Noise from faulty burglar alarms can cause a severe noise disturbance, especially if they go off at night.
There are some simple steps you should take if you have an audible intruder alarm installed:
When we receive a complaint about an intruder alarm we will visit to see if the noise is causing a statutory nuisance. We will also check our keyholder records and where possible arrange for the alarm to be silenced.
If we do not hold any keyholder details, we are unable to contact them and we do not know when they are returning home, we will serve a noise abatement notice on them telling them to silence the alarm. We must allow a reasonable time for the alarm to be deactivated. If they do not take any action, we will try to get a warrant to have the alarm disconnected and enter the premises by force if necessary. All costs involved will be recovered from the homeowner.
