OH MY..How can you handle this?

Noise everywhere! - Noise all over!
October 20, 2012 6:36am CST
I'm talking about a noisy neighborhood. We are leaving in an apartment she stays in 3rd floor and my wife and I stay in the 2nd floor. Early in the morning I can hear her speak like holding a microphone,she laughs loudly as she could without considering its early dawn. She walks down the stairs like no one at the lower floor. She scream with another neighbor in the other street like they near from each other. And this is the worse of the worst,their apartment now is under renovation, the hammer,the drills and her noise mixed up together its more noisy than before.Oh my, I hope one day I can concentrate to be here in my lot without those distraction noise from her. Do you experience this? How you can handle this? Thanks!

We have lived in this low income apartment complex for fifteen plus years. When we lived in a two bedroom we had tenants above us. The two girls that lived in the apartment above us were not good ones. One partied to all hours. I was able to talk to the other one who worked nights and she quieted it down quite a bit. I only had to call the police once.

A really annoying situations I don't want to make any noise myself when I know theres someone who will get disturbed but some people sometimes just nothing, i mean know nothing, feel nothing.(sigh) Thanks!

I would make it apparent to the tenant that the noise bothers you. If it continually happens I would tell the manager. If that doesn't do any good I would call the police. Going through these channels should do the trick. It is always said when the police has to be called.

Haven't experienced living in a condo or a building with many neighbors around. But there's an instance here in our neighborhood that a drunk neighbor suddenly blew his car horns in the middle of wee hours. Good thing his uncle punch him in the face and he fall down sleep at once -duh.

If the landlady will be nice and considerate then I would prefer to stay in a compound rather than in an apartment like this this is really hard but still keep going with these neighbors maybe I should try talk to her. Thanks!

You can read about Donald MacDonald on http://lowthian.tripod.com/jokes.html. Our newspapers have introduced the phrase, "Neighbours from hell". If your neighbours won't see reason, they want to sleep sometime. You could team up with other neighbours to ensure that they can't.

Haha this is funny.But at least you made me laugh for that.Thanks!

I haven't experienced this yet and I wouldn't want to experience this. If I were you, I would ask the landlady about the rules in the apartment.If the neighbor is violating the rule,then I would write a written complain and make amicable settlement with your neighbor.Otherwise, you may go to the Local council.

I think that is the best thing to do now.Thank you for responding. I may settle with her soon as I can no longer tolerate the noise.

Good thing i am raise in a restaurant business. It is some sort of my study room and my playground as well. I think i'm kinda use to rushing noise while studying. I learn how to focus even if my surroundings are kinda noisy. I think my adaptability is really an edge.
23 Oct 12
Good for you!But sometimes even how patient you are with these kind of people it will come to end.And I feel the end is near haha.. Thanks for responding!

I call this "miserable" I don't like to be disturb I want a peaceful environment.In your case maybe you can try to talk to her and explain to her about your miseries,she may or may not at least you've tried rather than getting an eyebags every morning.
23 Oct 12
Agree, its a misery.I think you are right I would talk to her about this case so I can have peace to call.haha! Thanks for responding.

I think you have the right to complain on your lessor about that issue. You should confront your neighbor also about her attitude. She should consider also her neighbor. She should respect you so that you will respect her too.
23 Oct 12
She don't know these words I think, she don't even have any feelings at all.I just hope I can settle with her before my wife will come back home as she doesn't want to much noise.I think I will do as you've said. Thank you for responding!

Four the last 7 months or so my upstairs neighbor would keep her 2 year old up until 2 in the morning some nights.. then there were other nights she wasnt even home.. So I had no time to really adjust one way or another.. I sleep in the living room so when he would jump off the couch and the big boom was right at my head.. well their just lucky I kept my wits and didnt go up there.. it wouldnt be a good thing.. Two weeks or so ago they moved so its not a problem now.. well until who ever moves up there.. To some degree I can understand noise regardless of the time of day or night.. But if it interupts my boys sleep then it will be a problem and I will say something the first time.. My oldest has school and my baby needs his sleep before I have to drop the oldest off at school.. If my baby doesnt get his sleep he gets grumpy.. Well I will end up getting grumpy at the neighbors if that happens.. I can see that its really bad, i would express this peacefully to your neighbors.. If they dont listen, either go to the manager or call the police.. Hopefully it doesnt have to go that far..

I will take your advise,I will make a way to stop her creating noise all the time.She don't have any consideration at all. You are right I will do some action to this. Thank you for responding!

I also have come across this kind of situation,a year ago.There was a family who rented a house next to ours and daily used to do lost noises by speaking loudly and also turning the volume of their T.V. To maximum.Due to which i wasn't able study properly.
22 Oct 12
That was quiet annoying,its not really acceptable but sometimes we still need to consider but they don't. Thanks!

I don't know what are the rules there in your building/apartment, but maybe you can ask the landlord to look into the renovations. In my previous apartment, they have this rule that renovations must be done only on specific days during specific times. This is to avoid disturbing the other tenants who are sleeping, or basically just staying in the house for peace and quiet.
22 Oct 12
In our building those rules cannot followed sometimes it pissed me off.But I don't know why some people don't consider others. Thanks for your respond.Great day!

This is one of the problems that people will face when living in close proximity with your neighbors. Luckily, my neighbors are quite far from my house and my house is not near the roadside. I really sympathize with your situation because I too get distracted and won't be able to concentrate if there's too much noise. Some people can work through loud noises but not me. Perhaps you can get ear plugs and tune out the noise or like everyone else had said, sound proof your house with heavy curtains. That should keep the noise out.

Sound great for you,lucky enough to be away from those kind of neighbors. I think of considering your advise.Thanks.

It's really annoying to have this kind of neighbours. I think if you want to solve the problem, maybe the best way is going to their home and tell them you feel uncomfortable , of course you had better say it in a nice way in order that they won't get angry. Maybe they don't feel they are disturbing you. Or if you don't want to say to your neighbours, you can make your glasses of your window soundproof. Or if it is possible, sell your apartment you are living now and buy a new one. Just my opinion, hope you can live better soon.
22 Oct 12
I think your right I should do something about this.I think I will consider to have a new home away from those disturbances. Thanks for the positive response.

Perhaps you can try to understand why she make so much noise first and tell her that you are disturbed by her in the morning and ask her if she could lowered down a bit. If not then you all should look for alternative like renovating your room with sound proof walls and celling.
22 Oct 12
That will help I think I should try to talk to her about this. Thanks!

I assume you have to cope with the renovation if you like it or not. The only thing you can ask for is not to start too early or work late at night. I have neighbours like that too, even fighting, plus a handicaped kid always making the same noise. It drives me crazy but the more I pay attention to it the worser it is. You could ask your neigbhours if it's about other kinds of noise to visit your place so they can hear it by themselves. It's not said they know how noisy the houses are.

For the renovation it will be fine with me but listening to her noise almost everyday that makes me sick. I will just try to move out after the contract will ended. Thanks!
