NEWS UPDATE  

*******************************************************************

Our pool after one week  –   as of this morning 21.6.2013 – this is how it looked  –  our neighbour has been on the rampage all week.

*******************************************************************

Hello

This is the website we never wanted to put up…but have been forced to because of the evil actions of our next door neighbours over the last 7 years.

We live in Huerta Nueva, Los Gallardos in Almeria, Spain in what should be a very pleasant housing development in beautiful Andalucia.

However, our lives have been made a living nightmare as a result of the constant intimidation and violence by the couple next door – our Neighbours From Hell.

The local police and Huerta Nueva development company have done nothing to help us or our other neighbours.

How can this be allowed to continue?

We have tried over and over again to get someone to stop this now for 7 years!

We have no choice but to make our story public on this website and tell everyone what is going on at Huerta Nueva, Los Gallardos.

We hope it will help to bring awareness to our situation and will help everybody with ‘Neighbours From Hell’.

Here is a short list of some of the things they have done to us – more to come later.

  • Threatened to kill my wife (documented by the Spanish Guardia) – witnessed by a neighbour

 

  • Killed our family cat

 

  • Written swear words and threats on our vehicles

 

  • Disarmed our security cameras and telephone dish from our walls

 

  • Thrown dog faeces wrapped in plaster or slices of bread into our swimming pool every day for the last two years. We have had to close the pool down.

 

  • Intimidated all 6 of our surrounding neighbours- all except 2 remain, the others have since returned to the UK

 

We’ve put some of our own photos below to show some of what we’ve had to put up with. We apologise if they are too graphic so please don’t look at them if you are easily offended.

The constant intimidation is not good for our health, we cannot use our back garden and this will stop us from selling our property in the future (who would want to live next door to this?)

We have lots more information we can make public (recordings, videos on YouTube, other –more explicit photographs etc) and will over the next few weeks.

Thank you for looking at the site, we appreciate your support and please feel free to comment on the site.

Damage to our pergola when an iron bar was shoved through it. It missed us by inches.

Our family cat dead by the pool.

Abuse written on the side of vehicles.

Dog faeces wrapped in bread(?) thrown into the pool

Our pool full of dog faeces in plaster. We can no longer use the pool.

    Vile people. You’d think that the people who own Nueva Huerta would want to sort this out.

  2. Elaine Hill says:

    DISGUSTING! I cannot believe that nothing is being done about this constant abuse. The people who own this development have a responsibility to these people to sort this out. People should veto this development until this is sorted!! Nobody should have to live like this in this day and age. I hope everybody sees this and support these people.!!!

      Its difficult to get the Spanish Authorities to move on anything, maybe if we were Spanish the outcome would be different. The developement was handed over to the town hall so its now their responsiblity to help us, we visited the mayor to ask for help – not interested. We visited the Policia Local – not interested, even when 6 other neighbours went with the same complaint – not interested. The Guardia Civil is similar to the army and are not trained to ask questions of the public not like the British Police, you make your complaint they ask no questions and forward your report to the court, the only people who gain are the lawyers.

    Primitive action needed.

    These people are vile. It is very upsetting that my close family members have had to go through 7 years of torture because of these horrible neighbours. It is unbelievable that nothing has been done by local police to sort this out!! Surely the land owners of Huerta Nueva should now step in and get rid of these two idiots. Or else they will be left with lots of empty properties because of these bullies. ACTION SHOULD BE TAKEN NOW!!

    • Eve and Paul says:

      I am Elizabeths sister, over the year she learned how praticed this pair are,they even made flase alegations towards her and my neice, they have been bullying neighbours both here in Spain and back in Croydon where they lived for many years. But, I think once the truth comes out and all the evidence, statements etc from the UK have been investigated and the British Police send their evidence to the Spanish Police, we will at last be able to name and shame them publicly and put an end to their Anti Social Behaviour.

  5. Margaret says:

    I will supprt this fully. I hope you can get this resolved soon. You should not have to endure this upset where you are living. Margaret. Xx

  6. Richard says:

    Really feel for you both! Those sick vile animals need to be sectioned. If the police cant/wont do anything is there anything a solicitor can do at the spanish courts? Hope this ends soon!

