Zillow.com should list the owner's name.

I feel your pain - neighbors used to be that way also (IMO very RUDE) but according to police there are times that they can enforce it. Didn't do any good to try to politely speak to them (they were NASTY).

(Side note: Wish I had stock in hearing aid companies, these folks will be deaf shortly!)

If you are sensitive to noise, why do you live in a densely populated sub-division? what do the neighbors closer to them have to say.

Thanks guys! The only person I know of that went over there to ask them to stop was a neighbor across the way. Didn't do much good since they couldn't even hear him knocking.

Figures right after writing that post, they turned it down. Now I feel dumb.

The police have been over there before, not just because of me. Their immediate neighbors are actually moving, we saw the Uhaul there tonight on our way back from dinner. I'm not sensitive to noise, I'm sensitive to the bass and the insane vibrations it's causing in my home!

I don't care if people play their music loud, but when it's so loud that birds are flying away and my cup of water looks like the cup of water in Jurassic Park before T-Rex ruined everything, then that's annoying.

It's not all that densely populated either. We have a HOA, but they don't do much. It's a quiet community, so it's really crazy to have someone playing this loud of music.

Also, OP, why not call the police and ask them to explain what the laws are re: noise?

In some counties, noise is considered a private nuisance and you may be able to find info on the web then talk to the owner about this. Have you searched the PW website to see if they have any relevant ordinances or guidelines?

FWIW, I don't think you're being a PITA at all--I would also be upset.
I did search on PW county's website, and Bigfoot is right -the laws are between 10pm and 6am. I guess I shouldn't even be calling because they are within their rights to play their music. I wouldn't mind if they turned it down a little bit.

I personally haven't, but I told the lady on the phone today that I would be willing to point out which house it was, or go over with the officer. I guess I'm a coward! One man across the street went over (he's in his 70s) a month or so ago during one of their bass-marathon sessions, and a few minutes later I saw him walking back to his house, turns out they couldn't even hear him knocking or waving in the windows with the music so loud. Maybe I just have to grin and bear it. Argh!

Then I would get with your neighbors and talk to the home's owner about his rude tenants. Maybe he would be thrilled to build a case to get rid of them, since they've already damaged his lawn.

If you DM me with the offender's address I will privately send you the owner's name and address available from the tax records. Perhaps the owner will have a word with the tenants. I will not post this info publicly, you will be the only one to receive this.

I don't know why, but that made me laugh, so thanks!
