Hi so I live in a condo, which is normally quiet. Well lately my neighbors downstairs have been extremely loud when “doing it”. I’m not one to complain but it’s so loud it’s been waking up my two year old and he’s been having trouble going back to sleep. Any suggestions on how to handle this situation ? P.S my neighbors don’t speak English 😅

I’ve also tried the banging on the floor and they just got louder.

What time of day is this happening? What times are the designated quiet times in your condo building?

it’s happening anywhere from 11pm-5am. The condos designated quiet hours are 10pm-8am.

Have you documented the incidents and notified your landlord or management company?

You could leave them a note reminding them of quiet hours, or just speak with your landlord 🙂

Can you buy a white noise machine for your sons room in the meantime? I would be so annoyed!

Document the incidents! Heck, it may sound super awkward, but take a smartphone video with sound so you can record the time if it’s infringing on quiet hours. Then take your evidence to the management people and let them handle it. I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this!

Management isn’t usually very helpful in these situations if you’ve already tried banging and thet neighbors make it worse. But you should still go down that route first so that you have a record of complaint.
If you are very angry then take your son downstairs with you to them at a more reasonable hour and explain to them. When someone sees your son who is being disrupted, it’ll have a bigger impact. No one wants to hurt a child in any way. (They obviously don’t give a sh*t about you.)

Unless it’s happening consistently during established quiet hours, let your neighbors live. Otherwise, document and report to management.
And don’t bring your baby to see these people on some type of guilt trip…those of us without children having loud crazy sex don’t care that your two year old is trying to sleep. Just being honest.
You do have a right to quiet hours that are established…but not anything more so just because you have a kid.

If you live in a condo, you probably have someone working reception, perhaps security all day/night? I would call down to complain about the noise first, they will go up and talk to them. Of it persists, call again and they’ll check. If it doesn’t help then they’ll tell you to call the police with a noise complaint. That’s the way to deal with it. Don’t do it personally.
