Ray White Tuggeranong - fresh, fun & professional approach to real estate

bed room noise

By ACTResident - 10 February 2014 39

I’m not making it news, I just need people’s advice how to handle this situation. Due to the nature of this problem, if you want to make joke, please go away as I’m serious. If you offer help, much appreciated.

I’m living in a house, the next house’s window opens to our windows very closely. I saw a man and woman entering and leaving that house, not sure how many people living in, but there are no kids or old people. Last weekend in the evening, the noise from their bedroom was so loud that we can clearly hear from our living room while watching TV, a woman’s heavy breathing and moaning, lasting about 5 minutes then became deadly quiet. This is disgusting, polluting and damaging! This happened a few times before, but this time was very loud and clear maybe because we all open windows in the hot summer. I can not let it happen again as it really hurts us. Try to imagine while a family with old people and kids watching TV, and suddenly broadcasting porn.

I do respect people’s privacy but I am also entitled for a clean living environment. I need advice, which is legal, effective, and not hurting them. Probably a reminder, but who can send the reminder ?

thank you in advance.

What’s Your opinion?

Pop a note in the letterbox. And turn your television up.

Next time it happens, cheer them on or offer suggestions back at them out of your windows. Or try timing them and tell them that you could do much better than 5 mins. They might get the point and keep the noise down. Or you could just turn up your tv.

Lol, how precious are you??? Firstly it doesn’t sound like there is swearing or anything vulgar. Secondly, it’s 5 minutes you loser. If you want problems live in a place where they play booming music all night or something. Or people who practice some sort of 3 hour long tantric sex session. Jesus.

If you can’t stand some neighbourly noise, try buying a place that /isn’t/ right on top of someone else or that has sound insulation and AC so you don’t need the windows open.

FFS use your head.

Use of “disgusting”, “damaging” and “really hurts us” is pathetic. If you want to be the morality police, go and talk to them about it genius.

What about when the possums go at it? Does that upset you too?

Agree with curlylocks. state succinctly what they are doing (tactfully), how it affects your family, and ask them to change by closing the window prior, etc.

Remember, they probably don’t realise that they are causing this disturbance, and it it probably will be just as awkward when then find out that they are causing this disturbance.

Record it, dub in some farmyard noises, and add a porn movie theme tune.

Then play it back once to them at high volume.

Maybe knock on the door and ask if you can join in? Seems like you need to get some.

Alternatively, if the common sense police visit you, you could always close your windows for 5 mins and turn up the tv..

Oh no, the free service that I access no longer meets my expectation. I am outraged.
