Lady wins £100k damages over noise from neighbour’s children

A banker who sued her neighbours over the “intolerable” noise of their children treating their flat above like a playground has won more than £100,000 in damages. 

.

.

Sarvenaz Fouladi, 38, said that she had been bombarded with incessant commotion from the family of five at her £2.6 million apartment in Kensington, west London. 

.

.

The sound of everyday activity, from children playing to dishes being washed, ruined her peace during the day and kept her up at night. 

.

.

Ms Fouladi, who lives with her mother in the 1920s mansion block, told the judge that her neighbours’ children treated their flat like a playground and ran around at all hours dropping things. 

.

.

She sued Sarah and Ahmed El Kerrami for noise nuisance and Judge Nicholas Parfitt said it was the noise of simple “day-to-day living” which had caused the problems in the mansion block.

.

.

He said that the El Kerramis and their family company which owns the flat should have put carpets on the wooden floors in living areas. 

.

.

He issued an injunction, ordering the company to do work on the floors in the flat to significantly reduce noise levels. And he ordered that Miss Fouladi be paid compensation of £107,397.37, rising by £40-a-day until the work is done. 📸: PAUL KEOGH
