but

our neighbour goes in and out four or five times a night and today when i came home the common area smelled strongly of weed...

i have asked him several times to be quieter - usually at 3am when he has woken me

any suggestions?

i think he might be dealing, should i call the filth?

If you were to go down that route, is it likely he would suss that the tip-off came from you, or are there quite a number of other possibilities? If he is likely to be able to pin it down to you then it might be advisable to keep schtoom.

If you both rent from the same agency or landlord try to get them to pop round when the smell is particularly strong. Let them evict the fecker.

Have you only really spoken to him when he's out of it? If so, p'raps consider popping round during the day and try to have a pleasant word when he's not bouncing off the walls?

Not sure reporting him will achieve very much at all, other than creating animosity.

I would deffo try having a quiet word during the day and if he's an arse, consider keeping an eye on him and then reporting him as a suspected dealer. If he is, he probably won't connect any dots back to you necessarily.

He may not be dealing, just smoking a lot.

The frequent trips out are probably to the nearest garage to get "munchies".

The surefire way to tell is to try and score off him.

More helpfully.... What do the other people in the area think? If there is just you, then now much you can do. However, if a load of you, you could consider jointly either having a word, or talking to landlord as a group voice - This is likely to get things sorted.

Community policing is another fantastic way of getting things dealt with - the local PCSO tries to be as anonymous as possible, likely to deal by phone initially, likely to even meet you outside the area, park the car away, come over in mufti etc to help you to get things resolved.

Good luck.

No. You've blown your chance. For future reference if you suspect someone is dealing etc. when you report them, make it a good few months after you've moved in, preferably a couple or so days after you see someone else moving in locally, i.e. don't make it so obvious it was you.


If you do, make sure you do it anonymously.

Ha, that's a joke, not only is anonymous calling impossible (for average joe), the attending officer is most likely to tell them the call was traced back to you just to show off how clever they are.

Like I say, they'll probably not be able to grab them dealing, but if they assault you, then they've got an brownie point on their 'clear-up rate'

Anonymous calling is easy. Call crimestoppers from a payphone in a different town.

They don't need to catch dealers in the act, the crime is called "possession with intent to supply" and is usually inferred from the fact they are in possession of larger quantities than would be for personal use.

Rather than involving the police, why not try and come to an arrangement e.g. offer him a 1kg bar of dairy milk if he keeps quite for a whole week. Don't let him know you have the chocolate in the house though, or he may well break in.

He's some bloke in his flat smoking a bit of weed, not Manuel Noriega. I reckon 30% or more of the population have done the same thing at some point in their lives. I'm surprised you've never tried it, you strike me as an open minded sort of chap.

That's a fair point, but he may not be irritating her on purpose, and the chances are that if she has complained he's making an effort to avoid doing it again. I really think killing him is a bit OTT.

Presumably we are talking about an older house that has been converted into flats, although a lot of blocks of flats built in the 80s are not much better. A lot of those were done on the cheap with little or no attention paid to soundproofing, which caused a huge increase in the number of complaints about noisy neighbours and resulted in amended building regulations. Laminate floors are a particular source of problems, esp when laid by cowboys or DIYers who don't use a proper underlay.

http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/uploads/br/BR_PDF_ADE_2003.pdf

Even perfectly reasonable people can end up at loggerheads over noise, I know the guy who bought the flat downstairs from where I used to live (in a converted victorian house) paid around £30k to have work done to reduce impact noise (which included having some work done in what had been my flat). He was very reasonable and understood the problem but most people don't and assume the neighbours are doing it purpose.

I used to live in a flat with a heroin user/small time dealer living in the attic flat above. We had skinny white trash scumbags turning up at all hours trying to 'score', the front door got kicked off it's hinges, an antique table was stolen and my post often didn't turn up.

This was a large Victorian house converted into 7 flats occupied mostly by nice respectable owners including a vicar and his wife, just one of the flats was rented and you can guess which. :rolleyes:

Noise nuisance is usually tackled by the noise abatement officer of your local council. They can vary in effectiveness and obviously your neighbour will know one his neighbours have called. Are you two the only ones in the block?
When I lived in a flat and had some noisy Aussie neighbours, I knocked on their door, called them koonts and told them if I heard anything more that got me out of bed, I would break the door down and beat the crap out of them. I was so angry I meant it and it showed. Never heard a peep after that.

This is a true story.

It was my final year and I was sleeping badly, stressed for my exams, I was taking a little extra for a nights sleep which had caused me to sleep walk a few times.

One night the house behind had a small but very loud party. Right in the middle of the exams, the ******* twats. I tried to sleep and took the medication I had, eventually at some point falling asleep.

I awoke the next morning to find that the bottom of my bed was covered in mud and my feet where filthy.

I showered and got ready to go to Uni. My flatmate then asked me, "How did you get them to turn the music off last night?". "I didn't" was the reply. 'Yes you did, you went out about 2am and then the music stopped'......

Now. I don't remember going out, but I do remember that when I woke up I remembered a vivid dream, where that in my dream I put my dressing gown on, went next door walking across their garden, walked into the house behind, pulled the stereo from the wall, had a fight with someone and then went home. The music then stopped'

I don't know if it ever happened, but all I know is, they never spoke to me again.

My personal favourites of Weebl are Badger, Kenya and Magical Trevor.

For those who have never come across Weebls stuff it is fantastic.
