Does anyone have a noise letter they have used that got results? In one ear and out the other is usually what happens.

I had a complaint from the best tenant in the building about a new tenant. 6am doors slamming, yelling and swearing.

I need something firm but not threatning.

Please help. I dont want to loose my good tenant.

Thank you --69.130.xx.xxx

Give the loud tenant verbal notice in person to quiet down and let them know that if there is another complaint, they will be asked to leave. --66.33.xxx.xxx

Remind the tenant that your town has laws restricting noise after 10PM and before 8PM and that you will be reporting any disturbance to the police.

Be there at 6AM to hear it so that your good tenant doesn't have trouble with the new tenant seeking revenge. --76.99.xxx.xx

This should between the two tenants. In issuing this letter you are going on hear say. Since you didn't hear this for yourself.

I understand not wanting to lose your good tenant. So follow the advice above. My noise letter would not help you. As it tells tenants to contact the police.

After 2 police reports I will give a 3 day to cure or quit. Next police report they get a termination notice.

Anyone ever gotten a tenant to quite down by asking, letter, or any other means other then goodbuy? --76.248.x.xxx

I agree with Josh [CA]. Have the good tenant call the police when there is more noise and file a complaint and get a copy of the police report. After the first one, give them a warning (in person, in writing or both) and when another police report is filed, give them a notice to quit, followed by an eviction notice if they don't comply (based on AK laws). --158.145.xxx.xx

Yes Dejay I have. The police knocking at their door telling them that they were called because of the disturbance and have heard the noise for themselves really sends a shock wave threw most tenants.

A police visit sure does carry more punch then a Landlord letter or a fellow tenant complaint.

If a police visit doesn't phase them. IMO they are trouble looking for a place to happen. That trouble will be happening at your property soon. So get ready.

In CA the police like to cart usually the male but sometimes the female for domestic violence if any member of the dwelling shows signs of being punched. Particularly in the face or head.

They don't hesitate. At least in long beach. They don't use the domestic disagreement excuse to not do anything. Charges don't have to filed by the injured party even.

They see a fresh punched face or head and the one with the beat up knuckles gets cuffed and taken to jail. Long Beach Cops don't mess around when it comes to this.

The first complaint of noise I plaster notices on the doors of all the units in the building including the door of the person who complained. This is a general letter and is not tenant specific and gets placed in no one's file.

Letter One:

Dear Residents,

It has been brought to my attention that there is an unacceptable amount of noise coming from your building between the hours of _____ and _____.

Per your lease agreement, quiet hours are in effect from 10 p.m. until 7 a.m. During these hours you should use televisions and stereos at a volume level as to not disturb your neighbors, refrain from boisterous indoor and outdoor activity which may disturb your neighbors, and limit conversation in your home to use your "inside voice." Even during times which are outside of the quiet hours observance, please be courteous and respectful to your neighbors.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at _________________.

If at this point the offending tenant still does not be quiet, I have a second letter which I place on the door of the offending tenant only.

Letter Two:

Dear ____________________,

Recently I notified all residents of your building that there was an unacceptable level of noise and/or disturbance coming from your building. After further investigation, it has been discovered that the offending noise is coming from your home.

Per the lease agreement and my original notice, please be advised quiet hours are in effect from 10 p.m. until 7 a.m. During these hours you should use televisions and stereos at a volume level as to not disturb your neighbors, refrain from boisterous indoor and outdoor activity which may disturb your neighbors, and limit conversation in your home to use your "inside voice." Even during times which are outside of the quiet hours observance, please be courteous and respectful to your neighbors.

Further violations of this policy will not be tolerated. From this date forward, your neighbors have been advised to contact the _____________________ Police Department with any and all noise complaints. If a noise complaint report is filed, this could lead to action up to and including eviction from your home.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at _____________________.

After letter 2 is sent out, I then act armed only with a police report. If tenants continue to complain about the offending noise but do not contact the police, I consider the matter dropped. --99.4.xxx.xxx

I've only had the issue one time at the four-flat. Single guy had a party and kept the upstairs neighbor up all night. I called him and told him that should it happen again I'd advised the other tenants (I did not tell him who complained) to call the police and that I would then get a copy of the police report and have to proceed with eviction. It only happened once. He is still there and the upstairs neighbor is gone (about 2 years after the complaint). --199.67.xxx.xxx
