagine but it turned out we could never have got anywhere as he was a registered alcoholic. The police said they couldn't even section him to give us some respite. We were told he'd been sectioned and gone into rehab more than once in the past but always came home, always got drunk. If we spoke to him he was strangely friendly. And very odd. I was scared he was going to rush out into the street one day with a knife. The police told me they could only arrest him if someone got hurt.

 

The worst thing was when I saw him and his creepy little mate once looking out their back window and realised they were staring at my kids' bunny in his hutch in the garden. Next day, I looked out of the window and saw the hutch door hanging open - bunny gone. I remembered a story another neighbour told us about the time he'd decided to make money breeding greyhounds and eventually the RSPCA had found several dogs, dead or dying of distemper, in his shed...  We reckoned he ate the bunny.

 

It broke up our marriage eventually - I couldn't take the stress of it; took myself off at weekends. I hated having friends or family round in case they heard it.

 

This was 14 years ago or so. And one reason why when I got my new neighbours from hell last September, I felt like my life had been turned upside down again.

 

If that neighbour is a registered alcoholic, I can tell you from bitter experience... you have no chance.

I don't think she is registered, if she is neither the police nor council mentioned it. or gave me any indication otherwise.  

 

The only way they could deal with it was saying I harassing them as they can't face reality and deal with their problem.

 

The law has to change, if people can take sellers to court for not declaring nfh then we should be able to claim loss of sale from the nfh when selling.

 

Why is everybody so scared to face these people on a community level.   

 

My neighbours gave me the thumbs up when they saw the notice on door of the tenants I got moved out but didn't do anything to help me.  I said "yes, i deserve a medal, because i done it all by myself" and made it a better place for them.  No help whatsoever!

No one will stand up to NFH- they want a quiet life and don't want to get involved. All that bad people need to be able to flourish is for their behaviour to go unchallenged by 'good' people. Challenging NFH can make things worse. Getting the authorities involved as a last resort can backfire as the authorities hate people who complain and try to discredit them. I've heard that police ignore pleas from councillors. Alcohol is a real problem, the hotter it gets, the more these people drink. The police are busier on hot days, well, their call handlers are anyway... The police told me that they have to take into account that my NFH had been drinking, but I was later told that that is no defence in the law. Alcohol is a big part of our culture- I suspect those who profit from the sale of alcohol are powerful people.
