I live in a condo in ct and have an upstairs neighbor that allows their 70 lb dog to run around the bedroom & apartment anywhere from 11:00 PM to 6:00 AM. It is very loud, old condo wood floors. Asked neighbor who is a tenant to please stop noise - nothing. Called police who said it was an association issue. Sent detailed log of noise to association. They said they said landlord would speak to tenant & noise abated a few days. Than noise started over & emailed management company several more times. Management company finally responded & said it was a neighbor to neighbor issue. Bylaws are vague, they state that no undue noise shall be allowed. Any advice?
I am only licensed in CA but you should have a local noise ordinance that prohibits noise in the middle of the night. A nuisance lawsuit could be considered as a last resort but is an option.
