I did post on another thread not realizing it was over a year old, I'm hoping it's okay to post here.
Since the lock down the situation with the family upstairs has gotten worse and it's affecting my mental health.
I live on my own in a Victorian house that's converted into flats above shops. I'm on the first floor, they are above me in a 2 bed. It was initially a bunch of young men that moved in and I think only 1 of them worked. This was last yr. I work full time, long hrs, so I'm hardly ever in.
When they moved in, they took the lock off the main door and never replaced it, when I asked about it, the one who speaks English said he'll sort it out, he never did.
It's a 2 bed flat but there's at least 4 or 5 people living there, they make a lot of noise, There is zero soundproofing and so I hear everything, they talk loudly, yell out their window, smoke and stink out my flat. They leave black bags of household waste outside on the fire escape and throw away their old furniture and scrap downstairs, the place looks like landfill.
Recently, since the lock down, they've brought children and their partners to live in the flat and the noise is unbearable. I'm working from home, so there's no escape.
They let the children run up and down, kick a football about indoors, scream and shout all day. I understand, we are on lock down and the children need to play. During the day it's not too terrible, I can get out and go for long walks.
However, they ten to do things late at night, especially after 9 pm, and the noise goes on till about 3-4 am in the morning. The children love to bang on my ceiling, It sounds like they're climbing up and jumping down on their floor, they kick a ball about for hours and hours, the noise is terrible and the banging is frightening because it feels like the person is going to come through my ceiling.
I've got ear plugs but I can still hear the banging and when the kids are running around up there.
I managed to find out who their Landlord is and wrote to him because I'm afraid to say anything to the people. Since I did this, he must have said something to them because the man came banging on my door, ranting and raving that I reported him to the Landlord. The noise has gotten much worse and they're having visitors over at the weekend, all of them up there behaving like animals.
Sorry for the long winded post but I'm at my wits end because I'm not getting any sleep and have no peace. I can't afford to move at moment. Anybody have any ideas or know what else can I do, please help me.
