Being a good neighbour
Your relationship with your neighbours can have an impact on how happy you are in your home.
We want our neighbourhoods to be safe places for everyone, so we take reports of antisocial behaviour very seriously.
As a Loreburn resident, you're expected to behave respectfully under the terms of your Tenancy Agreement.

More than anything, we want our homes and communities to be GREAT places to live. Places where you can live safely and peacefully.
You can help by being a good neighbour. For most, this means being courteous and respectful of others.
We all value clean and safe environments, free from nuisance and activities that can cause disruption or have an unwelcome impact on others. We're all different, and have varied lifestyles and habits, so being tolerant of one another’s lifestyles is important.
If you do encounter problems with a neighbour, a friendly word might be enough. Often, people don’t realise they’re causing a problem. The best thing to do is calmly discuss the situation or problem and, if necessary, be willing to compromise.
Our top tips on how to be a good neighbour:
