They probably won't hear your alarm.

If you're that tired you'll sleep through anything..

That's rather unkind calling him an old codger.
Have you tried earplugs?

byjimminey Sun 12-Jun-16 22:19:30

Sounds very annoying. Despite the fact that hey are old and probably don't mean to annoy you. Why should you have to wear ear plugs??

Nearly 3 months pregnant. You poor love.

Let's hope you live to a ripe old age to enjoy your lovely child and grandchildren.

And get to piss your neighbours off.

How long have you got to put up with it until you move?

If it's a while, it might be worth starting the noise control process with council/environmental health? But, if it's not so long, I feel for you, neighbour noise and sleeplessness is horrible but be comforted by the fact that the end is in sight.

It seems like there's a soundproofing issue then.

You have my full sympathy. I live in a badly built small Victorian terrace and the only reason it's bearable is because the neighbours on both sides are reasonable and mainly quiet. But instill dream of moving to a detached house and hopefully will in the future...

We had an elderly nei our who listened to his TV at full blast. We eventually mentioned it to him and he bought headphones and only watched without when watching the odd match. I think the fact that his daughter had said the same helped, is there any family you could get on side.

Oh, and no, even if you're exhausted noise can keep you awake.

If they're that deaf they won't hear it anyway.

That sounds really hard.

AliceInUnderpants Sun 12-Jun-16 22:55:22

I hear you (no pun intended wink)
My neighbours are not old or deaf, but the TV goes on in their room between 9 and 11pm, and it's louder than I'd even listen to in my room at that time of night. I've considered buying them some blue tooth headphones each wink

You don't have to give two months' notice. The law says one month, and contract can't supersede law in England and Wales.

Just in case that helps smile

they should seriously get some of those headphones if their TV is that loud.

ill complain to the letting agent and threaten the council next.

Do, and make sure that your LL is informed; s/he will have to disclose any noise complaints if s/he ever sells the property and may be able to intervene on your behalf.
