    I have just had to chuckle, We are getting all our windows and doors replaced as they are wooden & worn. Our neighbours who we haven't spoken to as they are a bit odd (ie have avoided any eye contact or interaction since we moved in in June) have just complained about the noise?? I laughed as Mr Window chap said what do you want me to use a rubber hammer? ๐Ÿ˜† I think it is a bit unreasonable to complain about people having improvments done in the daytime.

    Some people just complain because they can. They'll feel better having had their say, no matter what the outcome…

    I had a couple move in next door for a year. Said hello to them on their first day in the house. Conversation was very hard. They never spoke again. Not even a good morning when our paths crossed at 5am when going to work. **** strange some folks.

    Yup its pretty unreasonable of them. Some people are **** weird.

    One of our old neighbours accused my brother of leaving smashed glass in a shared car-park (amongst other things) – they were busted when one of our other neighbours told us that they had seen the woman go and put broken glass out in the car-park a few days earlier!!!!

    hey our neighbours female (supposed*) partner hides from my Mrs, rather than have to say hello to her (just 'hello', nothing else). She has literally backed away from he front door rather than come out when my g/f's around. No idea what she feels my g/f has done to her, being as my g/f's a nurse by trade she supposedly has great ppl skills.

    * another story really not worth getting into.

    Similar dodgy neighbour issue here.

    We have the misfortune of having a smallish shared courtyard area out the back of the house which is used for garage access on the far side. Apparently in the deeds for all 4 houses who share this courtyard it states this access should be unfettered.

    We have a 16 x 6 ft 'garden' (the smallest of the 4 houses) and the courtyard is considerably bigger than this, so we made use of it as it's private.

    Our neighbours, who are recently retired & thus spend lots more time at home have realised over the summer what a jolly nice time Mrs Mascy & our 4year old son have in this courtyard. Games, practicing riding his bike, outrageous & noisy things like laughing etc.

    They've taken a dislike to this practice, despite very rarely ever using the courtyard for anything at all, and after a disappointing meeting where they told me they didn't want games to be played there they've mounted a couple of red signs on the wall of the courtyard saying children are not permitted to play in this area.

    Nothing in my deeds about that, although we are now trying to move so I'm keen not to rock the boat right now. They **might** be getting them back after we move in pieces though.

    We used to have an old bloke living next door who had too much time on his hands and moaned about everything. He was off work permanently due to a dodgy heart.

    One day I got into a blazing row with the chap. I told him the sooner his ticker packed up and they carry him out feet first, the better.

    It packed up about two months later and they did indeed carry him out feet first.

    Result! Problem solved.

    Had a similar thing, neighbour was a right misserable git and used to beat his missus and son, cleaning my car with the vacum one day he started hurling abuse at me from inside his house (didnt have the guts to come out and have a pop), so I lost my rag after 3 years of crap from him, pulled up his picket fence and threw it at his window. Long storey cut short Police gave me a ticking off and he never bothered me or my family again and moved out 3 months later.

    Came back from an enduro to the house in Pontywaun and the neighbours are having a full scale punch up in the street. Husbands going at it and wives as well with everyone out watching. As one of my mates in the van quipped "Oh look a cabaret"

    It all finished evens with a husband from one couple winning and the opposite way round with the women. Trouble is I got on well with both of them and life got a bit awkward for a bit.

    Mascy – I would just remove the signs – or ignore them. He haws no right to do that.

    Back to the OP – that really is unreasonable. Working week, daytime. Just tell him to go report it to the police if he has a problem with it.

    ๐Ÿ˜† Nowt as queer as folk is there?! They are v odd characters to be honest. My Mrs said they knocked on the wall when our little 'un (3 months old now) was crying as he had a cold and has started teething. Bearing in mind they have 3 kids ๐Ÿ˜† Ah well one of those things I guess. I am deffo getting a detached house next rung up on the property ladder.

    They sound proper mentalist.

    ๐Ÿ˜† Next time they do it, when they have finished shout "aww come on i'n not there yet". I bet it goes quiet ๐Ÿ˜€ It worked for me when my neighbour in the singley block (RAF accomodation) was at it. He looked rather embarassed the next time I saw him ๐Ÿ˜†

    Makes me realise how lucky I am with all our neighbours.
    We all share our driveways, lend each other tools etc.
    'cos we're the biking couple in the road, people are always asking for advice about their cycles and borrowing our pump.
    Everyone looks out for the older folk and they in turn watch our houses in the daytime.

    When I was very young we had a neighbour who was convinced that the old hedge between our two properties was in the wrong place and anything in a meter wide strip along our side of the hedge was his, if we planted anything in it he'd come and rip it up. (in fact it later turned out the hedge was in the wrong place, but to his benefit rather than ours)

    Anyway he was habitually unpleasant for the short time that we lived there.

    When we came to move out he even launched a tirade about how the removal truck would cast a shadow on his house and positioned his cars to prevent it from parking near either of our houses.

    Only 30 mins ๐Ÿ˜ฎ poor girl she's being shortchanged , don't they do anything after foreplay?

    Crikey if that was all mrs carlos got she'd leave. ( and no I don't think I'm some kind of stud! )

    and male Kit…

    30 minutes isn't the endurance form of bumping uglies

    next time they are at it, knock on the door clutching a whip, some handcuffs, a large bottle of poppers and a collection of specialist DVDs and offer to show them how to do it properly

    30 mins is the shortest time, first night they moved in was about an hour

    and quite frankly an hour of that level of workout sounds like endurance to me, fortunately the frequency and duration is dropping off as the novelty of screwing in a new flat wears off!

    Neighbours… ugh.

    Our immediate neighbours are great, but two doors down is a nightmare.

