Hi I have no contract as I own my own property, the issues I have are with the attached bungalow that has been bought by a landlord about eight years ago and slowly declining in maintanance and upkeep, has had numarous tenents mainly students, which I have no problem with as long as they are considerate during the hours of 23.00 to 8.00.
My issues are with the way the landlord has converted the bungalow and the neglect of the property and garden. This has caused us years of nuiscence, low level noise (due to lack of sound proofing, and accustic dampening within the building, banging of doors, loud music, screaming and shouting etc. our fence has been taken over by brambles and ivy and I am fed up of constantly having to ask the landlord and tennets to be more considerate.
I am at the point of thinking about taking some form of leagal action, but don't know what my rights are.
I understand that as I own the fence I could put in a claim for a new fence due to the damage caused by the brambles etc.
What about the poorly converted bungalow and the constant background noise?
