Noise Nuisance & Sound Insulation
Noise nuisance in residential properties continues to be a source of complaint and distress, particularly in houses which have been converted into flats.

We provide expertise in all aspects of statutory nuisance, including noise nuisance. We have provided expert advice in hundreds of nuisance cases, in possession proceedings and in other forms of litigation. We are frequently called upon to act as single joint experts and have given advice to central and local government.

Approved Document E of the Building Regulations requires that reasonable resistance to sound is provided both between and within residential dwellings, flats and rooms for residential purposes. It also requires that reverberation is appropriately controlled within the common internal areas of such premises.

Members of the Health and Housing Group provide a range of noise related services, including sound insulation testing.
