Background...

We live in a small block of flats, really quiet area, and always got on really well with the couple above us. They split and she moved out and he met a new girlfriend a couple of months ago and everything has changed. He's only young, mid 20's and I think his new girlfriend is about 18/19. She is so different to his ex, really loud, every other word that comes out of her mouth is fuck, she gives me filthy looks even though I've never spoken to her, I'm no threat to her btw I'm in my 30's with a baby. She seems to be there most of the time and they always have the windows wide open and you can hear everything. Whether they're arguing or talking every other word is fuck...The other night we could hear her telling him about a fight she'd recently had and how she got the girl on the ground and was kicking her in the head!!

The turning point came for us 3 weeks ago on a Wednesday evening when they were up all night drinking, music blaring until 4.30am, I was knocking on their door at 2am, 3am, 4am but they ignored us,, DP has to get up at 5am and I get up at 6am, we both work full time. We'd had several nights like this over the previous few weeks but that night I cracked. We saw him the following day and told him how annoyed we were and he was really apologetic and promised it wouldn't happen again. We also told him we could hear everything when they had sex too so would also be great if they could take that down a notch. Despite having 3 other young couples live in that flat and never hearing anything apart from the occasional bed squeak we hear everything with him because she seems to scream through their entire session! Think porn film noises and then ramp it up a dozen times!

Anyway, they've been much quieter for the last 3 weeks but now we've had 2 nights again of music being turned off at 4.30am, they're literally going to bed as we get up for work, their sex sessions are just ridiculous you can hear her constantly, as my DP put it "She must scream with every stroke!" Then you get all the 'fuck me' you're making me come etc...' the other night we heard her say "I haven't fucking come fucking wank me off" We laid in bed thinking for gods sake hurry up. We know they do coke which in itself doesn't bother us but I think thats what fuels their sex sessions coz when they are at it it always seems to start about 1am and is on and off until about 4.30/5.00am

A couple of days ago I saw her and she just glared at me so I'm presuming he told her I'd spoken to him. As they walked away I heard him say "Don't fucking stare at her don't fucking cause trouble again" and they went on to have an argument about it.

We all share the same landlord and I've spoken to him and asked him to give them a warning about the noise because it's not on. Landlord has come back and he's evicting them! I didn't mean for them to get evicted and now I feel really guilty for complaining and I'm thinking maybe they're not that bad... anyone else experienced neighbours like this?

Yanbu if they're being evicted I'd be surprised you're the only one that's complained!

It's their own tough luck. They obviously knew it was bothering neighbours but carried on anyway. They sound hideous and pity the next person they live close to.

They are that bad or they wouldn't get the boot.
Don't feel bad

Who cares then if they're being evicted? They sound like awful immature cunts.

SnookieSnooks Thu 19-May-16 15:59:37

YA definitely NBU..... No need to feel guilty.

Do not feel bad in any way- I'd have been calling the police/council noise team on them, never mind just mentioning it to the landlord.

Honestly just be relieved!

I feel guilty because we've always got on well with him. When DP spoke to him 3 weeks ago he asked him asked him "What's happened to you? you're letting it all go to pot" He used to be really hard working and then he met this girl... DP said to him you're upsetting the neighbours, it's too quiet a neighbourhood to behave like this. I think he's probably having great sex with a girl who's behaving like he's the best lover in the world and he's blindsided.

Thank you everyone x

I would imagine you are not the only person to have complained to the Landlord which is why they are being evicted, your complaint was probably the final nail in the coffin.

Don't feel guilty you gave them the opportunity to be considerate neighbours and they blew it, no-one to blame but themselves.

I hope your future new neighbours are better!

BaboonBottom Thu 19-May-16 16:22:27

I'd imagine the noise wasn't the only complaint for the landlord to evict them. Do you know when they are going?

RattieOfCatan Thu 19-May-16 16:28:43

They wouldn't be evicting them because you complained, you must have been one of many who complained about them. Sounds horrendous though, I hope that the next set of neighbours are more considerate!

It definitely sounds like you are one in a long list of people to complain. Don't give it another thought. If you don't want to be evicted, don't act like complete cunts. Simples.

Mari50 Thu 19-May-16 16:34:04

Don't feel guilty in the least, they sound like antisocial horrors. I had an ex boyf whose flat mate did the porno scream thing during sex- so annoying. They deserve evicting purely for that.

I'd be throwing a party to celebrate (ending at a reasonable time, obviously). They sound like a nightmare.
