I understand your dilemma, but placing myself in the shoes of the seller, and I suspect many will judge me by admitting this, but I don't pay much attention to the neighbors. I know people who keep studious notes on neighbors, and perhaps it's so they can disclose everything to a buyer in the future? My life is so busy, I can't be bothered, so if (God forbid) there is a problem with the neighbors and I sell the house, and the buyer discovers the neighbors are engaged in illegal conduct, they could make the case I failed to "disclose" the problem. Those neighbors that watch the comings and goings of the neighbors might claim they cannot imagine how I could have missed this conduct! For example, I have neighbors that make a point of investigating police visits to find out specifically if the call was due to a domestic disturbance, break-in, illegal activity, or an accident where the homeowner required assistance. These neighbors, when hearing the police in the middle of the night, are out watching what transpires. I'm a sound sleeper, and I sleep through anything (even earthquakes) so I cannot monitor a police incident with the neighbor at 3:00 AM like the neighbors apparently does. I'm sure that the future buyer of my house, if it turns out a "problem" has occurred with neighbors, might feel that I deliberately failed to disclose these problems. If I tried to explain what I just said, they may feel I'm making up an excuse. That is why I'll be interested to see from other replies if I'm required to "monitor" my neighbors and keep a log, in case future disclosure issues surface if I ever sell the house.
