How much shitty techno can one idiotic stoner 17-year-old listen to in a single Sunday?

THIRTEEN HOURS' WORTH!

SOLID since 7am until now!! I am sick to death of living in a rubbish, rat-infested stinkhole in Islington where the Council couldn't give a rat's arse if the Chechen War was being conducted in one of the flats - AND paying £100 a week for the privilege!

How on earth can I write a dissertation when my keyboard is literally vibrating across the table?

What legal recourses are there apart from going through the Council's stupidly involved and pointless process of filling out a "noise diary", waiting for a "Listening Officer" to come over and check it out for themselves before dragging the whole matter through Court? For heaven's sake, I'm only here for another three months - I just want to be able to write and study in peace!

Arrgh!

Or call the cops and tell them you presume there is a drug smugling ring and some fishy stuff going on there.

If he's really a permanent stoner he's probably got a lot of dope around the place (perhaps enough to get him locked up a few days).

Toni,
I lived in the exact same environment for 3 years, I called the Southwark Council noise team almost on a weekly if not few day basis. Unfortunately, the law is always on the side of the criminal in England, hence the reason I moved out of the flat.

Your best bet will be to study in the university library or at someone else's house because I guarantee you that theres no way you'll get peace for the next 3 months. If you follow council guidelines & procedures then you'll still be taking notes in your diary next year cos it takes years to actually prosecute or get them served with an ASBO!!!

Trust me, you wont win, its better if you moved out or studied soemwhere else.


Good luck in any case!

Is this guy part of your university - does he study there or elsewhere and is the flat itself owned by the university? If so, then you can get them to act as there will no doubt be a clause in your tenancy which states that excessive noise is not permitted - if he doesn't comply then the University can take action. We had this at my old University accommodation before I moved out into a house with friends, very effective it was too when the person was told to turn it down or they would be chucked off their course.

Failing that, the odd 'accidental' power cut wouldn't go amiss; I presume that to make a substantial amount of noise he will have a fairly powerful set of speakers. Perhaps you can keep tripping the switch and suggest that as he turns it up the speakers are sucking too much power and that it is this which trips the power off due to an overload - eventually his own desire to listen to his music without interruption from the cuts will cause him to turn it down, and hence once you deem it to be at an appropriate level you can stop flipping the switch.

The police don't give a fuck so don't bother calling them.

If it is an apartment try talking to the management.

If it is a house... Ehhh.. move I guess.

No, there isn't much you can do assuming you already tried the diplomatic channel of talking to the dipshit.

I have some obnoxious neighbors. I have resigned myself to the fact I will just have to outlive them.

F$"&ing Noisy Neighbour!

I used to have a problem with a neighbor's noisy f$"&ing. Granted, hearing screams and the sound of humping through a paper-thin wall when you're trying to meet your dissertation deadline is not quite as annoying as techno at full volume, but still not what you want to hear when you're in all the wrong mood. Since asking a grown man to tone down his sexual activities out of respect for my blue balls and workload was out of the question, I swapped apartments with a friend for a few weeks. Turned out my neighbor moved away during that time and was replaced by a frigid woman whose loudest noise was brushing her teeth.  Smile

As for your obnoxious neigbor... If you have a couple of mean-looking friends with scars and tattoos, sending them over to explain his noise is annoying their boss could be fun and effective.  Smile

On that same thread if you have friends who are in law enforcement having them stop by your place in their cars, or in uniform could work wonders.

I discovered this by accident when my neighbors were taking apart a car in their driveway and had their music cranked. I was pushing my marked police bicycle into the house. Their eyes got big and the stereo went off. They have since moved the mess to their back yard and music is no longer an issue... Their screaming at each other still continues though.

The peacemakers approach- Buy/loan him some wireless headphones to use and explain you are trying to study or just talk to the guy.

The avoidance approach- go study in the library, internet cafe or a quiet coffee shop.

The counterproductive revenge approach- Do something really loud at a time of day when you know he is sleeping and/or narc him out for the drug use. The cops might respond more quickly to that complaint.

