    Hi. Just wondering, what rights do I have under property law, if my neighbour, on several occasions, has rang my real estate agent, and complained about my kids outside playing? It's to the point where I will not let the kids go outside, and it's not fair to the kids not being able to go outside. Several of the complaints have been made when the kids are not home. Is this harassment?

    Thanks

    Hi Monica,

    Are you and your neighbour tenants in the same property? Is your concern that you will be kicked out if your children continue to annoy the neighbour? Are you under any body corporate by laws regarding noise levels?

    In the absence of further information I would suggest speaking with your neighbour personally in a friendly but upfront matter, indicating that its not an option for your children to be inside all the time, but that you are willing to negotiate times that are and are not appropriate for them to be making noise outside. Being firm but kind and keeping the lines of communication open usually does the trick.