    That is a pure disgrace how people can be so cruel and do that to people these people need punished for this! Well i hope yous fight this all the way so yous can live in peace stand with yous all the way godbless xxx

      Thanks Anne – if you message me on FB I will send you an email I will mail you back with the website details to forward to all your contacts. They are both just disgusting animals they should have been locked up years ago.

  9. Zoe says:

    That is just unbelievable that those 2 nasty people can get away with treating innocent people like that for so long, i cant believe noting has been done about it, makes me sick!!! Hope this plan works.

    • Eve and Paul says:

      So do I Zoe, They are so crafty and sly, they make friends with other couples nearby – who do not know the full true story, slink their way into friendship with by buying them bottles of wine/drink or offer to makeover their gardens for free. They fall for it as they are so plausable, then they twist the story around to make it look like us look like the bad neighbours. But the truth will out in the end.

    they should be charged for killing the cat for a start, there must be some law there that protects pets?? Nasty, horrible people and cowards for doing that to a poor defensless animal, never mind what they are doing to Paul and Evelyn!

    I am from Croydon – I know the 2 men you are talking about – will private message you on FB

  12. Eve and Paul says:

    If I had known Spanish Law back then I would have immediately made the report, have them arrested AND under Spanish Law they would have to prove their innocence that they did not kill the cat and throw him over the garden wall, in hindsight we had so much proof we would have won the case. We should have known something was going to happen as it was only weeks before that people walking their dogs from the area suspected them of putting broken glass at the bottom of the alleyway next to their villa to stop them going through, actually it must have worked as nobody walks down that way with their dogs anymore.

  13. Jennifer says:

    Can you send me details of where they lived in Croydon or some photos

  14. Jan from San Juan says:

    We used to rent in HN and walked past your neighbours villa on many occasions, my husband said to me “why go to all the expense of having a villa built with the terraces and windows facing onto your neighbours garden surely it should face towards the mountains to enjoy the view” We happened to mention this to another couple, they told us they had cameras behind all the persiannas/windows/terraces to watch everyones movements, we stopped walking past that way it made me feel uncomfortable. From then on we called it “The Lookout Tower” very appropriate. Sorry to read of your distress!!!

  15. Annie says:

    So glad that so many people are seeing this. It looks as if it might go global. Are you still being intimidated or is this website helping?

    • Anonymous says:

      Hi Annie
      Website may be helping, one has been trying his best to find out what is on the website. The day he returned from the UK a couple of weeks ago he threw bread slices with dog mess inside for 2 days, then someone must have mentioned the website, he knocked on a few doors to find out more indormation so as a result, we have had nothing since. The other man went to a boy’s camp in Africa for 2 weeks, but its when he returns and that is when they get really active
      – when they work together!!! So we do not know for sure what will happen in the future

    This is disgusting. People being treated like this and nothing done about it. People should stand up and defend Eve and Paul.

  17. Hi there – I own findmeahome estate agency and by change the owners of Huerta Nueva contacted me this week asking me to market the development. I wont be dong that as it does not fit into our portfolio of rural properties but I am happy to contact them to ask for more information about what has been going on between you and your neighbours. Perhaps if more people contact the developers something can be done. Regards Stephen Amore

    • Anonymous says:

      Thank you for your support Stephen, we really have tried, only 3 weeks ago we visited the developers to explain that what we were about to do online, they were of course very upset but not for us or they would have taken action to have them stopped, the only request was not to name Huerta Nueva on the website as our actions would cost them money. So far we have visited the town hall 3 times, the Policia Local and Guardia on numerous occasions, we have had court cases along with 6 other neighbours all trying hard to stop their anti social behaviour, but to no avail. Even the courts requested them to remove the cameras and have no further contact with us but that had no effect they still continue. They have become empowered because they know whatever they do – they will get away with. They are very practiced and very clever at dodging the law.

  18. Collette Nelson says:

    Absolutely disgusting. In this day & age, this sort of mental abuse should never be allowed. Why the authorities are turning a blind eye is beyond me! Good luck with you campaign.

    We have a similar situation going on without the crap so I can simpathise with you. perhaps all the agents with properties to sell might do something or have them sitting on their books for ever.

