There will be times when you can hear your neighbours. And they will hear you too. This is normal – as a student, a detached house just isn't a realistic scenario. But if living with your neighbours is really proving to be problematic, we need to take action.
Your neighbour may not even be aware that they are causing a problem to anyone. So talk to each other first. Make agreements and be considerate of your neighbours. Most issues can be solved that way.
If you are unable to solve matters amongst yourselves, you can report the issue to us. You can do so by email, phone or using the nuisance report form. We will require the following information from you:
We will assess the situation first to determine our options. Sometimes we will suggest neighbourhood mediation. In other cases, we may ask you to keep reporting the nuisance in order to collect evidence. Of course, we won't want to get someone evicted without serious reasons.
The police have more room to take action than we do. It's therefore wise to report matters like noise nuisance or people making threats or damaging property to the police. Even if the problem isn't immediatley noticeable at the time. You can do so by calling 0900-8844, or 112 in case of emergency.
When waste is being left out on the streets in your area, or if there is damage to the pavement, for instance, you can report this to the Eindhoven municipality.
