what does the lease say?
And do you want to stay in the property? Who do you rent from?
Ok. The noise should not be going on. The key is I am afraid the council and I note that they are not taking things seriously. Matters need to be escalated. As if the council agrees with you, and the noise is a deemed a “statutory nuisance” (ie that it is a nuisance under law), they can issue an “abatement notice” which tells your neighbour that unless they stop they will be prosecuted and might end up with a fine of £5,000 for domestic premises. I would invite either your local councillors to come around to your property or the MP. Both have the power to exert considerable pressure on the council. The other option (although some forces are less likely to help) is to contact the police and advise that this is a form of harassment. This too may encourage the LA to act. Happy to discuss but please rate positive. Thanks
