View Full Version : Noisy Neighbours Advise?

21st Oct 2004, 21:46
Self has been living in a cosy quiet neighbourhood since febuary this year.

New neighbours moved in a few weeks ago and have been living it up and loud, late into the night/morning.

Self confronted neighbours about the racket and advised noise control may be around to confiscate audio equipment. This was responded to with something along the lines of:

"you can take your futile threats and pi55 off."

Several neighbours have complained.

Noise control arrives at 2am to confiscate audio equipment.

Ethnic wailing and chanting continues until 5am when noise control pays them their 3rd or 4th visit.

Does anyone have any advise on how to deal with this ongoing problem?

Dudduddud, sympathise with you. Don't know which part of the world you're living in, however, up here in Scotland call the police immediately the racket starts. We put up with similar scenario for many months and dealt with it "nicely" by asking the offenders to keep it down, eventually got sick of getting out of bed at all hours to be nice to a bunch of pricks who've clearly no respect for anyone else's peace and quiet and who don't play by civilized man's rules. Since involving the police we're now sleeping much better!

Getting the police involved can actually start a civil war in your neighbourhood. Do your new neighbours rent the house?

If yes, and you complain to their respective landlord, and others do as well, and the landlord has sufficient balls, he will get these guys out quicker than you might think. This because individuals like those described by you seem to have the tendency not to pay the rent on a regular basis...

Yes they spend a lot of time around the house and go through a phenomenal amount of booze. The landlord spend thousands resurfacing the floor and repainting as well, no doubt that's all messed up now.

Some people eh.

ps: Outa Roa is a nickname for the isles of New Zealand based on the aboriginal name, Aotearoa, meaning "Land of the long white cloud". A moniker coined by the extinguished poet lauret Jam Hipkins of New Zealand Herald fame.

Well dudduddud dude, then time will solve all problems. As always.

Hang on - not as always, but this time it might. Possibly.:suspect:

How about buying a nasty porn movie, and playing it REALLY LOUD !! or get some of your own special brand of wailing and chanting...fight fire with fire I say.... Best of luck !!

What a marvellous idea!
Methinks though that they will enjoy it.

I have decided to ring Noise Control every time reasonable levels of noise are exceeded which will trigger a noise control investigation which will lead to their being kicked out. Thank god they don't own the place (then again, given the amount they drink, i'd be suprised if they own anything!).

Thanks all for your advice.

At least it sounds like your Noise Control people are a whole lot better than the UK Environmental Health jobsworths. Complete waste of Council Tax, they are. :mad:

Get a better job and move to Parnell.

Unfortunately this problem is on the increase world wide. It all boils down to what the Germans call the "Ich AG" - I'm the only one who is important and stuff everyone else.

Having lived with noisy neighbours myself in the past (Nothing quite as bad as you have had to put up with though) I have to say there isn't a awful lot that you can do. Politely asking sometimes helps (often people don't realise they are making such a noise) but this has clearly failed in your case.

Maybe the only way is to fight fire with fire :E

Tell your other neighbours what you are going to do, and get the lawn mower out at the crack of sparrow fart after they have been carousing to the small hours.

Even better, arrange an early morning mowing session with all the neighbours taking part.

Mr Crun, an excellent suggestion as my modest lawn lies right beside a bedroom window that is frequently left open (tv on etc...) after such gatherings.

And Parnell: In my wildest dreams.

ed: It's now after 8pm local time and i have not seen hide nor hair of them. Maybe there were some outstanding warrents :)

Do they still deliver milk to the doorstep in your bailywick ? tiz ones experiennce that people who party to all hours seldom notice a hypodermic needle sized hole in a tinfoil bottle top,Gun Blueing Fluid is a suitable substance, need one say more.

Gun Blue,for the readers of Agatha Christie smells strongly of almonds.

22nd Oct 2004, 07:24
Ah... milkbottles. The good old days. Unfortunatly today we have your standard plastic jobs.
Maybe a good thing as I probably would have thrown one by now.

First class upgrade for anyone who comes up with a method of compromising the safety seal on the new plastic bottles without being detected.

Man - you guys are all taking the wrong approach!
Why must people be so aggressive???
Make friends with the neighbours and join in the party! Have a laugh, have a drink and shag their wives if you can.

Make LOVE not WAR

You have their 'phone number?
Then give them a series of practice early calls every morning.

Firework through the letter box should sort things out.

As a professional DJ, can't say that this is a problem that I have come across too often. First time a neighbour starts next to me they get The Tweenies at a volume sufficient to wake Queen Victoria!!!!! and when I come home at 5am as well.

In fact, the last time, I even had others in the street calling round for requests. Funily enough, the silly moo didn't do it again.

There is a point to this. For not a lot of money, one can purchase a reasonable DJ system on e-bay. Anything with at least 15" speakers and at least 1000 watts power should suffice.
I am led to believe that Mozart, Mantovani and others are best enjoyed through such a system at 7am.

Once the donut next door has had enough, re e-bay it and get your money back. Simple, and rather effective as well!!!!

I never had trouble with noisy neighbours after they copped Junior at 5-6am at 5000rpm.

Pity Junior was out of action when we had the noisy neighbours last year. Instead we got the landlord to boot them out. Also, more than once were the cops called too. Much fun. :E

Do what I do if you do not like living around your fellow man then live as far away from other humans as possible in a big fortified castle. Failing that hunt them down and kill them for their petty noise making, living , breathing etc.

I had a problem with noisy neighbours a few years back.
Music was being played so loud it didn't matter if I was in a different room as them.

Few calls to environmental noise control, details were passed onto the local council.
It took a couple of weeks, but the result was their stereo equipment was confiscated and they were subsequently evicted for being undesirable tenants.

Not sure where they moved to afterwards, but I never heard from them again.
