Dear PoPville – Looking for Advice on Dealing with Loud Neighbors

Dear PoPville,

We moved into our rowhouse apartment about a year ago and were pleasantly surprised by how quiet our neighbors were. Unfortunately that changed a few months ago when new people moved in next door who love to party, playing loud music and having large groups of people talking loudly on their back patio late at night – over the weekend AND during the week. We’ve tried talking directly to the neighbors, asking them to keep it down at night (they blew us off), telling our landlord, who spoke to their landlord, and even have called in noise complaints a few times, but nothing has seemed to get the message across.

Short of moving to a new place, we don’t know what else we can do. I’m all for people having a good time and like to go to a good party myself, but when its on a regular basis and keeps us from sleeping, it gets pretty exhausting after a while. It seems pretty ridiculous that we should have to go through the time, money, and effort of moving while they get to continue keeping everyone up at night having a good time… Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks.
