Violent intimidating neighbors
They have had telephones bugged, know people within the employment/unemployment services (I am currently going through this service so am well aware of what is going on), and it seems very difficult to get this unpleasant practice(s) stopped.
Is there anywhere a person can get support and for such behaviour to end?
It also can be used to curb the use of residential premises for illegal or immoral purpose, including as a drug den or brothel.
If your neighbour has trouble keeping their dog’s toilet habits under control then this becomes an issue for the Dogs (Fouling of Land) Act 1996.
Whatever the incitement, if the actions of your neighbours are making your life a misery and they are not responsive to polite requests to stop then you need to be aware of what rights are available to you.
As a particularly common grievance, excessive noise falls under the control of two main pieces of legislation.
Neighbours that target you personally with their behaviour, such as through verbal abuse, dumping litter in your garden, deliberately causing obstruction or any other efforts intended to make your home life a misery, then this then becomes an issue for the Protection from Harassment Act 1977.
They can also confiscate noise-making devices, such as the TV or stereo, and issue a fine.
If your neighbours are engaging in anti-social behaviour that doesn’t fall within the remit of the noise or environmental protection acts then the Housing Act 1996 might prove a valuable ally.
Under this law, you can appeal to the High Court or County Court to grant an injunction to stop neighbours from "engaging or threatening to engage in conduct causing or likely to cause a nuisance or annoyance." This could include neighbour behaviour deemed violent, destructive or disruptive.
It is the council’s decision to implement any preventative action and so the grievance should be raised with them for their consideration.
If you can reliably anticipate your neighbour’s noisy pursuits then alternatively you could invite the local authority over to witness the act.
I now want to try a some how move or get transferred but right I see that very unlikely to happen.. #unheard x What if those in the neighbourhood doing the bullying have people they know in the local authority/other official places, and the actual bullies (neighbours) sit back and get those in authority to intimidate a person?
