Letter to neighbor about nuisance

This document is a letter written to a neighbor who may be causing a nuisance to you or to your neighborhood. The primary goal of this letter is to ask your neighbor to stop the activity that's causing a nuisance. Sometimes, relations between neighbors can get tough, to the point that a friendly phone call or text message won't stop the activity that is causing the nuisance. Although it is unfortunate, writing a letter can be a firmer way to make sure your neighbor knows that they must stop the nuisance activity.

This letter may be an initial request to ask the neighbor to stop the activity or it may be sent after you have already tried to get the neighbor to stop the nuisance activity several times. In a nuisance letter to a neighbor, you should be sure that you give the neighbor enough information about the nuisance-causing activity so that they know exactly what to stop.

How to use this document

This letter asks the neighbor to stop engaging in the behavior that is creating a nuisance. Here, you can decide exactly how you would like to come across to your neighbor. It can be sent to a friendly neighbor, whom you think will gladly comply, or it can be sent to a troublesome neighbor that may not be likely to give in to your requests without some forceful language. You can choose whether you would like the tone of the letter to be nice, neutral, or strict.

You can also tailor the letter to relate to the specific type of nuisance you are experiencing. The nuisance may be a private nuisance, that is impacting only you, or it may be a public nuisance, causing harm to the whole neighborhood. The nuisance may be a noise, a smell, pollution, light interference or something else. You'll be able to enter in all of the details that you need.

Applicable law

Nuisances are common law torts in the United States. Your specific state or city may have a statute or ordinance laying out the elements of a nuisance action, but many of these statutes or ordinances track the elements of common law nuisance.
