People who live in the city or suburbs will have experienced a noisy neighbor at some point in their lives. There are numerous ways that neighbors can annoy the people around them. Some people have loud parties, others play music at all hours of the night and many people have dogs who bark all night long. Living with large amounts of noise is frustrating and can stop many people from enjoying their home. Thankfully there are a few things that people can do to get their neighbors to quiet down
One of the easiest ways to deal with this issue is to speak with the neighbor. Some people are simply unaware that their noise is bothering others. Many neighbors will try to be quiet if they know they can be heard by other houses. However it is important to be aware that not all neighbors will be this considerate. Some will respond in a hostile manner and refuse to do anything about their noise levels. The more obnoxious neighbors will attempt to make more noise in order to irritate the person making the complaint. In these situations it is important to remain calm and avoid confrontation.
If a person does not respond to this tactic it is time to make a complaint. This can be done by contacting the police and filling out a form. People who live in apartment building should contact their HOA. This is a group that is in charge of building issues such as parking, garbage and noise.
