Loud Party Music

I hate friday nights because of these people who live in my building. They are young, and are always blasting their music with the door open on their patio. I don't feel comfortable calling the cops but I hope someone does. Another thing about noise, I live right by the front door so I get all the leftover drunks leaving the party too.... god! I just want to read and watch some TV I'm sore and tired LOL! You can even hear drunk girls from this party and they are on the 3rd floor!! Do you have any people you can't stand in your building or neighbourhood??

That's a real tough environment to be living in. It must be so annoying and you really wish that you could do something but the possible consequences of doing something is you could fall out with your neighbours and then life could become hell. I used to experience something like this myself and I couldn't get to sleep at night as in my case the music was going on throughout the night. I just packed up everything and moved elsewhere. This was a personal choice for me but I'm not recommending that you do that although you may want to. I love reading myself and for that you need a lot of quiet time. Thankfully where I am living now it is pretty quiet and I am so happy here. I'm not one for playing or listening to loud music at night. Everyone has their own choices I suppose. Anyway, I wish you the best of luck. Follow your heart and do what you think is right. Andrew

I have the same situation. The problem is one of my neighbors is my sister-in-law whose kids are in their teens who love to play loud music. We are living in one building and you could hear the loud music they are playing most of the time. I tried to it out with her but I guess her kids do not listen to her.

That happens rarely where I live.It`s very uncomfortable but in most cases the family making the party appologizes in advance and the noise stops at 11 o`clock in the evening.In summer we have a big problem as we live near the beach and there is a disco that works all night.

that seems like a very considerate family! of course people can have their fun but it may get a little loud at least they know to end it and are worried about others. i cant remember if the summer here was any louder maybe more people would leave the doors open because of heat.

hi, monkmano. unfortunately, this one one of the "cons" of living in a condominium. you can hear your neighbors pretty well, especially if they have parties. why don't you try talking with the building administrator? i'm sure this is a nicer alternative to calling the cops.

yes this is what i have done, cops are a bit harsh maybe if they were destroying things but theyre just trying to have a little fun i get it. this place does have a lot of nice qualities too so not time to pack it up yet :)

We used to live in the two bedroom apartments here. There were two girls living just above us. One would party and the other was working. And when we talked to the one she would try to get the partier to not be so loud. It was a mess. Finally we moved into the three bedroom we are in now. We've had some weird situations here too but it is better. I don't like having people over us.

There is one neighbor we have who has a daughter with some mental issues. She would be shouting or crying sometimes but good thing that it is really not that loud enough for me to hear in my room. Other than that, the place is quiet. Ooops, I forgot! My sister in law is one blabber mouth! She shouts all the time even when she is just telling something to pick up a piece of paper!

haha i also have some smaller noises, the person above me seems to own an elephant or has really heavy footsteps ill never know for sure. and i bet my sister is the same for other people in her building she has some hearing problems (but i think she uses that as an excuse) so she is quite loud.

Talk to your landlord first about this problem or whoever managed that building, then that person will talk to those young people. I'm sure you're not the only one who feels disturbed with these and besides, I think every complains should be sttled first by the one supervising the building so it won't give you much hassles.

i did email the manager it is a nicer way of doing so, they could get angry if i called the cops maybe not at me directly but its better to ask politely through the manager just in case! i think everyone is being too polite about it in our building no one has seemed to confront them yet, this is maybe the 3rd time so now i step in.

You can always ask them to keep the music down or call the cops, it is within your rights and i think there is suppose to be a certain limit beyond which the music shouldn't go. I live in own house and everyone in my neighborhood is either too dull or too broke to even have a tea party lol

ya these are some college kids i think i emailed the supervisor so I think itll get around to them not as quick as the cops though! I would like a calm neighbourhood like yours my parents live in the next condo complex and they were very disappointed to see that places were rented out to students they tend to have the worst parties! (or best depends on your perspective haha)

This is not allowed where I live so nope. I know you could give your address to someone near your house and have them call the police as a concerned neighbor. they never need to know who called the police.

ya my worry was that the cops would want to come talk to me too, i sent an email to the building supervisor-type lady not sure what her official title is haha but I called them out in it so I hope that will get to them. I don't think it is allowed here but everyone seems to just be putting up with it!

I used to live in an apartment building with three floors and I was on the second floor. The people who lived above me always blasted their music on full blast in the middle of the night . I have tried to ask them to keep it down with no luck. So I ended up calling my landlord to tell them to keep it down. That was the only thing that worked for me 8 years ago.

I expect peace and quiet when I'm in my own house. My upstairs neighbor is impossible to deal with. Their kids are ridiculous, they're like ten years old and just don't shut up, don't stop jumping and don't stop listening to crap music the whole time. Everyone hates them by now. They live on social welfare and are always at home. I've been trying to hold on, but one of these days I might do something to scare them off.

sorry that you have issues with the people around you and the drinking and the music there must be away to deal with it with out calling the police

It is so common in young people that they enjoy loud music and noises.Though not everyone enjoys the loud music especially guys who don't love to party.Sorry dude,i guess you should talk to them.

that really irritates us during the night time and the drink is quite bad and we will end up on the roof and for sure loud music will take a toll on the ears,i can understand the disturb

Monkmano, i love partying, but i think after the party, people should be responsible for their behavior and they need to clean up the place. I think perhaps you can try speaking to those people who are in your building. Speak to them before they are drunk and try telling that that after 11, people need to sleep and hopefully they will get the hint and go elsewhere to drink.

We all happened to meet the same thing,but we have to handle it,sometimes bear but disturbing others is not wise choice.Party can make you happy but can be burden to someone else.So don't be stressed out,things will get better and you may try some soft way to talk to them about it.
