  • Hello

    I am sorry you are feeling so down , there is nothing worse if you are not happy where you are living

    I have a shared alleyway to and on that one I have to be honest I think to leave it free so both can get access to it is better , can you not take your bike into your back garden ?

    The drain , if they are saying it smells can you not get the Council out to it ?

    Then the Council will either correct if it needs something doing to it or they will say it is fine which if they complain again you can say well I have had the Council out and they can find nothing wrong with it !

    Not sure why they are moaning over the fence again if it is a council house and there is anything wrong with the fence they could always get it fixed if they are not happy

    I know when neighbors have pets it can cause issues but as long as your dog is not barking all day then people have to accept it unless a dog is barking really early in a morning , late at night or all day then it would be unacceptable

    Could you put in for a move or a swap ?

    Could you phone the Neighborhoods Team and let them know you need support or is it the Tenancy Support team I am sure you call it that again could help support you :-)

    If you think your neighbors are been un reasonable then start listing every time you feel they are doing so , what happened , what was said , days , times etc and after a few months you can hand that into the Council and again they should help

    Could you go and talk with your Doctor about how you are struggling and how it is making you feel , they could possibly get you some support to as I know it is not easy been a single parent especially if you have no support

    I hope one way or another you get this sorted but please there is no shame in asking for help so I would really be letting people know that I needed it :-)

  • Hi there, we all have to live our lives in the home we live in and it makes it very unpleasant if your neighbours are giving you a hard time. If you feel you don't want to be there anymore can you put in for an exchange? There is usually a list you can put your name too. Also you could put up cards in the areas you'd like to live asking for an exchange. Try not to let it get you down, you don't have to put up with it!! You should also make a note of what they are doing and saying to you. It sounds intimidating and you don't need that.you can talk to someone from the company you rent from and they will be able to give you advice. You just need to try take charge of your situation to make it change. I'm not saying it will be all easy but hopefully it will lead to you being in a happy place, good luck🙏🏻
