Anybody have trouble with their neighbours and
noise levels from their sax and have you got any
tips as I live in an appartment and don't wany to
invest in a horn if unable to practice.

Al,
You can do several things: (1) get a sax mute, (2) practice at a time when few neighbors are home, or (3) practice away from home (e.g., in a parking garage). Best wishes.
