    Are you in an apartment? Move. Least hassle and expense.

      HOA are responsable for enforcing the rules of the HOA documents. There must be something in the ccr's about this.

      If they are not helping. In theory you can sue the HOA for not enforcing the rules. And you can sue your neighbor under the HOA rules. In practice, this is expensive, which is not worth it.

      Tell the HOA that they are responsable for enforcing these rules. You talked to the neighbor and they dont cooperate. Tell them it's part of their fiduciary duties to help resolve this problem.

      Ask the apartment leasing office. Tell them you will terminate the lease and not pay the breaking fee if they can't make them stop

      Each apartment has their own owner. My landlord doesn’t have power over the neighbor, right?

      You can take them to small claims court. But it is too much I guess

    Hire a tenant’s right attorney.
    Kept a log with documented incidents.
    Invite them to mediation.
    Sue them.
    Call the police 13 times.

    Did em all, guess which one worked?

    Sued my condo building board over a noise issue. Still ongoing. I own the condo so moving is not a realistic option and I will most likely win the case.

    Obviously it depends of how strong your case is and the particular laws/bylaws/rules of where you live. The only universal advice I can give you is to get a lawyer and sooner rather than later (seriously).
