Stereo and TV: Think about the volume or use headphones. Pull the TV and speakers away from your neighbour's walls. Raise them from the floor if possible.
Household Chores: Consider not mowing the lawn or starting the DIY at the crack of dawn. You may be an early riser, but others could be trying to get some rest. Night birds should equally think about doing their vacuuming or washing at less 'anti social' hours.
Parties: If you are planning a party, your neighbours are likely to be much more understanding if you warn them well in advance - you might even invite them. Either way, don't ruin their evening - and encourage guests to be equally respectful.
Alarms: Where an intruder alarm is installed, you should notify the local Council to nominate and register (see form below) a key holder who will be contacted if your alarm goes off accidentally while you are away. Alarms should be regularly maintained to ensure that it doesn't go off accidentally.
Cars: Don't play your car stereo to the world at large. Make sure your music isn't disturbing others, especially when you are parked or waiting for someone. Make sure your car alarm works properly.
