My neighbour’s children are too noisy on their trampoline
Partner Simon Painter answers a reader’s question regarding noisy neighbours, outlining the steps required to make a ‘private nuisance’ claim for the Sunday Times.
This specific case involved a neighbour’s children making noise on a trampoline and playing music, audible despite the reader having installed triple-glazing on her windows.
Simon Painter comments:
‘If all attempts to resolve this have failed, you could make a ‘private nuisance’ claim against the neighbour. To succeed you will need to establish to the court’s satisfaction that the noise is causing a ‘substantial’ interference with your ‘ordinary’ use of the land. Useful evidence could include contemporaneous notes of when the squeaking occurs, how long it lasts and the effect it is having on you, together with notes of the requests you make of your neighbour.’
