Can I Bring Legal Action Against Noisy Neighbors?  

If your neighbors are constantly being loud or excessively noisy, you may be able to file a legal claim against them. Of course, it is always best to try and work out your differences through a polite request or conversation. However, if your neighbors still do not understand your needs, you may be able to pursue the following types of legal claims:

Nuisance: Excessive or disturbing noises may result in a nuisance lawsuit. This is probably the most common type of legal action for noise disturbances. You might succeed on a nuisance claim if the noise continuously interferes with your ability to use or enjoy your own property.

Disturbing the Peace: Some jurisdictions place a limit on the decibel levels for sounds in any neighborhood. If your neighbors exceed the decibel level limit with their noise, they may be found guilty of disturbing the peace, which is a minor offense punishable by a fine.

Noise Ordinance Violations: Some jurisdictions may also enforce noise ordinances, which ban specific types of noise or music in a residential area. They may also ban loud noises at certain times of the day, for example during normal sleeping hours. Check to see if your city or municipality has such an ordinance, and whether your neighbor may be in violation.

As you can see there are a variety of legal avenues through which you may address disputes with a noisy neighbor. Part of the problem with noise in the neighborhood is that many people feel that it’s their own right to be as loud as they want to be in their homes or yards.

It is common for a neighbor not to respond to an initial complaint. So, if one legal option is not working, you may wish to try a different approach through the claims listed above.
