With the weather improving, many of us will be heading out into our gardens. But do you find that noisy neighbours or pesky animals ruin it for you?
I’m looking for a place to buy at the moment, and a front garden that’s full of junk is a real turn-off. A government antisocial behaviour proposal suggests fining people who leave rubbish in their front garden.
There’s nothing like the ‘thud, thud, thud’ of the next-door neighbour’s music to keep you awake at night, and our research shows noisy neighbours bother most of us. So how do you get them to keep it down?
Apparently four in ten of us wouldn’t ‘trust’ our neighbours to keep an eye on our homes when we’re on holiday. Is this just another meaningless statistic, or have we really lost our sense of neighbourliness?
