Neighbour relations 

We want to not only provide quality homes: we want to help build communities where people want to live. To do this, we need the help of all our tenants, owners, and wider community members to support positive neighbour relations. 

We understand that some neighbourhood problems can be the result of how we simply live our lives differently, such as putting the washing machine early or children playing in the property above.  Your neighbour might not even realise that this is causing a disturbance and a simple conversation might help reduce the disturbance while building positive neighbour relations.

It is important to respect how your neighbours choose to live their lives.  However, when this disturbance become excessive it may fall into anti-social behaviour category.   

Anti-social behaviour 

Anti-social behaviour means: causing or likely to cause alarm, distress, nuisance or annoyance to any person or causing damage to anyone’s property.  

Where the behaviours experienced fall into the anti-social category, you should speak to a member of our housing team to make your concerns known.  We will treat every report of anti-social behaviour confidentially and will conduct a thorough investigation.  

We aim to respond to reports quick and efficiently, and we will keep you up to date as much as possible throughout the investigation process.  We will also work with partner organisations to help resolve anti-social behaviour concerns as soon as possible (such as Police Scotland, Glasgow City Council, etc.). 

Anti-social behaviour can involve a range of different behaviours, ranging from minor nuisances to serious potential criminal conduct. Some examples of anti-social behaviour include:

  • Rowdy behaviour (excessive shouting, swearing and fighting)

  • Threatening behaviour

  • Excessive noise 

  • Vandalism and graffiti 

  • Fly-tipping or littering 

Depending on the nature of the complaint, it may be possible to resolve the matter between the two parties through discussion and mediation.  However, where this is not possible we may be required to take action in line with the Tenancy Agreement and any relevant legislation (Policy Scotland can take action on any anti-social behaviour that is a criminal offence).

Further information about the investigation process and potential outcomes can be found in our Anti-social Behaviour Policy.
