Noise from Alarms

Noisy car and house alarms can cause problems, often when the householder is on holiday.

Alarms are specifically designed to cause noise when activated and if they are not quickly silenced can affect residents living close by.

If there is a contactable keyholder, known to us the alarm can be dealt with satisfactorily. However, if there is no known keyholder then enforcement action may be required.  We can have a car or house alarm silenced by employing the services of vehicle alarm experts or an electrician. A magistrate’s warrant would be necessary to silence a house alarm when entry to the property is required. This would also require the services of a locksmith and it has to be remembered that all reasonable expenses would be passed to the householder.
