i just dont bother because it wastes a lot of time......=D
i jus like to let my alarm go off and leave it on now and turn my system up right when i start my car and let it warm up a bit then drive off
only when they are home tho.....and hopefully their baby is sleeping
=D
i can always hear their f*ckin baby crying n stuff.....can i complain about that? like cmon....im taking a shiet and then i start hearing a baby cry...and in my room sometimes when i take a nap i hear a damn baby crying again....=O hahahaha

Don't want to be the b---ch here, but I have neighbours who play their subs way too loud, so I can kind of sympathize with them. So loud that things in my room start to rattle. I work night shifts as well, so this is the last thing that I want to hear when I'm trying to get some sleep. But I don't know you and I don't live next to you, so I can't say if yours is that loud at all. This has been going on for about 2 years (since they moved in) and I haven't complained to them yet, trying to respect their own rights. But one of these days...grrrr. Why couldn't your neighbours have just told you nicely that your music is too loud? I hate people who make a huge scene, expecting you to give in to them. Just wanted to add my two cents.

Im with Druggie on this one. I have a neighbour that moved in maybe a year ago, we have been living here for over 10 years and got along great with everyone here. This bitch comes out and complains about EVERYTHING!! I wash my car, she complains. I listen to my music at an average level, she complains. I have friends come over with their cars SHE FUCKING COMPLAINS. While her damn dog barks all night, she yells at her kids, Her husband starts up his 30year old sports car with one of those cherry bombs at 4:30 in the morning. I never say anything.

In the summer, my parents got some people to come in and clean our carpets, Id have to admit those things are pretty loud, but what can you do? So she comes over and tells us its disturbing her reading. I go fuckin ballistic on her.. get off my property.. if you dont like it MOVE! so on and so on.. to the point it made her cry. Never heard or spoke to her since. She doesnt even look at me now. hahahha but occassionally just to piss her off i wave to her and say good morning. hahaha

Excessive noise fines are something like $100, we got one at a party once. If you get one, I'd invite the cop to check out how loud you play it, and how little it can be heard outside.

Wait, so these neighbors of yours complain about being able to hear your music, yet they cause just as much of a rukus with just their voices and/or friends?

call the cops on them saying u thinkg they are drugs dealers and u saw them havign guns int heir house. Do it every few months from different pay phones to avoid being track. Sooner or later they will move out.

Jokes aside. I dont' see how they can complainw hen it is around daytime. I sometimes heard my neighbours playing thier music int eh day time and I dont mind. I mean if it is like after mind night then yea but come on daytime who cars.

If your neighbour complain again tell them them go away and u have been doing this for yrs and no one ever complain expect them so it iis thier own fault.

This should also read "If you prevent someone from enjoying their private property by scrutinizing every aspect of their lives that makes noise, you could be in trouble here".

People buy single family homes in many cases to enjoy the freedoms that they afford. I live in a condo and I can't have pets or a BBQ. If I moved into a house so I could enjoy those "luxuries", I would not find it reasonable if my neighbor complained if my dog was barking occasionally while playing in the backyard or if people were gathering around enjoying a BBQ in the evening.

Where does it stop? What are the definitions of "reasonable" and "unreasonable" noise?

Surely in the OP's case a gas powered lawnmower would be "excessive". Perhaps if he likes working on his car he has an impact gun - that would be "excessive" according to his neighbor too. If he was a carpenter and had a workshop in his garage with power tools, I guess that would be excessive?

Compared to most apartment buildings, a single family home on a residential street is a MUCH quieter place to live, even when your neighbor is making some noise. I live in a decent building, it's not a run-down shack, but I can hear my upstairs neighbor's bed creak and him taking a piss in the toilet.

I also have a home theater system and even tho I have asked my neighbors if they can hear it and they have said no, I am sure they can. Tolerance is a part of living in the vicinity of other people.

I partly disagree with this.

If his neighbor's house is 100 years old as he states, then it might not feature the same level of sound insulation as newer homes.

While I do think that the OP should take precautions with his home theater (if it is in a dedicated room, then install extra insulation, for example), as I said before when you live in the vicinity of other people there is a certain amount of "give and take" that must exist for everyone to be comfortable.

Understandable, but would you go as far as to complain about your neighbor mowing their lawn?

