I think I can do better than this, we are not getting anybody looking at ours we have only had 2 viewing since beginning of May, on top of this my neighbour has decided to make life more difficult by leaning over our fence and hacking of our plants its really odvious and I'm in tears they know our house is on the Market (board out front) and they are trying to devalue our home even more. He got abusive last year and I had to call the police out all because we objected to their a conservatory (it looked into our property) so we was allowed to put a wall infront ourside to prevent this. What make's it more difficult now is we have to declare to any potential buyers the police were involved and now they are making it evident the matter hasn't dropped.
I wanted to spend the last few months in England enjoying myself and relaxing instead I've become a prisoner in my own home every time I go out they start hacking again.
Any advice out there.:(
I can totally sympathize!We too have the neighbours from hell!I am having to hold my OH back on a daily basis as i don't want the police neighbourly dispute record that you have as we would have to declare it to any potential buyers like you have to!

I hate them soooo much but i am determined to not get into any agro with them now as they would get great satisfaction out of it and we would be the ones that have to pay in the long run!
But i know they are aggravating us any possible chance they get just to wind us up waiting for a reaction!
Im really sorry you are in this situ
Thanks gill I'm feeling so totally isolated at the moment thinking its me, I'll try and take a leaf out of your book and keep my cool, Where has the community spirt gone in this country I just hope in a years time I'll be laughing about all of this.
We too have neigbours from hell and it killed me not to complain but when we put the house on the market(no board up) they got worse and we had to complain but we have got a young couple moving in to our house so i hope they have loads of party's and do loads of diyeverything will fall into place soon keeping fingers crossed for you dina
I thought just selling the house was bad but I feel for you when you have horrible neighbours. If they dont like you then you would think they would want to see you go.
Some people are so petty and take great joy in messing up your plans.
When we sold our last property, we have 2 familes from hell on the street. It was a small cul di sac. They had late teens who brought all there friends around. None of them worked and they played load music day and night, drank, smoked drugs on the street. The police were always there. We had 1 viewer come and all was quiet when she arrived. She looked around and said she liked. As she was leaving, all the gang had turned up and they were shaving there heads at the side of my house. The viewer couldnt get away fast enough and we never heard from her again.
In the end, DH had a word with them and asked that if we had viewers, could they scarper for a while cos they were putting people off. They seemed pleased that they were a threat but they did listen and when we went out to tell them of viewers they went indoors until they had gone.
I really feel for all of you with nasty neighbours, we are finding it very hard selling and we have great neighbours and are in a lovely quiet street.
Hope we all get buyers soon
