Having moved in to our new flat around the end of March this year with my Mrs and two kids(3 and 9)we have received nothing but noise complaints from
the downstairs neighbor.
Even when we were just viewing the flat before coming to a decision he approached us and informed us as to how we would not find the accommodation
suitable as it suffered from dampness and loud sounds from the immersion heater feeder tanks in the roof. Generally he tried to put us off with his
lies and bullcrap, the flat was fine and we thought nothing of the matter and just assumed he was an overzealous nosy little fellow.
The first week we arrived he was up at the door complaining how we went to the toilet forty times a night (he counted???), how he could hear word for
word me and my Mrs having a conversation, how the children could be herd walking up and down the hall day and night and other completely crazy stuff
all beyond the scope of any reasonable persons ability to control.
In an attempt to resolve the mans madness i stupidly gave him my phone number and requested he call us personally if and when he experienced these
alleged noise issues, a few days later he called up around 11am, spoke to my partner, telling her he could hear all the thing we got up to in the
bedroom while having sex. How he could hear us stopping and starting, changing position and the like, how he could hear her moaning and generally
other perverted garbage that no decent Man in his right mind should ever think appropriate to discuss with a woman!
I wanted to go down to his door right there and then and explain to the sex pest pervert in typical Glaswegian fashion exactly what he had just done
and why it was completely inappropriate, probobly by breaking his nose in a few places but realized that this was probobly his intention to begin
He then graduated to calling the Police claiming he could hear loud TV and music into the early hours of the morning. The Police have attended
according to him on numerous occasions, about 30 since we moved in but have only ever came to my door around 4 times and on every occasion Police
determined there was no reasonable noise disturbance.
Yesterday around 5pm there was a knock at the door and again it was the Police who asked me if i had contacted them as to any noise disturbance, i
informed them no and enlightened then as to the problems we have experienced from the fellow below since we have moved in. Turned out he had called
regarding the kids making noise while sitting quietly in the living room playing Minecraft on Xbox(not noisy) while eating there dinner. Again the
Police included in there report that there was no untoward noise issue and as usual quietly apologized for the inconvenience and left pointing out
that there was always one idiot in any close.
During the last few months we have been in contact with the housing making then aware of the situation, they have also been given access to any Police
reports made, all of which according to the housing officer have been in our favor and reflect the neighbors crazy unwarranted noise complaints for
what they are but still the guy persists in calling Police and housing with his endless complaints that need to be investigated because that's there
I'm at the end of my terror and really cannot afford to move again, was just wondering if anyone had any advice as to how to resolve the situation?
Peacefully if possible as teaching him the error of his ways Man style would just be playing into his hands really. Not that he does not deserve a
good slap for talking to my Mrs in such a manner and generally making our life's hell down to his unwarranted, unreasonably demands.
