When everyone has a home

Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Harassed or intimidated in your neighbourhood

Everyone wants neighbours they can get along with, but we’re not all this lucky.  If the behaviour is very serious you may be able to get help to find a new home from the Housing Executive. Don’t stay in your home if you feel unsafe or there is a risk you could be hurt.

Harassment from neighbours can cause huge stress. You might be able to resolve your differences with your neighbour by talking calmly about the issues or using mediation services. If this doesn't work your landlord may be able to help you deal with the problem.

If the Housing Executive accepts that you've been intimidated and believe you're at risk of death or serious injury if you continue living in your home you might be entitled to financial help as well as help finding a new home. 

You may get help securing your home if you’ve been attacked in a hate crime.

Mediation can often help to resolve problems between family members, neighbours or housemates. It’s not an appropriate solution in every case but can be very effective.
