Buddy in my younger years i would have abducted the foolish swine, tossed him in the boot, and drove a good few miles away into the Scottish hills(Campsies). Smacked him around a little then dumped the thud with no shoes leaving him to make his own way home. But that's before mobile phones and CCTV were so prevalent and i had no children back then. In this day of age all that violence would achieve is me getting charged and possibly not being bailed to my home address hence the reason i need to box clever somewhat.

Trust me if i thought a tire iron cold solve the problem i would have stuck one where the sun don't shine by now.

a reply to: andy06shakeIt seems to me then he is playing mind games and is getting his rocks off doing it. He more than likely has a very low self esteem and is using whoever lives in that flat aa a way of boosting it. All I can say is it is your word against his. I'm really not saying hit him with a tire iron. I'm saying is don't play his game. Don't feed him. But if worse comes to worse you may have to move or confront him. Make sure you have a friend with you as a witness. You live your life don't let him live it for you. I hope you understand where I am coming from. I wish you the best.

Oh I understand the theory I just thought over the floor rather than under it would be simpler especially in a rental.
I live in a 102 year old house. I've found all manner of weird stuff during repairs .
Newspapers, a cup up in a chimney. A recipe with ingredients I never heard of like rich milk and salsify behind an old metal kitchen cabinet.
Anyway the OP installed carpet and the codger is still griping.

First of all, sorry you got stuck with the moron. Personally, I'd let him keep calling the police - if the police cannot find anything wrong every time they get called, then eventually they may pull the "ok, we have a cop car coming soon" (and not even send the trooper out).

I've always lived in upstairs apartments, and the one time someone complained that I was "walking loudly", management reminded them that the building was old, so creaks, groans, and the occasional loud noise would happen.

In your neighbor's case, I'd also engage in a bit of mischief - Assuming he has super hearing, I'd get recordings of whispering (like the kind they use in horror films), and make sure it carries through either a common wall or an uncarpeted section (right above his bed?). After the recording has been running, I'd have someone turn off the whisper recording once I knock on his door, telling him that the whispering was annoying and that he should stop it. That'll bug him for a few days; make him think his place is haunted.

hmm let me think then. Can you trick him over to your lawn, shoot him, plant a stolen gun and drugs on him, and just use stand your ground to settle this?? Planting drugs and guns on a person has worked for decades in the states.... er well maybe more so for the police than citizens. DOH!

The guy has hyperacusis or some similar disorder where he's hypersensitive to benign background noises. You probably don't understand how debilitating a disorder like this can be - common background noises, things that are impossible to control, are flagged by the brain as a 'threat' and activate the person's fight or flight response.

This is quite possibly true. It could be tested by playing recordings of unusual sounds at moderate volume in specific parts of the property and subtlety questioning him to see if he heard.

A blind guy I used to busk with could tune into different conversations in a crowded, noisy place. After a few drinks he'd sit there making odd comments that didn't seem to make sense, until you realised he was adding little bits to various conversations for his own amusement.

Alternatively he could just be an attention seeker with eavesdropping equipment and a masochistic desire to get smacked.

One way or the other violence would not seem suitable in this case.

"Was in the kitchen this morning and could not help but overhear yourself and partner discussing financial matters to the tune of £16,000 quid, so i went into the living room to get peace".

I don't even have £1600 quid nor can ever recall having a discussing in our kitchen regarding £16,000!!!

That sounds like hallucinating rather than hyper-aware hearing or listening devices. If you tell him it didn't happen he'll see you as part of the 'conspiracy'.

We don't have any "stand your ground" laws in Scotland. Christ if you even assault and detain a burglar/mugger past whats considered use of reasonable force you can find yourself being charged.

I'm not wanting to have to hurt the poor fool ether. I mean granted i would take immense pleasure in smacking the guy around a little considering the statements he made to my Mrs but there is also the 15-20 year age gap to consider. It would not be right even if it would feel really good.

Many years ago I lived in an upstairs apartment over an apartment
where an old man lived.He complained all the time about any noise
that I would make.My living room was over his bedroom and that
caused a lot of problems too.
It had gotten to the point where I was not allowed to wear shoes in
my apartment.I had to tiptoe around my apartment in order to appease
that old man.To add insult to injury he actually hit on me a couple of times.
I moved out at the end of my lease and a few weeks later he was
arrested for pointing a shotgun at the police.I heard that his family
put him in a home.

just to point out :

you have included some pretty specific details of the case - that while each is insignificant as a whole - they tie you and these threads to your case

when a situation has devolved to the mess you describe - google is not your friend - and your neighbour is likley to be using it

just a warning from south of the wall
