How should I handle this situation with my neighbors?

So kinda kid related. I live in a duplex and the downstairs neighbors are young kids. It’s their first apartment and they have a young daughter. Anyways, since they’ve moved in, almost every weekend, they’ve had huge parties. Not a big deal and not my business. What is my business is them blasting a sub late at night and into the early morning. They’ve woken up my kids, my husband and myself several times. Weve tried to be understanding that they’re young and they’re excited to have their own space yatta yatta… we arent old hags. We are however now at the end of our ropes. They say they’ll turn it down but dont. From 11pm-3am my husband went down 4 separate times and asked nicely for them to please turn it down… they didnt do it. We couldnt even enjoy a movie together because it’s so loud and vibrates our whole apartment. I wouldn’t make a big deal about it if it wasnt a big deal and the waking the kids up is just a bit too much. So at 3am I went down and told them that I was notifying the landlord and if it keeps happening I’d call the police. One kid started throwing stuff and getting hostile and the girl that lives downstairs just kept arguing. I’m not arguing with a bunch of drunk, kids at 3am about them being disrespectful, rude and taking advantage of our kindness. Anyways, do you think we are doing the right thing? What would you do? Not to mention this is all during a quarantine order…

Def talk to your landlord first and then call the police. You deserve a space in your own home to enjoy. After all, you pay to live there too

I think you handled yourself well! You guys have asked multiple times. At that point I would talk to the landlord and like you said, if it keeps happening then call the police. If it’s bothering your family it is probably bothering others as well. Sorry you’re going through this!

Call the police, non emergency number though otherwise police will get mad. File noise complaints for all noise after 11pm.

I’d have called the police and filed a report already. Then I’d show the landlord said police report.

You’ve literally alrdy tried to be nice, now I could start calling the non emergency line everytime they’re in noise violation (whatever ur city’s hrs are. It’s usually like 11p-6/7a.) I’m not a cop caller but you’ve done everything you can possibly do to be nice! You live there too and you pay bills. You deserve respect as well. Oh and at my Apts, my office gets shit done. I wouldn’t even need to call the popo my apt manager is on that shit she’d give them 3 warnings and an eviction all in 1 wk. She’s big on respect lol

Tell the landlord. There is Noise ordinance laws are local laws that prohibit undue noise made by area residents. These laws generally go into effect at specified times during the day and night, such as 10:00 pm – 7:00 am on weekdays and 11:00 pm – 8:00 am on weekends. Your landlord should act on this. Call the cops, if they still aren’t abiding. Technically this can turn into a lawsuit. And they can be evicted. I had the same shitty kind of inconsiderate nxt door people, who lived above me.