      Hi there, sorry to hear you are also being bullied. Bullies start in the school playgroud, it should be corrected when they are young by teachers and parents or else they will continue through their lives making life a hell for other people. ..
      My experience of bullies is that they are very sad and unhappy cowards, so if you stand up to them and give them as good as they gave you – they tend to back down. Unfortunately for us there is a percentage of retirees (and not just retirees) who come to live in Spain with nothing to do – no hobbies – nothing to do all day but gossip about other people, add to the gossip then pass it on. They are bored, then all the information is taken out of context, the only advice I could pass on to you would be to try and find the person who is likely to have caused your situation, put your case to them. If you don’t face up to them they will all jump on the bandwagon.

  21. Nick says:

    Hi there,
    Yes I know exactly what your going through, we have a couple (Swiss/Austrian) who are a bloody nightmare. I work abroad and my wife and daughter live in a beautiful place in the spanish countryside not far from Periana, we overlook the distant lake Vinuela and on good days we see Africa. Our home is an old finca and is great the only problem is our rotten neighbours. They are cowards as when I’m there they hide themselves away and are quiet, the issue is when I’m away they intimidate my wife and daughter. My wife ignores them but I can not. The Guardia and local police seem not to do anything. Do I take the law into my own hands and sort them once and for all, or do I use the media and do it that way. In this day and age I find it incredible that we as human beings still have to put up with this. Or is it the Swiss/Austrian mentallity? I have close friends in Germany and they are astonished that we are subject to this.. Please please can some one help, does anyone know a film crew or paper who can do a report, I would like to show them for what they are .

    Hi Nick,
    Thank you for your comment, I sympathise with you and your family, we know only to well how this type of cowardly/controlling behaviour can affect you, not only in day to day life but also your health and wellbeing. Your scenario is extremely similar to ours, so much so, we were wondering if your comment was genuine and should we reply because there are a lot of nasty people where we live. Let me explain why – all of our problems actually started with an overheard conversation between a German/Spanish couple and a Swiss German/British couple. The British man was overheard making racist remarks about our neighbours one of whom is black, then the gossips got to work, they told our neighbours it was us making the remarks as we look and sound very similar this other couple they assumed it was us. I am short (not exactly thin) with blondish spikey hair and have an accent – the swiss lady looks very much the same from a distance and has an accent. My husband is tall/ thin/ English accent and so is her husband – but, her husband is a member of the BNP, mine is not, he even said to my husband he would never live next door to a black man. So consequently we were blamed and branded racists, we were told by the man nextdoor that when his partner (the black man) arrived in Spain “he would make our life a hell” which of course is what they have tried to do ever since. Make no mistake the other man is truly evil, they goad each on to get their kicks , they very rarely leave the house, have no friends (unless they have been bought), they lie and conive together to dupe not only the authorities but other more naive people who live near them.

    Unfortunately the Guardia Civil are what it says on the tin ” A Civil Guard” ( like our TA) they are not trained to handle this type of situation, if you think about it how often do you see them conversing with the general public or ask questions they are just not efficient, if you equate them to the British Police. Most of their successful arrests are brought to justice by using informants a system they have used for nearly 100 years and has hardly changed since the Civil War. The Policia Local see many of these type of disputes as an irritant – Expat problem, there attitude is best leave them to it, they really do not want to get invloved.

    If it was not for some really kind, caring friends I do not think the website would have been set up they have all helped enormously and fortunately 2 of them know some pretty powerful people here where we live, thankfully we have their full support. However, we know our neighbours will not be able to resist the temptation of starting up again come spring, speaking to previous neighbours from the UK, its what they done there and are continuing here, but this time we are prepared.

    We have made initial contact with a British Sunday Newspaper and obviously if we can get together with a few other expats who have the same type of issues and are willing to come forward, all the more impact we will have to get the journalists out to Spain to put together enough information to publish our story in the UK and Spain.
    We understand, only too well the temptation to take the law into your own hands, but do not – there are other ways to stop bully’s. If you prefer we can find a way of communicating in private so that maybe
    help you further. For now, hang on in there and try to ignore them, to retaliate will only give them the attention they crave.
    Take care

    I am stunned by what I have read here, and disgusted that the British seem to be up to the usual tricks. We lived in Portugal for many years and know what they can be like. We were also looking to buy a place in Huerta Nueva but have to seriously doubt whether this is a good idea after the catalogue and reluctance of anyone to stop this behaviour. Would you please email me privately with more specific details of where your property is and theirs on the development? We can then see if we can avoid them altogether. Also you say the development has been given to the town hall – I assume this means developers have gone bust?

