A recent ‘Which’ survey found more than a quarter of UK adults have had a problem with a noisy neighbour in the past year, meaning that one in four of us will have experienced noise issues with neighbours. Loud voices and arguing topped the list of annoyances. Loud music, slamming doors and noisy pets also featured. Compared with older people, those in their 20s were almost twice as likely to say they have experienced a nuisance neighbour, according to the survey, among 18 to 24-year-olds, 33% had encountered a problem in the past year, with the figure being 17% for those aged 65 and over. Of those who had experienced a problem, loud voices were cited by 41%, followed by loud music and TVs (29%).