This reminds me of my neighbor that has a F430, sometimes he wakes my ass up at 8AM. Sure, the first few times I looked out the window and I was like COOOL!, FERRARI! but it kinda gets irritating after a while. Anyways, I understand where he is coming from cuz I too am a fellow enthusiast so I guess it's one of those things i'm going to have to live with or change my exhaust to wake his ass up too

OP should tell us where he lives so we call all drive by with our music blaring and rev the shit outta our cars in front of his neighbors house

^ lol yeah all my friends know about my neighbores too so they honk the horn a few times everytime they get here even tho im already downstairs walkin to his car and honks a few more times when we're leaving. Started doing too because my cousin out front pressed the horn and the neighbore ran outside of his house to tell him not to honk his horn when he arrives. My cousin just rolled his window back up and ignored him.

Holy ancient thread bump, Batman!

Just a thought on this:

From the sound of it, the bitchy neighbors were (and still are) the ones making too much noise, by yapping and whinging and just generally bitching about anything and everything everyone else on the block does. THEY seem to be preventing ALL of their neighbors from enjoying THEIR own private property as well.

Maybe the OP should go to the other neighbors and get them all to write/sign a letter stating that the OP isn't and never has been annoyingly loud, and that these other neighbors simply complain about everything. Next time they go to the city, and the city comes knocking on your door, show them the letter.

I've been in that situation. I have plenty of friends who've been in that situation. You can ask the noisemakers to keep it down, and if they're nice they might, but you can't expect everyone else in the world to stop their lives because of your CHOICE to run your life on a different schedule. And yes, there always is a CHOICE - in this case to get a different shift or a different job. The alternatives may not be pleasant or desirable, but there is ALWAYS a choice. To coin a phrase from a favorite TV show: "There is always choice. We say there is no choice only to comfort ourselves with the decision we have already made. If you understand that, there's hope. If not .."

Quote:
Bylaws may have times of effect in them, or they may not. You would have to read the noise bylaw that governs the area you are in.
If the OP is not actually making that much noise, and nobody else has a problem with it, maybe he should actually look up the bylaw, make sure he's within in, and then when the neighbors complain, tell them yeah, go ahead, call the cops... when the cops come, they'll see that the neighbors are being unreasonable, and eventually they'll just stop coming when those people call.

I often thought that the ultimate "karma" situation (I love..."Earl") would be for the guys who hold all night loud parties...to have a new neighbour move in next door...and he ran a chainsaw repair shop in his back yard. Can you imagine the payback to a severely hung-over partier as at 7.01 am the guy next store began a 17,000 rpm tune up on some Macs and a bad bad boy Husky?

i did tell them to call the cops and they havn't said anything since. but the thing is that i might get a letter from the city thats all. and if i do...i should just let my car idle for 5mins before i turn it off just to let them know that the more they complain, the louder its gonna get. I could understand if i was revving my engine or something at 3am in the morning but the fact that i just come home and parking my car is something they cannot deal with, that pisses me off.

Technically, the new by-laws says you can only do it for 3mins or else you CAN get a ticket. Just do it for 2:59 secs and you should be fine, just to let you know as your neighbors might actually call the cops to ticket you for the idling violations LAWLS.

I know this is for Vancouver for sure, not sure about the other cities, maybe someone else can confirm.

Just think of all the fun you get to have when you move. When I went back to my old house to grab a few cords and stuff still there, I revved like mad past my asshole neighbors house, because he alwasy complained about our "driving too fast" ie loudly but not cars that actually drove fast but were quiet. He came and stood at the end of our driveway so I just ignored him when he left. Then when I went to leave I bounced off the limiter a few times outside his house and did a nice smoky burnout. He came running out the door yelling away as I went around the corner.

The house is now lived in by members of the local football team. I wonder how that's going

^I lived in a basement suite once, and a couple guys from a rugby team moved in upstairs... most of the time they were quiet, but when they decided to party... it was LOUD, and it was ALL NIGHT.

Fortunately we had the breaker panel for the whole house in our suite... a couple minutes in darkness usually calmed them down pretty quickly. We also had the central furnace... a little piece of wire jumpered across the thermostat wires could make it uncomfortably warm for them within 15-20 minutes
