So me and my other half have quite a turbulent relationship, sometimes things get really loud and then fizzle out afterwards.

Anyway, we had an argument earlier around 5.30pm and there was screaming, it lasted about 12 mins. We argue maybe 2-5 times a week.

Our neighbours are friendly with our landlord, 20 mins after our argument ended the landlord knocked on the door. He said that he has had a complaint and if there is another he will get us evicted. We are good tenants in every aspect, outside of these arguments.

We work very hard to live comfortably and pay rent on time, we're not exactly playing extremely loud music through all hours of the night. We are not anti-social.

Besides the obvious answers of stop arguing, what should our next steps be? We've been left feeling very anxious and on edge at the thought of being evicted as a result of behaviour that we thought was completely within our right and legal.

What are our rights? Should we contact the letting agent about the landlord coming and knocking on our door like that?

A bit of extra info: the neighbours have a child who has extremely loud tantrums for upwards of an hour, and we hear every second of it, it's far worse than the noise we produce.

Unless real violence is involved,neither the landlord or the neighbour has the  right to cause you embarassment in this way.All normal couples argue one way or another,and your way is probably healthier than passive aggression.I would certainly make your displeasure known in writing.

Leave, then rent something detached? Possibly with an outhouse... on the moors?
