East Lothian Council

Neighbour issues

Whether you are living in a Council house or any other kind of property, the Council can help you if you are having problems with your neighbours, such as:

  • constant loud noise or disturbance from a neighbour
  • drunken disorder
  • intimidating or threatening behaviour
  • violence
  • vandalism and graffiti 

Minor problems may be resolved by letting your neighbour know that they are disturbing you. It is important to keep a detailed note of the date, time and nature of any incidents, as this may be required later.

Details of more formal action that the Council can take are available in the section 'Dealing withith Anti-social behaviour'.
