‘My entitled neighbours bang on my floor and tell me I’m too noisy – I’m fed up’

Neighbors may be a fantastic supporting pillar of the community. However, things may get complicated when your neighbours are overbearing or continuously snooping on you and your property. If you live in a flat or an apartment, you’re surely aware that the walls appear to be made of paper. All your neighbor needs to do is breathe, and you may feel as though your walls are collapsing. It’s not their fault, and if the folks next door, upstairs, or downstairs aren’t being irritating with their noise levels, you’ll generally simply put up with it and be tolerant. Read the story to know what this man experienced with his neighbour and what do you think he should do?

I started renting a flat(UK) a year and a half ago, and since then I have probably stayed in the flat for 3 weeks altogether, in those 3 weeks even after being as quiet and considerate as possible my downstairs neighbours are still causing problems and banging on the ceiling all the time, there is little to no sound proofing and the floorboards are extremely creaky so it’s difficult for both sides but they are being so unreasonable and banging on the ceiling just expecting me to go whenever they command, sometimes I will get home before they get back from work and sleep and then once I wake up they realise I’m home they turn their TV off and stay silent for ages, almost like they’re trying to listen to what I’m doing?? How can I explain to these people that I have every right to be there and they cannot control things outside of their own flat? If somebody else was to move in they would be in all the time and causing a lot more noise than I am! But still they have a problem.

Any advice on how to deal with these obviously very entitled unreasonable people who will just be shooting themselves in the foot if I was to move out of there for good. Thanks