    Having been told about this webpage some month ago I was horrified to read its contents and perhaps rather selfishly concerned what damage it could do to the reputation of the area where I have lived for the past few years.

    Undoubtedly there is a problem and 7 years is an awful long time to live “at war” with your neighbours. I did find it hard to understand why something had not been done sooner and having spoken with a barrister friend about this I was told that there is probably insufficient evidence to get things to court or that the correct protocol has not been followed.

    As the new comments have been added I have watched with interest at people’s thoughts on the situation and I am disturbed at what some people consider to be correct information.

    Whilst I will stand to be corrected I have highlighted below a few examples of what I believe to be errors.

    I sincerely hope that your problems can be resolved.

    Reply: Most people that live on Huerta Nueva are oblivious to the problem. There are over 400 properties on Huerta Nueva and therefore these two owners are very much the minority.

    “The people who own Huerta Nueva” are the property owners. We are freehold owners of our plots of land.

    Communal areas such as the roads, street lighting etc are maintained by the Ayuntamiento. There are some parcels of land that still belong to BMS but they have nothing to do with anyone’s property or land once a purchase has been made.

    Reply: It is not the responsibility of the Ayuntamiento to deal with disputes between neighbours. Regardless of nationality if you have a problem you have to go through the same process to deal with matters. If things have not proceeded as you would have liked perhaps you have not had sufficient evidence, claims or the counterclaims were too strong.

    The German/Spanish couple have in fact now sold their property and left the area however the Swiss German/British are still here. Factually this is incorrect as there is no German link and having researched the BNP members list via the Wikileaks documents there is no reference to the gentleman being a member.

    I am also aware that the British gentleman and your black neighbour have shared dinners together and are friends.

      My only comment to the person who has written and replied to all of the above is that they obviously have never experienced anything like this! These people have asbos against them in England. This is not the first time they have done this and if this is the pleasant neighborhood you live in surely you would be abhorred that this could actually happen to one of your neighbors and that should the community not be pulling together to stop this and allow these people to have the peaceful life they moved their to enjoy. Bullies only exist when people like yourself sit on the fence. If you feel you know so much about the ‘other side of the story’ why would you not approach these people personally to find out for your self what they have to live with and then maybe instead of commenting on a situation they know nothing about really, then you might take action to protect your neighbor and allow them to tell people how lovely Huerta Nuerva is!!!!!!

    Reply : The development has not been given back to the town hall. The Town Hall have adopted Huerta Nueva and therefore now responsible for street cleaning etc. BMS have not gone bust either.

    Can you not pay a private firm to deal with them?

    If the police won’t help there are others who will!

      Hi Tony,
      Nobody would ever believe this, we have just paid a man to clean our pool from last years crap he threw into our pool. It took him 4 weeks and 400€ on chemicals alone never mind his time, it was alive with what looked like tiny eels, we took them to a vet and he told us it was dog worms. That fits because inside the yesso or bread balls he was throwing in was dog mess. Yesterday the man finished the pool and was proud to call us and tell us it was safe to use BUT this morning he started AGAIN its is just unreal!!! So my husband took it out of our pool and threw it back into his. So far in the last 3 years this man has cost us nearly 3000€ of damage not only to the pool thank god we can prove every penny. Thanks for your comment.

    I have just been reading this blog and I am shocked that one family can not only persecute this family but also cause lots of damage to this beautiful area. I could not put up with it, it would make me ill, which I’m sure is happening to this couple. Nobody deserves this. Is there any way we can do something to help not only this unfortunate COUPLE who’s life is being made hell but also for OUR OWN benefit. We can’t let this carry on. Any ideas?

    I am just back from a lovely week visiting my sister Eve and brother in law Paul. It was very peaceful until Saturday, when the Neighbour of Hell returned from the UK. He must have been itching to get back because almost instantly muck and dog crap was thrown into the pool. This guy is an evil twisted bully.
    Paul tried to reason with the other neighbour but it seems he can no longer control this idiot for he seems hell bent on continuing to bully and ruin Eve & Paul’s property. Monday morning there was loud banging from the pool area, when Eve and I went onto the terrace to see what it was, he started shouting abuse at us. Again Eve & Paul tried to resolve the matter but he was being abusive to the both of them, being threatening and name calling.
    He is vilest man I’ve ever came across. The stress he has put Eve & Paul under is disgusting, how they continue to cope with this mad man I don’t know. Unfortunately, no one can help them, no one is interested in their plight. If they were in the UK this would have been resolved long ago but as they are on Spanish soil under their rules they are getting away with it.

