Noise from another home
Sometimes, noise problems can be resolved informally between neighbours, simply by politely explaining the problem and trying to come to a compromise. However, this informal approach may not always be successful, and some people may not be prepared to speak directly to the person(s) making the noise.
Think about your neighbours when planning to do something very noisy, e.g. having a party or doing some DIY work. Speak to them beforehand and agree reasonable hours - be sympathetic and co-operative if asked by a neighbour to reduce noise.
