What Are the Actions of a Psycho Neighbor That Cross the Line?

When dealing with obnoxious or unstable neighbors, it is important to know what the actions that cross the line of everyday neighbor problems are.

Check the table below for some behaviors that cross the line:

Behavior That Crosses the LineBrief Explanation
Harming your petIf a neighbor harms your pet in any way, like poisoning or shooting it, you know you’re dealing with a psycho. To make sure that your neighbor is at fault, you should take your pet to the vet immediately and run tests. Once you’re certain your neighbor harmed your pet, you can sue them
Harassing youAnything that jeopardizes your safety is harassment. Your neighbor is harassing you if they:
Dealing drugsIf you’re certain that your neighbor is dealing drugs, you can report them to the authorities. This is not a 911 situation, so you should call your local police station and ask where you can report this
Stealing your belongingsA neighbor can steal your package or anything else from your yard. This type of behavior also crosses the line. You should contact your local police station and report them

What Are the Best Ways of Dealing With Unstable Neighbors?

If you’re afraid that your unstable neighbor might be a psycho, then your best bet is to avoid them. Sometimes, though, you can’t ignore their noise or behavior that directly affects you. It’s not easy having a psycho living next-door, so here are some tips on how you can deal with angry or rude neighbors:

  1. Don’t act the same way they do—If they start shouting at you, try not to react the same way. If you respond with anger, that will only make matters worse. Try to cool down before continuing the discussion with your rude neighbor
  2. Try to listen—If you can try to bury the hatchet for a few minutes, you can listen to what your neighbor is complaining about. Maybe the two of you can reach a compromise
  3. Be assertive and suggest a potential solution—When you get to know what’s troubling your neighbor, you might come to see that there is a solution to your problems. Try working together with them to reach a mutual goal

If you’re afraid of your neighbor or they are harassing you, all of these tips don’t apply. If that’s the case, we can help you learn how to document neighbor harassment. Use DoNotPay to escalate!
