Nuisance is a tort claim, which can be brought into your local court or tribunal.

Your neighbours are playing loud music from 6 AM to 10 PM, and of course this will be harmful to any neighbour. Noise pollution is a real fact, and this is what is occurring to the adjoining property.

In raising a claim of nuisance, it is recommend that you raise this claim firstly in the local tribunal as this way the case can be run by you without the need for a lawyer.

The list that you apply under is the Civil list of the tribunal.

Also some councils will monitor noise pollution as well. I recommend that you if you have not done so already that you contract your local council and raise this matter with the relevant department of the council. The local council will have the ability to issue penalty to the neighbour. However, keep in mind the tribunal will provide you a more solid outcome on the mater.

Would you like to consider this option ?
