Hi all I desperately need help.. as I feel like I am about to have a total break down.I am a single mom and I live with my small child in a dept of housing duplex.. due to leaving an abusive household.. because I want to raise my child in a safe, peaceful home.I keep to myself.. I take excellent care of my child and I study full time..I am working my rear end off so I can finish my studies as soon as possible to get my child and I away from here.
The situation next door is a living hell for my child and I..I have complained numerous times to the dept of housing.I have complained to my local members of parliment..I have complained to bill marimon, who is the minister for housing.
but, the situation next door is not any better, and i cannot take it anymore.The only option the can give me is for me to move.. however I waited for 2 years for this house.. I am not doing anything wrong.. so I do not feel it is right that I should have to be homeless..
I have lived here for over 2 years...for the first 18 months my neighbour did not reside next door.. she instead illegally subleted her property and handed her keys out to anyone and everyone.
it was a constant revolving door.. of people arriving usually late at night.. getting drunk, making noise.At time there were so many people there.. people would sleep on matresses in her carport which faces my bedroom windows.
my neighbours ex partner showed up drunk falling out of a taxi at 3 am.. and spent the next 2 hours yelling and screaming about the 'bush abos' who had messed up his home.
For 3 nights in a row.. this man a approx a dozen other males..made so much noise that my child and I could not sleep.. by night four they were standing a metre outside my bedroom window .. drunk yelling screaming, fighting and playing extremely loud music..
I called the police as I could not take it anymore.
My neighbours ex partner- then came up to my bedroom window screaming verbal used at me and threated to bash my ****ing white hole in... which my 5 year old heard.
This terrified my child as she thought this man was going to come into our home and hurt me.
My neighbour was brought home severly intoxcated by the police at approx 4 am.. she then stood outside screaming for over half an hour because she couldnt get inside.. she then smashed her kitchen window out.. this window is still broken and is covered with cardboard.
There is constantly loud noise, people fighting and playing loud music till 4 or 5 amMy neighbour regulary allows youths to use her home as a all night party home to get drunk in.. which results in fighting and loud music till usually 5 am.
I have had the police knock on my door TWICE looking for my neighbour and her partner.
After my neighbours ex partner at 3 am to please turn the music down, I was yet again verbally abused and threatened with being bashed.. and called a fking white b&^ch.
This man has been charged and convicted with grevious bodily harm for breaking his sons jaw..This man frightens me and makes me feel extremely intimidated to the point where if I hear his voice I feel very afraid to walk out of my front door.
I have had drunken men knocking on my front door , asking me to open my door for them.
When I came home from shopping last month with my 5 year old daughter,there was a dozen drunken aboriginals sitting in the carport next door... they verbally abused me as I got my shopping out of the car infront of my child. they said "fking white b%%ch.. call and complain about us you fking dog.
'last month at 5:58 pm on a sunday afternoon.. there was over half a dozen drunken people fighting and screaming outside my living room window.I could hear glass being smashed.. and things being thrown around..
there was a male threatening to physically hurt a female who was screaming at him.. i could hear doors inside my neighbours house being slammed.. when I looked out of my living room windows I could broken beer bottles laying on the cement outside my living room windows/They sounded like they were trying to kill each other..
I was terrified, my 5 year old daughter was terrified..I wanted to leave my house , but I was too afraid to go outside.I am too afraid to call the police.. as I am afraid what they will do after the police leave.I cannot take this anymore..
.Right now I feel extremely depressed , I feel powerless and I feel as though I am back in a domestic violence situation .. I feel hopeless..and I feel that noone cares at all..I cannot take living next door to this anymore..
I was told over a month ago that my neighbour was in jail... so there should not be anyone in her home.yet all week the same black car filled with youths has shown up next door late at night..
making noise..playing loud music.. getting drunk.they showed up at 1 am.. it is now 2 am.. and they are playing such loud music it is like trying to sleep ina nightclub.I cannot sleep.. my child.. who has school in the morning..cannot sleep.i am so sick of this.this person should be evicited...
I dread coming home.. i can never get a peaceful sleep.my daughter has heard them abuse me..
my friends do not want to come to my home after hearing how my neighbours behave.. they do not want their kids here.I feel like i am in hell..i feel like i am back in a domestic violence situation ..i feel like i am walking on egg shells all of the time..
i have nowhere else to live..i hate coming home.. i hate being home.it's 2 am and I want to sleep!!!!!!!!!please someone help me.
i have tried the dept of housing..
i have tried the minster for housing..
i have tried my local members of parliment..yet its 2 am and i cannot sleep. due to youths getting drunk.. who have no legal right to be next door.
