    You have my sympathy. Our previous neighbours were similar - there used to be music paying at all hours of the day and night. It was so bad that during the day cars would pull up to locate the source of the noise. The one member of the family was a drug dealer and we had a couple of dawn raids in the time we were there. Another member of the family was an alchoholic - he was found dead in the woods behind the house in the weeks before we moved out.
    We did manage to stop the noise though before we found out about their "habits", not sure it's a method I'd have tried if I'd have known... We were just REALLY nice to them. To begin with they were really embarassed when they saw us, and then they started apologising, and in the space of about 3 weeks, the noise was pretty much gone. May have been more luck than judgement though
    We've moved now though - have heard from other people we've kept in touch with from the area that they've gone through a "noise-relapse".

    I know it's tempting, but if your neighbour is the complete *&!^ he seems, then this really won't help - if they complain to the council about your noise (or other neighbours complain about you) then it really won't get better.

    Plus if they do send someone from the council whilst your at work and they turn there music off and yours is playing whilst your at work , well you get the picture....

    I feel your pain

    I haven't had anything quite as bad as this but my neighbours above have wooden floors and I more or less hear every footstep, thankfully though they go to bed by 11 every night like ourselves.

    Funny thing is they came down to us for a chat one month because they heard our talkradio in the morning on the weekends, we mutually agreed to keep our volumes down as I informed him about the footsteps and the absurd bass on his TV sound system. Oh btw we have no sound system and no tv- all the sound is coming from a iMac with no external speakers and the volume is never at full [I did tell him of this and we agreed that we need sound insulation, I rent downstairs and he owns upstairs].

    The house was converted to two parts before the sound insulation regulations came in. I'd much prefer to move but in general it is a pleasant and nice neighbourhood. Apparently they are trying to sell upstairs so god knows what we'll get

    We've got a nice equilibrium at the moment. My story is over, all the advice given here is exactly what I've read elsewhere in the past and is sound.

    Fingers crossed for you!

    I long to live in a place where noones noise impacts on anyone elses. I seriously envy countries like Canada and US where there is so much more space and houses dont have to be crammed with poor insulation. Could finally use my 500watt sub for the TV then its lying dormant currently