The only way to deal with noisy neighbours is to give them a taste of their own medicine.

Find out when the idiotic stoner 17-year-old normally sleeps and which morning he has a lie in. When you found the most unsocial hour when he is having his beauty sleep, wire up your speakers and woofer where they will cause maximum noise for the neighbour and then play something like Brotherhood of Man, STEPS or S Club 7 at full volume. Chances are your neighbour will complain within 13 minutes and when he does just simply point out that this is what you tolerate for 13 hours.

Forget the council or complaining through the official channels. It will be donkey years before the council/regulators will do anything and then the idiotic stoner will complain about his human rights to enjoy rap music.

Back in college, my neighbor got into the habit of partying very late on weeknights.

He kept me up late one night before a big exam, so I decided I'd had enough. The following morning, I turned my speakers around and faced them up against his wall.

I then grabbed an old xmas cd, queued up "Dogs Barking Jingle-Bells", and put that track on repeat.

When I returned 3 or 4 hours later, he was very angry, but had definitely learned his lesson.

Just man up and go ask him to turn it down. Be polite, but firm.

When I was living in Arizona and going to flight school, my roommate and I lived in some pretty nice apartments. 2 bed/2 bath, 1 floor. However, the building was 2 stories and we somehow got stuck with a pack of meth-heads above us. They had 7 people living there and listened to buttrock all throughout the night. I was getting pretty sick of it since, in the summer, I had to fly at 4am (plane's performance charts were limited to 40C or 104F and the temperature would easily reach that by noon). So one Wednesday morning, at 2am, I was awakened by loud, thumping subs and buttrock for the third time in as many days. I got dressed, went and knocked on their door, and informed them of my situation. They were all strung the f*ck out and pretended to listen, agreeing to only bump their music that late on the weekends. Things were alright for the rest of the week. Then next Monday rolled around.

At 3am, I once again am awakened to buttrock and now they were rearranging their livingroom. Dragging furniture and shit everywhere, I couldn't take it. Got dressed, stuffed my .45 in my pants (because meth-heads are crazy and I was going to be extremely rude), went up to their door, and kicked it HARD a couple of times. Someone finally answered and I very politely told them to "turn that f*ucking shit down, stop moving the f*ucking furniture, and shut the f*ck up." They were not very receptive to me and gave me a piece of what was left of their retarded, fried minds. I warned them that any more of this sh*t and I was going to make sure they were evicted. I left to the sounds of them saying they were sorry and please don't do that, we have no where else to go. The very next night, same shit.. but this time they pissed off my roommate too.

Well, we called the police explaining the situation. They said that a unit was just a few blocks away and would be coming right over. Then we strapped up, went upstairs to their door, and kicked on their door in hopes of getting them to open it (to give the officers the chance of catching some drug use in plain sight lol). Sure enough, we stood in their doorway watching their friends stunned reaction that someone had opened the door as they had just put down their meth pipe on the table. We waited there for another minute arguing with them until the cops showed up. They came up the stair and saw the meth pipe in the hand of one of the meth-heads leaving the room and went in and cuffed everyone. A couple more units came and they searched the place, finding a bunch of small baggies of meth. With everyone gone for at least 24 hours, my roommate and I decided it was time we break our lease and move on. The next day, we found a house and left that sh*thole forever.

Quoting IAirAllie (Reply 27):
narc him out for the drug use.

Had my neighbors just been smoking pot, I would have had no problem with their drug use and would not have called the police. However, meth is one of the most destructive drugs on the planet and is a danger to us all. Most of the stoners I have lived next to are very good people and have no problem turning down their music or helping you fix your computer. All you have to do is be polite about it.

I don't believe I need to "man up" to do that... I don't feel the noise is a challenge to my concepts of masculinity as such and feel I can separate the two!  Wink

I don't want to get involved with this person. As others have said, I will either grin and bear it for three months and stay on the safe side, or I will spend my time working in the library. If this was a village, or even my home town, I could do that - but in Central London? You guys come and do it - I want to live to graduate.
