Default Help me out: Daytime noise violations?

The apartment above us, I think they want to be DJs or something. The bass is so bad, I can feel the reverb in my chest. This goes on ALL DAY LONG and sometimes into the night. I've been told I can't say anything unless it's after 10PM, is this right? Is there nothing I can do during the day when these people are being unreasonably loud?

Because I'm about two seconds from going upstairs and knocking on their door.

I would say something to the landlord, but if you haven't said anything to them personally maybe go politely ask them to turn it down first? Only if you feel safe doing so of course....

The landlady seems unresponsive. She can't hear it so it's like she doesn't care.

I'm not really afraid of them. They are all big 'thug' men but about as intelligent as a rock based on the conversations I hear them having on the balcony.


My roommate said she has told them they're being loud before, so apparently they are aware of it. I was thinking just because it's an apartment of men, maybe that's why nobody complains? I'm not sure. There's no way the floor they're on can't hear them too. More than us, I'd bet.

Since your landlady seems indifferent, I'd try asking them politely. Maybe even leave them a note on their door, if you don't feel comfortable confronting them face to face.

If that fails, I'd call the police the next time they do it. The worst thing that can happen is that the cops say, "Sorry, we can't do anything until after 10."

I'll try leaving a note. I don't want to be rude, but at the same time it's pretty clear they don't care.



I'm on a lot of cough medicine for bronchitis right now and for whatever reason that makes me fearless and I'm finally fed up to the point of going up there myself. Little spitfire.

Maybe you could do a little research on your city's indoor noise ordinances or noise ordinances in general. Maybe something there is written. Police might not even know or care enough to do anything. But if you're armed with what the law actually is, it might help. I'd be nervous to go to their door. You never know what kind of nuts are behind closed doors. A note maybe. But if they cared enough to respect a note, they probably would have already had the imagination that their noise is disturbing other people. They probably don't even think about that in the first place. That would drive me nuts too, constant noise. I hope something is done about it. What about the rental property laws in your area? Would there be anything that the landlord is required to do to maintain an acceptable livability for other tenants...in the way of a law or regulation....or a landlord/tenant act?

I'd go up there and knock and politely ask them to quiet down. If that doesn't work, when my old neighbour would put on his death metal music REALLY loud, we'd put on opera music REALLY loud - all of my neigbours on my floor did. He got the message.
