new neighbours (from hell!!)

just after some advice from anyone who's been in a similar situation....
 
me and my partner live in a ground floor maisonette, which previously had a very quiet, pleasant young couple upstairs. we both respected eachother and were considerate when it came to noise levels. everynow and then we would play music loud and they would too but always with consideration, never early or late etc.
 
yesterday these 2 young girls moved in upstairs and from 9.30 am until now, yes over 24 hours, the noise hasn't stopped. they've had these guys round all night blaring club music and partying. even now at 10am they're being very loud, stamping around and shouting.  now i don't want to ruin anyones fun they've just moved in so last night i let them have their fun. however if it continues tonight i dont know what the best plan of action is. i guess talk to them would be the obvious 1st step. be polite and pleasant and just inform them the walls are thin and we live in a very quiet neighbourhood where its mostly old people and couples with young children .
 
maybe im jumping the gun, last night was saturday night and their 1st night, however they are very loud and obnoxious. shouting and swearing outside the flat where neighbours kids are often out playing. my girlfriend has already said she's moving!! but its just a pain we only moved 4 months ago and really like it here, why should we have to move because of some little sh*ts who have no respect.
 
rant over. any help / advice appreciated.
 
cheers

    1st yes its a massive thing to have bad neighbours but lets put this is perspective.

    1st day/night, girls gone mad a bit, if they are still stomping around at this time they havent been just drinking, so will fcked in more than one way.

    i'd leave it, wait a day or two (pref, comedowns are a bitch) and have a nice friendly chat.

    If things persist, then up the game, complain to the landlord.

    Could just be a housewarming party, but yes a 24 hour housewarming party does not bode well I'm afraid.....
     
    I feel your pain, I had 2 years of this with my next door neighbours teenagers. But they appear to now have got boyfriends with cars so now they spend saturday nights driving round and round in circles.

    Having a word doesn't work, if they're drunk/high they'll tell you where to go. The police go round and break it up, they just do it again the next weekend.

    You can either wait until they grow up and get it out their system.... or move.

    Leave it as long as possible, but if it continues, I think you will need to go round and say hello, make as much small talk as you can manage and then as you're saying goodbye, say... 'oh, and then use her name, next time you're planning a party can you let us know as we might be able to stay over at my mum's if she's away, because we didn't get much sleep last night. 

    If she doesn't say sorry or at least look sheepish, I would find out who rents it to them, assuming it's rented, and make the landlord's life difficult - find their address and telephone number. If they live nearby, you can make yourself a nuisance.

    We had a chav couple move in above us when we lived in a flat. They had met in a shelter for kids who's parents had had enough. It's a well known doss house in the town.

    Anyway, first night, similar to you, lots of noise and hoovering at gone midnight. I had to be up early for work. I went and knocked on the door. I don't see why I need to be gracious to people I don't even know. If they get away with it once, the standard is set. So I knocked on his door. Very meek and apologetic and the noise stopped.

    Little we could really do about the Happy Hardcore blaring out through the middle of the day, as annoying as it was. More noise at night, so I knocked the door. Another meek and mild apology ensued.

    I think I had cause to knock 4 or 5 times. So I found out who the landlord was and phoned him. Very concerned and said he'd do something but nothing happened. We'd also heard them arguing and physically fighting a lot. Things were getting broken. I told their landlord as much, but inspite of kind words, he didn't really care. These degenerate a55holes had their rent paid by the council, the landlord got his cash, allowing him the smug comfort and belief that he was helping those less fortunate than him.

    We chose the block of flats as it was filled with pensioners. A lovely place, very friendly and quiet. These muppets were ruining it for all the residents in this close knit block.

    It came to a head one night, about 3am when the chavs were arguing (again). Only this time, you could clearly hear doors getting smashed, glass (mirrors?) being broken and plenty of stuff being thrown about.

    As much for my own sanity and the safty of the chavette upstairs, I called the police. They promptly turned up, knocked my door and I took them to the flat in question. Leaving them to it, I went home, leaving my door ajar to hear what happened next.

    When the chavette answered the door, the cops knew her by name. She tried to deny anything happened but the cops eventually talked their way in. The damage was evident as the coppers were boll0cking the couple for wrecking the flat, that charges could be brought if the owner requested. The chavs didn't care, as in their mind, the council, their rent payers, would pick up the bill.

