My dog gets a lot of exercise, he plays and runs and what not for about 2 -3 hours in a day at my parents house while I work. We pick him up after work and he still wants to play but now he wants to play with us. So we try to limit his play to being on the bed because it is much quieter but he will always at least run a little bit in the apartment because he's happy to see us! Now we're moving to a house so that won't be a problem!

I have had a lot of neighbors that were way worse than the loudest dogs I have ever met. I would rather have a hundred dogs than a couple noisy obnoxious people as neighbors. Dogs don't realize it, people do, and are oblivious/clueless.

Do not blame the pets. It is the owner's fault.

It could be the kids either way its disturbing the peace.

Again, either way, it is not the pets' fault, it is the owners' fault.

Get soundproofing done in your home! It’s the simplest answer to your problem. Or introduce your noisy neighbors to QuietRock soundproofing drywall.

tell your LL that for each night they disturb you, you are going to deduct 10 dollars off the rent, and stick to it.
you will see how fast the LL takes of the problem.

I did this, and it worked. I told my LL, I dont care what you do, I dont care how you do it. but these but jobs next door to me are stomping around like a herd of elephants....so for every night they keep me up, minus 10 for you....


problem was solved.

I have had terrible neighbors and completely agree it is very difficult to live close to people who could not care less about other people's peace and quiet. Dear Elvis (my former neighbor from hell) would play guitar, sing (hoooorribly!!!), and play electric guitar to the point I could not hear a person on a phone call...

When I tried to close my windows he would get upset by my lack of appreciation and sing even louder or say very unkind words to me.

However, I don't think it is right to deduct part of the rent and I would not "fix" my problem (pushing the LL to do something about the noise) by creating another one (not paying what I have agreed to on the lease). In my opinion, you are no longer right if you do so.

I just don't think it is the right attitude.

well right or wrong, sometimes money becomes the only leverage you can use.
so if the LL doesnt want to do anyting about excessive noise comming from his building, then tough, minus 10 for you.
