If you are suffering from noise, you can ring the Southwark Council noise nuisance team on 020 7525 2000 (24 hour service). It's a bit of a long winded process, but they have a lot of powers to stop noise, including confiscating equipment.
I'd love to assume the previous comment was a joke, but it doesn't sound very joke-y....
If your neighbours are causing a nuisance you have a valid grievance against them and there are processes you can go through. If, however, you do something stupid like that, then you are also in the wrong and they can also make a complaint against you. It must be tempting but in the long run it sounds like a somewhat stupid idea!
It is the students on the first floor who are friends with the students on the ground floor and treat the building like a halls of residence. One of them threatened to hit me after the last time I complained, this was at 4am on a Tuesday morning. I seriously regret not informing the police.
My agent has written to the managing agents. If you email me [email protected] I'll give you managing agents contact details. I think it would help if there were other complaints beside mine.
Re. calling the council...they told me they'll only come out if there is music playing..shouting, banging and slamming doors at 5am (as happened Monday morning) don't count.
I believe that leases and rental agreements often contain clauses about not disturbing other residents. The agent / managing agent will hopefully be aware of the position in your building, but it would be worth checking for yourself if you haven't already done so.
If the details of the managing agents are Salter-Rex then I have the number and will call them this afternoon.
I agree something must be done about this as the students are definitely treating Bridgewalk Heights like halls of residence and turning the place into a sh*t hole.
I'd definitely steer clear of them as I'm sure they're on drugs, it's not worth getting attacked over.
I was just wondering what happened to the noisy residents?
I moved to Bridgewalk Heights in September and have had problems coming from a certain flat... they are soooo noisy. Not on weekends but partying from sunday to friday there about :/
I (and others) have been complaining here and there and now finally they have been told that they have to move out of the flat. But now they are dragging this decision to court. I can not imagine that they in any way will win, but I guess that they are just doing that for being able to stay in that flat for a bit longer...
So fingers crossed that Bridgewalk Heights soon will be a more quieter place to live!
