Respecting your neighbours

You can show respect for your neighbours by considering how your behaviour may impact them.

You should:

  • Be aware that DIY and other noisy household jobs (including everyday jobs like using the vacuum cleaner) could impact those around you, particularly if you’re living in a flat or maisonette where noise travels easily
  • Let your neighbours know if you’re planning to have a party in your home and limit the noise between the hours of 11pm and 7am
  • Place noisy household appliances such as televisions, radios and speakers away from adjoining walls and limit the noise between 11pm and 7am
  • Avoid loud and excessive slamming of doors
  • Park your vehicles considerately


When you have visitors

You’re responsible for the behaviour of your family, visitors and pets (you require written permission to keep a pet in your home). If anybody visiting your home causes nuisance or harassment to other people, MTVH may consider taking action against you.
