Top 20 reasons you might hate your neighbour!


Neighbourly disputes

We know first-hand that neighbourly disputes can be very distressing and can quickly escalate to the point where neighbours do the best they can to avoid bumping into one another, or conversely, clash horns and end up in costly and time consuming litigation!

But why? Huffington Post Reporter Sara Spary took a look at the top 20 reasons you might hate your neighbour, and although somewhat surprising but plausible, *a neighbour would prefer to live next door to a drug baron than a neighbour who was to progress with notifiable party wall works without having first served Notice!

*infringement to property ranks more infuriating than criminal activity when it comes to ranking neighbourly disputes!