    Always in with the big guns, never able to come to a resolution over any minor dispute. Consequently, they undermine their own position by demanding silly things, a bit like a adult shaped children having a hissy fit.

    To OP. When would they rather you did it? The middle of the night? It's like logic and reason are alien concepts. Weirdos.

    Mascy, put up your own sign "no old people permitted in this area"

    Or " No signs to be placed hear"
    Oh the irony, Alanis Morrisette would be so proud.

    nb. I do know how to spell, btw.

    Ah a topic dear to my heart this one. We live at the top of a shared driveway, theres a sort of turning area outside our house which is actually our land and the title deeds for all the other houses have a small right of way marked on it. Love it when people park right in front of the garage, dump cars in the middle of the driveway etc and then get all upset when me or the other neighbours have to go and hunt them down to get out. Cannot fathom how you would think its alright to do that ?
    The bloke next door takes the biscuit though. As has been documented on this forum a while back he bought the house without doing whats called a LIM which shows all planning consents etc. 5 years ago we put a huge deck on the side and back of our house and also in that consent was us changing the roof pitch. We planned an extension out the front which we didn;t actually need to notify them of but thought being neighbourly we would as they had just moved in. Anyhoo he went off, standing shouting and swearing telling me i had no right etc etc. I pointed out we had every right and that he must have known the roof was changing and giong to block a small part of his view..from his downstairs….toilet and study. At that point we went on about how his newborn son needed to be able to see the view (WTF? My wife laughed out loud). I asked him if he had checked the LIM as it was granted almost 4 years ago and he then admitted no he hadn;t. You have no 'right' to a view esp if you don;t check stuff like that. Anyway since then he has been an absolute nightmare bnot just to me but to the other 5 houses. We had a slip on the drive which we needed to fix with a retaining wall etc looked like it would be 2K per house as its a shared driveway. He refused to pay as he said that he didn;t see why he shoudl etc. Anyway we managed to fix it at no cost to anyone else and made a point of letting him know , he then complained that it wasnt; done properly etc etc when in fact it was the council that eventually did it. He's nuts, and english which I think is the root cause because he is a whingeing pommie pr1ck :D. I've let him park his landrover on my section up until a about two months ago, oh yeah and my skip driver had a standoff with the breastfeeding lady who had dumped her car in the driveway when he was delivering a skip to my place, i looked out and it was about 1/2" above her car roof and she was stating that it was her right to abandon her car wherever she feels like it as 'there is a lady there who can't breastfeed you know'. Anyway, i told him to move his landy as he was being unreasonable and I wanted full access to my garages. He got his lawyer involved who came and spoke to me and we went and looked at the boundary marker and the title deed. "Ah yeah I see what you mean, he shouldn't really be there shoudl he?" says the lawyer. Indeed. He then sent ME the bill hahahahaha I went round and asked him why he felt i shoudl pay for it and he's such a spineless little **** that he just looked at me and said nothing. I handed him the bill back and haven;t heard from him since. I got his landy clamped last week which went down well. Its like sport for me now and is stress free ๐Ÿ˜€

    I feel beter for writing that all down as well. Thing is, i'm sure he;s a nice guy but by god he has now p1ssed every neighbour off individually so when they need a hand with anything – no chance. Thing is the other 4 houses are all really nice and we look out for each other.

    And on balance (god i can;t leave this alone now!) they had a baby a few months back so went sent them a card and some flowers, you know, as you do. So its not like we're mean or anything, its just bizarre. I still fail to understand why he thought having a view over our roof from the downstairs toilet was a big deal. The other small item was when he thought we were doing the roof he asked me for 50k as 'compensation' for the devaluation of his house. I wee'd a little bit in my shorts laughing at that one and he looked a bit sulky.

    We bought our current house from a couple in their late 70's, 'we don't get on with the neighbours so we are moving' fair enough I thought, next door are also retired and it gives a bit of security to know that they'll always be twitching the curtains when somethings going on outside etc.
    Boy do they like to twitch, I only have to come home from work at night and there out with moans about something, I parked a transit van outside recently I was using for work and they claimed it blocked their view 'what of the houses opposite? get real'

    Anyway to cut one short, their daughter split from her 2nd husband and moved in with her 2 kids (bout 13 & 7). So there is now 5 in a 3 bed semi, not to bad you might think but as the teen likes his door slamming and the old guy places organ music first thing on a Sunday and the kids in general are tear aways and **** LOUD all day and night and the 7year old uses the settee and beds as a trampoline the noise is unreal. I don't need the volume on my TV sometimes I can listen to theres through the walls and just leave the picture on.
    I like to go out on a Saturday night and leave Queens of the Stone age on repeat on the CD player uncomfrotably loud just to get my own back

    They built a conservatory on the back of the house last year, 5x4mtrs right on the boundary line, high as Canary Wharf. Now as were on a slight slope downwards , there house is 2 feet above mine so when they are in the conservatory they can look right in to my french doors and living room. So i built a fence, and boy did they hit the roof. Spoils our view, blocks our light, we can't clean the windows etc etc. I love were I live, but I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't move again.

    Customer had problems with children climbing over her rear wall,and damageing her plants etc,so i suggested she put treacle on top of wall,next day she went into a local shop,and the local womens mafia where discussing an evil woman down the road who had covered her wall with treacle,and their kids had got it on their clothes,and how to wash it off.
    She decided to make a speedy exit.

    I have lovely neighbours!

    Years ago I had one who asked my not to park in front of his house incase Patrick Moore came to visit – apparently he came to visit my neighbour once but thought he had visitors as there was a car outside….

    There there was the one who tried to stop me doing an extension but she'd told me a few years before that she had wanted to do the same extension to her house but later realised that she couldn't afford it.
