Answered By:

Tube services already operate for up to 20 hours a day with frequent engineering trains operating during the night. London Underground (LU) has made great strides to renew and improve the tracks and rolling stock across the network. Therefore I cannot conceive of any circumstance where a property will be 'blighted' as a result of night services at the weekend.

TfL will be discussing individual cases with householders as they do now and will seek to mitigate any major issues observed as they do with noise complaints about day services.
