If it's so loud that you can hear from the next house, maybe you can call the police for a noise violation...? That's a thing, right?

I before E except after C, and when it sounds like A as in "neighbor" and "weigh," and weekends and holidays and all throughout May. But you'll always be wrong no matter what you say.

This @26... Or if you know any German, the German ie sounds like ee and the ei sounds like I. So Justin Bieber like bee-ber and not by-ber.

Definitely, 26. My last name is Teichman. Pronounced like "tie-sh-man." People are constantly saying tech-man and teek-man. It's german. It's a constant struggle.

The rule works fine as "I before E, except after C, when the sound you want is 'ee"." Shame no-one teaches that.

Or he could join the band and become the fiddle player.. Either way I think fiddling is a solid option

Or, instead of causing a lawsuit with his neighbor, he could go over, and calmly ask them to not practice so loudly or so late.

Yes, I'm pretty sure this should fall within noise pollution and OP has every right to call the police in this situation.

There are probably local noise ordinances that will help you. Try asking them nicely to please keep their rehearsals to a decent hour (or invest in some soundproofing). If they don't, go over again and tell them the next time it happens you will be calling the police. And then if it happens again make sure you follow through. If there's one thing I can't stand it's inconsiderate neighbors.

I hope OP is kidding about suing, he is not going to earn a damn thing. The previous owners are not obligated to tell about the neighbors. Why would they want to drive a potential buyer away on purpose?

It depends on the area. My dad worked with homebuyers/sellers and depending on the area there were different clauses in the contract that said things like this had to be disclosed. It was common in a lot of small towns, but not really in cities. I don't think suing is the way to go though. Deal with the people causing the noise.

Acually im studying this at the moment. Op can sue on the ground of "not disclosing material facts." the material fact being, the band

Reply

The fact the neighbor has a band is not a material fact about the house. They would never win this case unless their contract for the sale specifically promised quiet.

Actually, the sales contract doesnt have to specify it, it already includes anything outside normal boundries. So it would, in fact, include something like this. I would just call the cops though. Much easier and faster process.

Go over every night and start it off with "Hey! Heard y'all playing!".... Then give them multiple critiques and tell them "when I was your age" stories. They will eventually play very quietly if you are persistent.
