have been failing to pieces for over 12 months. the back one's have collapsed and now there is a mini waterfall banging onto of their plastic conservatory roof. But it's the front ones that are the worst. they leak down onto their porch overhang then fall like niagra falls onto of their wheelie bin top and then onto the recycling box. It's so noisy. I wish they'd get them fixed or at least move the bloody bins. Apart from being a noisy eye sore the water is splashing on their brick work and must be making the walls damp.

My neighbour has guttering like that. Thankfully, they're moving. I hope the new people will fix them.

I can't understand why they aren't embarrassed. She is so house proud. I hear her hovering all the time and last week she was steam cleaning her bathroom tiles, yet the garden is a mess and they are happy to let the outside of their house fall apart.

People are weird with what they can, and can't live with.
I saw an episode of "how clean is your house" where every room was a state, apart from the bathroom. They kept it clean, as they "get clean in there", yet were fine with the rest of the house being dirty, including the kitchen...

Our neighbours gutter is a nightmare - we live in a new build (and have done since it was built 6 years ago) but their gutter has leaked into our garden since day one as there is a big hole in it as it goes around a corner.
It is a flat - we have no idea of the number so we can't write to them and would never see them coming or going. We have tried to patch it up ourselves, which hasn't worked.
A few months ago, the lady that lives there came knocking at my door as she had locked herself out. She wanted to know if there was any way to access her flat from our garden - there isn't, but she thought she might have left a window open. I did mention the gutter to her (in a kind of 'oh look, your gutter is pouring water into our garden again, how funny!' way, but she was understandably too distraught about being locked out and having to pay £100s to get back in that I don't think she took it in. I am pretty sure it is rented, but I have no way of finding out who owns it to try and get it resolved. Think I may have to wait for her to leave the window open which backs on to the side of our house and stick a note through it!!

One of our old neighbours was like this. Their guttering got pulled off by the snow the other year and was left half hanging down at the front for a good three months or more before they got it fixed. And they didn't look after their shed so the roof has more or less collapsed and the door came off its hinges. The weird thing is they were still using it for storage. And they obviously didn't care at all about gardening as they didn't mow their lawn more than once a summer.
The weird thing is that he had a nice car that he took really good care of but didn't care at all about how his house appeared. Its rented out but I think he still owns it. I feel sorry for our neighbours as the shed forms part of the boundary between their gardens so they have to look at this run down old eyesore every time they look out into their back garden.

Oh yes, and how could I forget. they leave their dog in all day and it barks and howls. sometimes if they go out at night it does it all night too. we've never seen them walk it ever. they let it crap in the garden but don't pick it up for months. I don't think it's rented because it's the same family that have lived here for * years and we once got some post delivered by mistake about their mortgage.
Sorry other people have crappy neighbours too. We've stopped even pretending to be pleasant to them as they don't let on to you in the street so I think we are past being able to ask them to sort them out. Our neighbours on the other side are lovely.
