Am I overreacting? Watch
...To summarise..try ear muffs etc if that doesn't work then ring the council...despite w/e the outcome maybe atleast you know that firstly, you tried talking to them so you haven't purposely tried to cause trouble.
that you said shes not overreacting and its similar to your situation. but her reaction is greater than yours and your situation is worse. so how does that show that shes not overreacting. if anything it does the opposite.
I work full time and love my sleep more than anything. But lately I have been getting more and more irritated by my neighbours.
Every weekend for the past 3 months they have lived here they have let their children play in the garden at ridiculously early times and waking me up when I try to sleep in on the weekends.
Today they let their noisy 3 under 7 children out to play in the garden at 6:45 this morning. In all fairness, my alarm was set for 7 but I don't appreciate being woken up by a child screaming and another singing usher. This has been the situation for far too long and I'm fed up of it. I spoke to the mother this morning politely and explained I work full time and they are noisy when they play, and she started shouting and slammed the door on me.
I'm very tempted to call the council tomorrow and to file a complaint but I'm not sure if I'm over reacting or if anyone else has some suggestions?
I had to suffer with screaming kids next door all day! Do it!
you haven't actually explained as to why you believe I am overreacting. These children scream and shout and argue early in the morning every day. I'm sure if you were woken up by the same chavvy children you would eventually get fed up too.
they are just playing in their garden in the day time, morning yes but its still the day, at a time that is perfectly normal and reasonable to be awake and playing. if they did this at say 4 in the morning I would think you had more of a case.
And once my neighbours had a crazy party well past the curfew time of 11pm or whatever it is and i complained to brent council and they sent some guy to come round and record it. The guy went to neighbours and asked to turn it down but the neighbours didn't listen. I think loads of people on my road complained and something must have happened because they never did it again!
Moral of the story - complaining works! I hate one of my neighbours. They are like rich nigerian oil tycoons or something and don't work and just sit at home making noise all day. They have regular domestic arguments too . police have been called (not by me) on numerous occasions!
You do occasionally read in the paper though of people who have complained to their council about loud music/children playing etc being played regularly between say 10PM and 6AM.

Where the noise being complained about continues after a warning notice has been issued, the local authority officer may enter the dwelling and confiscate the noise making equipment (obstructing confiscation carries a fine of up to £1000).
