Very good points. I am classifying the noise from next door at this point number two. It is ghetto gangster noise with the annoying thumping vibes through the walls. The apartment management has zero tolerance for it. Neighbor knows it. I am hardly ever home, every two weekends, but I am a long term resident and seek peace and destressing from my business travel.

It is daytime noise. Still annoying. I do think he removes flyers from my front door. For that I give him leeway. But nine PM I knock on the door and ask for silence.

He never has his noise after six.

My complex used to be peaceful but they allowed a lot of that type of people to rent the last year. It is getting close to the point of moving on. The rent is among the highest for the amenities. Funny how you would think the low lifes would gravitate to the cheaper places.

I am renting well below my class. I shudder to imagine paying over $700,000 for a house a mile west of here only to find out my next door neighbor is a sports star who blares ghetto noise. I would put a gun to my own head if I had made such a financial commitment!

Landlord gets the guaranteed cash, you get the noisy neighbors

It's called Section 8 housing, Holmes. The funny part is that your tax dollars are paying for it. Yes, your money, Holmes. Landlord gets the guaranteed rent (which he undoubtedly has jacked up for the risk of damage to his place), and you get the shitty neighbors. Great system, no?

The only solution NEW
by: Why Tolerate?

Entitled and clueless would be my neighbors. Clueless doesn't really fit as they are from someplace south of the border so their "culture" (oxymoron if there ever was one) - consists of loud salsa music, loud talking, loud everything as a daily way of life.
I am all for giving people a dose of their own medicine. As soon as I get a nice loud speaker, I plan on attaching it to a long extension cord and playing heavy metal rock as loud and as long as I want.
My other neighbors ? Since I am the only one that seems to complain and have called the police on numerous occasions, they'll have to suffer through it. I might give them fair warning (or not). Called the police last night after politely and quietly speaking to these offenders (at 01:00 am) who said the party was almost over ("in a few minutes"). Their idea of a few minutes was 90 minutes more and that was only when the police came - (02:30 am). The wife's answer (in broken English) was "I pay my taxes".
SO DO I - Shut the uckfay up !!!

Police NEW
by: Dave

Go directly to the police station and explain your problem honestly so that there is a starting point with your asking for help, creating case paperwork. Give it at least a week, then physically go to the station and file paperwork again. Give it another week and by then you should have an officer in charge of your problem that you can contact every day if you need to. That officer should be investigating you continuing breech of peace crime. If they do not assign one person, complain every single day about the day before, except now you bring th printed photographs, videos, and audio recordings. They will stop them so that you stop on them.

Boom boom Police can’t stop NEW
by: Poliey

I live in Charlotte,NC residential neighborhood. A new bar opened up around the corner. They just started food truck Friday and base is killing me. You can’t drive down the street, people every where. It looks like fun, but Friday night I sometimes would like to just chill with a drink and a movie. But the base! I called the police and nothing. I went over and asked to turn the base down and they turned it up. They said they have the proper paperwork. HOW, WHO can I call to revoke their permit or whatever ever paperwork they have. I’m going to snap! No matter how loud I turn my tv up or put on my white noise machine the base is still booming. And it hurts my ears.

Trashy neighbors and why hasn’t anyone else complained? NEW
by: Heather

Ouch to the person who had the bar move in near by. I don’t know what I would do but I would think that would qualify easily as noise pollution and be a finable offense in a residential neighborhood.

I’m in the same situation as OP where I can hear my neighbors through the wall, even feel the vibrations on the floor at times, and it’s during the day but I hear it over my TV! I don’t want to have to wear headphones so they can ignorantly blast their music. I think what’s more annoying than anything is that our brains are drawn to listen to it and try to detect what we are hearing, but it’s not loud enough to make out what I am hearing.

I have heard them fight many times in less than a year. I’m the newest neighbor though and I don’t want to put myself at risk.
