In three religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam, we are asked to respect our neighbors, but what happens when your new neighbor turns out to be the biggest nuisance to arrive in your neighborhood? Parties till late every night, music on full, when your trying to have a nap after a hard days work and unbearable shouting and screaming coming from the house next door. Do you break the rules and turn against your neighbor? Or do you ask your neighbor nicely to quit all the noise they make?
We both can agree on one thing, noisy neighbors are a nuisance. They could turn out to be your worst nightmare and biggest pain if unchallenged. You will have night after night of no sleep. So leaving your noisy neighbors alone is not an option. You have got to become proactive to prevent your health and life from going down the tube, because of someone else.
Your first task as a neighbor with good manners is to simply go over to your noisy neighbor’s house and ask politely if they can bring down the level of noise, and explain that they are disturbing the neighborhood. If your neighbor is polite enough they will comply with your request, but if the noise level remains unchanged and or increases, then you have a really irritating neighbor who enjoys doing just that, annoying you and the neighborhood with their ignorance.
If the above didn’t work, then you are going to have to call the landlord of your neighbors house and, inform them about the behavior of the current occupants. Your landlord may be hesitant to react, so collecting evidence before hand would be a great idea. Keep your video camera ready in this case, and make sure the time and date is on display. This is to show the landlord at what times your neighbor becomes a noisy nuisance.
If your landlord does not do much but just talk to your neighbors, which is most often the case, then get a letter prepared for evicting your neighbor. This letter works best when signed by many other neighbors in your neighborhood who also can’t put up with the disturbance. Send the letter to the landlord and to your troublesome neighbor. This letter has a very strong effect and works almost every time. However if for some reason it doesn’t and the disturbance continues, then as a final resort call in the police while the noise coming from your neighbor is at its peak.
Calling the police several times on this troublesome neighbor will solve your problems. They will either be asked to move or, you will notice that you can once again enjoy a good nights sleep.
