Hello everyone! My husband and I have been living in a relatively new estate in Dublin south side for the last two years. It was a new build that is finished pretty well, looks nice. Unfortunately for us, our neighbours are $%&£'s They have a noisy dog who never stops, the gent has some anger issues and likes to shout, he's set up a home gym that he bashes away on every night which causes literally hours of disturbance to us. On top of this, we can hear more normal things like conversations, their water pump and TV. I've asked a few neighbours and they claim they hear these things with their neighbours too. When a neighbour opens or closes a blind, I can actually hear it clearly all over my home!
I've previously lived in various apartments and mid terraces over my years, and even with "bad" neighbours, I've never lived anywhere where I can hear the daily goings-on of a house next door. It's basically like having flatmates, not a neighbouring house! I've spoken to the company who built the house but they are having none of it - they are a bit dodgy, I'd be afraid to name the estate or the company!
Does anyone else live in a new build estate and have these issues? It seems like it's an open secret where I live, and people are afraid to make a big deal out of for fear of never being able to sell their home or being taken to court by the builder!
I think it's sad that such poor quality living is so expensive in this city.
