When we was having trouble with guy below before the anti social lady told me that we would have to move before they would move him if it got that bad. As they moved him three times already. So ok for us to go through all the expense again then...of what we cant really afford anyway. and as usual he gets his own way. But luckily now its all calmed down we ignore him...but yeah he does have mental health problems. His parents dont help either who live round corner..but they dont want him living with them though..he is a grown man in his 40's but has the brain of a child. He does childish things, like jumping out on people for a laugh, taking the cleaners broom and hiding it in the bin on corner. The sort of things a kid would do, not an adult. But if someone does it back to him he dont like it.If your troublesome neighbour has mental health or is not a fully functioning member of society i.e drug use etc then forget about getting any help. They appear to get all the support.
I have had neighbours who have caused no end of stress to others because of their behaviour but alas nothing ever is done about it.
I have been informed that social housing is now increasingly iven over to people with mental health/drug use so these problems are not going to go away.
What with care in the community and lack of funding it is the functioning tenants that are left to police many of these situations.
And no, this is not a rant against those unfortunate people with mental health and other issues but merely a post highlighting that functioning tenants have little or no support in dealing with these issues.
I have had terrible experiences with tenants playing loud music till all hours, parties, verbal abuse, banging etc. And I was expected to live with it. So annoying when you are going off to work to pay taxes so you can be kept up till 4 in the morning !!
