My husband and I just bought our first house, and our neighbors are the WORST. The woman next door runs a day care, and not a licensed one. The children are HORRIBLE. It seems to me they are forced to stay outside all day. I once saw one of the youngest girls go into the house and heard someone inside yelling and she came back outside crying.
Our houses are both close to the property line, their car-port and part of their house is right on the property line. There is a strip of yard about 4 ft wide and 8ft long that belongs to us, and the children play on it. It wouldn't be a big deal except the children scream and hit the side of our house with objects (balls, wooden boards, etc.). The boys even drop their pants right outside our window and pee on our yard. All the grass in that area is now dead.
They leave trash in the yard, and we will find items like childrens clothing in our bushes. If they are outside playing when a friend or family member comes to our house, the children yell at them, and cuss at them while they are on my front porch waiting for me to open the door. They are loud, rude, and unsanitary.
I have a 4 month old daughter and I cant even put her in her room for naps during the day because they are so loud. I just don't know what to do. This is supposed to be a happy time for our new family. Our house is very nice, new siding, new roof, etc. The house next door looks like it is about to be condemed.
Once I did talk with the woman next door and she said she understood. She made the children pick up all the trash but that isn't good enough damn it! All our grass is gone on that side of the house and I still can't put my daughter in HER ROOM for naps. I can not handle those little boys pissing in the yard and on our house!
I'm not sure what to do now, I was thinking I could call SRS on the woman (and she would deserve it too, there are children out there in diapers with absolutly no supervision, except some older children that are mean to them and hit them constantly). If I could find out that they rent that house I could try to get them evicted but if they own the house, I just dont know what I am going to do. I fear calling the police becasue if they don't do anything it could just cause the children to destroy more of our property and be even louder.
Finally this tops the cake... Earlier I looked out and seen a cross dressing black man pushing a grocery cart full of trash up the ally and into their house with it! WHAT THE FUCK!!??? Please do you have any advice for me? I would be forever grateful.
No doubt you have quite a situation on your hands. Little can be done about the noise (unless you can get the daycare completely shut down but as you mentioned that could backfire and make the situation worse). I'm not sure about the laws where you live but in Ontario (Canada) a daycare with up to 5 children can be run without any license from any residence.
At least the trash is picked up. Now as they say, good fences make good neighbours. Your best bet may be to now put up something (chain link may be ugly but its cheap and you can get it done in a weekend).
