Neighbours get so angry with couple’s makeshift back garden veranda that they move out without saying a word

  • Alexandra Adams and husband Cev were puzzled by their neighbour’s behaviour
  • They say after the veranda was put in their London back garden things changed
  • Their neighbours began to do ‘weird things’ like vacuuming really early or late
  • It culminated with those next door moving out in March without saying anything
  • Alexandra is confused and claims she and Cev, both 43, aren’t party animals

A couple who built a makeshift veranda in their back garden which made their neighbours so angry they moved out without telling them. 

Alexandra Adams and her husband Cev had been on friendly terms with the people living next door to their South London home.

But when finance analyst Cev decided to build a ‘massive’ veranda in their back garden, the relationship between the two households changed. 

Instead of saying hello and smiling at each other, Alexandra says they suddenly stopped and the pair, who are both 43, ‘never saw them’.

Alexandra claims they began to do ‘weird things’ such as vacuuming at unsociable hours and even going indoors when Cev and Alexandra went outside. 

This culminated with their neighbours suddenly moving out without telling them, The Sun reports.

‘It seemed they were making a point,’ Alexandra told the paper. 

Alexandra, who works as a property manager, said the veranda was ‘very visible’ from their back garden and had been put up very quickly by her husband.

‘It was massive, not a delicate little thing, and right up against the boundary between us and next door,’ she said.

‘He’s Turkish and over there every home has a veranda in the garden, so he just wanted the same for our home.’

She said it seemed like this led to a change in their neighbour’s behaviour, who no longer exchanged pleasantries with them.

Alexandra said: ‘If we went out in the garden, they would go inside. Sometimes, I could swear I heard tutting from their side of the fence. It felt very awkward.

‘But it’s our garden and surely our business what we put in it.’

Things finally came to a bizarre conclusion in March this year, when Alexandra gave birth to a baby girl called Lara.

‘That very same week, the couple moved out, without even telling us,’ she said.

Alexandra added that she and Cev aren’t party animals ‘so can’t see what they were upset about’.