    So there was us, below, both on low incomes, struggling, trying to enjoy a nice flat and the tw@s upstairs had it all on a plate and did feck all for it.

    I got a new job and we moved the month after. I really felt for the kind old ladies that lived there. Last I heard, the chavs were expecting offspring...

    Not really much help other than a bit of empathy and to advise you to adopt a zero tolerance policy. Get in nipped in the bud now.

    Before we go into any crazy stories or situations, the best and most normal thing to do, would be go to introduce yourself to them and explain that you are a brain surgeon so you would be grateful if they are a bit more conscious of the noise levels in future.

    Assuming they don't heed your advice, its crazy story time.

    I had the same problem mate. Now I'm usually a very laid back and quiet type of guy, but after having these 20 somethings blaring music out at past midnight for over 2 weeks. I ended going over and kicking on there door and asking them (using the C word about 30 times) to turn the music off. A few of my neighbours also poured out after my midnight rant and backed me up. I haven't heard a peep since. I dont advocate violence unless your protecting your family, but we all have a limit, I just hope they wise up before they push your last button mate.

    They have just moved in so it sounds like a housewarming party - it's difficult to assess right now what they will be like in future, so maybe wait and see how they are over the next few weeks and take it from there.

    Whereas I do appreciate the "housewarming" thing , a couple of things would concern me ,  the shouting and swearing in front of the Kids would need nipping in the bud instantly for me ,  and also the lack of a respectful "Hi , we're  _____________  , we've just moved in upstairs and we will be having a few friends around ....." gives a little clue to their characters IMO 
            Yeah , give it a few days , but no longer than a few days IMO  - there are some boundaries that need laying down sooner rather than later. 

    No, Not that Dr Z.  Please don't bother PM'ing me for 'Price Lists'  You have the wrong guy.

    The f-ing and blinding in earshot of my kids would have got an immediate response from me, at the time.

    In the first instance Id ask them, politely but firmly, not to shout and swear outside the flat. Then take it from there, see how they respond.

    yeah, i think it shows a blatant disregard for your neighbours to just turn up and start pumping 24 hour tunes out.
    a little "hi, we are new here, and were planning on having a bit of a housewarming party, do you mind?" goes a long way. the fact that they didnt bother probably shows that they dont think it is unfair to others and will most likely do it again.

    calm down, its life, mate, its only a game

    Haha at allowing them a 24 hour settle-in period.

    Comes around 1am last night, their party would have ended....

    I've been there so I understand your problem.  Do they own the property or are they renting?  If they are renting go to the landlord and express your concerns.  If they own the property I'd go and firmly/politely set the ground rules from the off.  If you let it go for any length of time, they will obviously assume you're a mug or that you can't hear the noise.  By leaving it for any length of time you will become obsessed with every noise you hear, by every one entering the building, pulling up outside etc as you'll be waiting for the next party.  You will also begin to harbour great resentment to the girls and it will make you extremely bitter as with every incident you will feel mugged off even more.  These things are best tackled head on, you'll probably find the girls are just excited by their new house and it will settle down, after you confront them they'll be embarrassed by their incosiderate actions if they have an ounce of decency in them.

    You should have said something when the noise didn't stop after midnight. They have just moved in and obviously show no respect for the people living below them, sorry but I can't see this improving.

    Little story:

    When I moved in my flat the first thing I noticed was there was a guy living downstairs who would play loud music till 10-11am (way too late in my books) He would also go around shouting "Bull****!!" every 30 minutes or so. I didn't bother talking to him, just called the landlord just said, go talk to him and see if he is reasonable.

    I left it a few days untill I had a bad day at work and wanted to get home and have a quiet evening. I could hear "The final countdown" vibrating through the floor and stormed down stairs. I was ready for a punch up, untill he opened the door (I've not seen him untill this point) and there was 6'3 250lbs man who had a beard.

    I could feel my penis slowly invert its self and I couldn't get a word out. "Umm, Umm, sorry, but Umm, could you turn your music down, its quite loud"

    Whilst his music was blaring in the background he replied;

    "What music? I'm not playing any music, clear off" And he waved his lunch box sized hand in my face.

    Right after this happened I slowly went back up the stairs with him glaring at me and called the landlord who then evicted him.
