Finally an Injunction then Breached …

My health has deteriorated, we cannot enjoy our home, do not invite friends or family to visit, nor am I able to do my job as effectively as I should because I am always tired. We no longer trust the authorities. ‘Claire’ of North London

“We are Council tenants and have suffered so much. Our neighbour makes late night noise, has threatened us, cut down our tree branches, damaged our property, left rubbish on our doorstep, fails to maintain her garden, and smokes dope which seeps into our flat. Fighting and shouting above our head, verbal abuse and false accusations have been going on for six years.”

‘Claire’ and her partner finally got evidence in the form of recordings of late night noise and, thanks to a hard working ASB officer at the Local Authority, got an injunction. But the Injunction was soon broken. “The court still does nothing to our neighbour who is very good at acting hard done by.”

“My health has deteriorated, we cannot enjoy our home, do not invite friends or family to visit, nor am I able to do my job as effectively as I should because I am always tired. We no longer trust the authorities.” Initially ‘Claire’ and her partner asked politely if the neighbour could stop making noise. They asked for mediation and she refused. They have spent 6 years recording diaries and reporting her behaviour yet their message to other victims is: Do not give up and try to get evidence.
