Over a THIRD of Welsh homeowners who have a neighbour dispute take revenge afterwards according to new research – with the most complaints about noise.
People get into arguments with their neighbours for any number of reasons, from mislaid wheelie bins to stolen parking spots to extreme behaviour.
In fact, We Buy Any Home found that nearly a quarter of people who have sold their home said that having bad neighbours contributed to their reasons for selling their home.
In a survey of 2,000 U.K. adults who have sold a home, a whopping 60% of UK adults said that they had had a dispute with a neighbour, and that the dispute left them feeling negatively about them.
The top reason for disputes across the U.K. were from one unanimous reason: being too noisy at anti-social hours.
If your neighbour has a problem with you, it’s most likely that it’s because you’re too noisy at anti-social hours.