    In past holidays I have been uneasy around the pool knowing that they had cameras on the pool area and watching me. You would never imagine you would get this in Spain at my sisters home. I know its frightening for her and this is a terrible feeling to have in your own home.

    This man is so devious that we are sure he is putting rubbish in his own pool to blame Eve & Paul, taking photos etc but lets hope he takes them to court because Eve & Paul have loads of evidence to prove he is the culprit, not them.

    Please support them in any way you can, Eve will gladly show all the evidence she has gathered. These Bullies should not be getting away with their horrible vile actions, if anyone can help Eve & Paul or has any resolutions please contact them.

    Hello-it sounds selfish,I know,but we looked at a house today on Huerta Nueva to rent long term-now I’m scared we might be near these awful people.Can you tell me the location of your house pleas-SO sorry you’re having so much utter grief.

    Sounds to me that both these neighbours need to sit down and sort this out with a mediator, what are the underlying problems with each other. If this was me I would have said look we need to live peacefully next door to each other so lets get on. Keep apart and get on with our own lives. If that does not happen then you need to look at gathering evidence and keeping a record. Invest in hidden securtiy cameras.
    I have just got back from huerta nueva and it seems a lovely place, I would not want to live next to either of you. So I guess your properties are very devalued now.
    I do not know spanish law but i would have thought something could be done. As for their security cameras is their not a privacy law in spain which I belive that would make them illegal if they are overlooking public or other peoples private spaces.

    These people are dangerous, people who abuse others were often abused themselves – its a circle that is very difficult to break sadly

    JUst came across this website and I can really sympathise with these people. My son back in the UK had lovely neighbours with no problems until they moved and someone else moved in. My son owned an ex council house and next door was still council owned. We knew this woman with 3 kids was trouble, her ex husband was a drug dealer and still in prison but father to only one child.
    So I suggested they do nothing to upset her, my daughter in law spoke to her when she was moving in to ask would she like a cup of tea or could she do anything to help and her reply was “Fuck off, I don’t want to be your friend”. From that day my son and his family were subject to constant abuse, eggs thrown at the house, trying to hurt their dog (a very laid back lurcher) by throwing stones at him and leaving chicken bones in the garden to see if it would choke him. She actually physically assaulted my daughter in law taking her children to school (no witnesses), threatened to burn the house down and many many more incidents to numerous to mention. The police were called often but every time she was clever enough to say that they were doing the same to her etc etc. Video was shown of her smashing down a fence panel but they were not interested. Just keep a diary they said of all the time she does something, so we did.
    Then it came to a head when my son had had enough and when her new boyfriend who she managed to manipulate came over and kicked my son’s car putting a dent in it so they had a bit of a scuffle. The woman punched my daughter in law in the face after coming into their garden Then when her boyfriend came back into my son’s garden later my son grabbed a pool cue and ran after him but he ran inside so nothing happened. My son had already called the police and we had a cctv which recorded everything so e showed it to the police even though they didn’t want to look at it. It was obvious who started it and who had damaged the car etc so we thought we had them but the police said as my son had grabbed a “weapon” he could be in serious trouble if he pursued it.

    I personally spoke to the sergeant and he told me the only way it would be resolved was if my son moved and in fact that is what we did. We helped him to buy another property a bit further away and he has had no problem from neighbours since. The neighbour from Hell ran off with someone she met on the internet but came back after a year or so. Her new neighbours that we sold the house to, were a tough bunch who would take no nonsense and as we don’t get involved I have no idea what is happening now , nor do I care.

    So, don’t think it is just Spain, and indeed these people are not Spanish, but when you have totally unreasonable people how can you reason with them. I tried and got nowhere – I asked this woman what had my son or his wife ever done to upset here and her response was “They’re here and I don’t want them here” , nothing else so what could be done.

    Sorry I can’t offer any comfort but I’m sure there are others who suffer the same, in our case the only solution was to move as no-one else could help.
