This document is a letter written to a neighbor who may be causing a nuisance to an individual or a neighborhood. The primary goal of this letter is to ask the nuisance-causing 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 the particular 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 the sender of the letter has already tried to get the neighbor to stop the nuisance activity several times. In a nuisance letter to a neighbor, the sender should be sure to 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, the sender of the letter can decide exactly how they would like to come across to the neighbor. The letter can be sent to a friendly neighbor, who may gladly comply, or it can be sent to a troublesome neighbor that may not be likely to give in to requests to stop without some forceful language. The form allows options to choose whether the tone of the letter should be nice, neutral, or strict.

The letter can also be tailored to relate to the specific type of nuisance that is being experienced. The nuisance may be a private nuisance, that is impacting only one person, 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. The form has spots for all those details, as well.


Applicable law

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