    inconsiderate neighbors...what would you do in a case like this:

    a woman owns a building in a decent neighborhood. she has been there for over 20 years. a few years ago, a restaurant opens up right next door. the restaurant has a dance every friday night, sat night and sunday night til all hours in the morning. tues night is domino club night so noise goes on till about 2am. the women that owns the building understands that the restaurant gotta do what they gotta do to make their money. the problem is that because of the noise, the woman cant get her money because tenants are not willing to put up with the noise from the restaurant. what would you do if you are the woman that owns the building next to the restaurant?

    call the police, file a couple of complaints. find out the zoning restrictions for the restaurant as it relates to having a cabaret in a residential neighborhood. most likely, what the restaurant is doing is illegal anyway and once she talks to someone in the appropriate office, they'll have to discontinue it.

    should she try to talk to the people first or go straight to the authorities?

    she could try to talk to them but seriously, i doubt they are going to change their business practices just to appease her. if she files a noise complaint with the police, that will push the point more effectively.

    I believe a permit (or w/e) is needed to be able to keep business as such in operation after midnight. Unless they don't have one, there's really nothing she can do except speak with the business owner or have some tenants join her to discuss the matter, and hopefully that will resolve the problem. (If contacting 311 she can find out what complaints she can file within guidelines, if any.)

    If not, and they are operating past business hours, authorities can be called and action can be taken, then again it's not all that great to have bad blood when business is involved especially when it's right next to you.

    Hopefully they both can come to an agreement.

    1find out if they are within their right to do what they are doing

    if so
    sell the building and take your losses
    or deal with it



    if not

    try and fight them down

    but be warned you may make an enemy
    and arson is a hell of a thing

    The tenants need to pay their rent regardless. If they signed a Lease Agreement and it doesn't have any clauses pertaining to Noise then they need to pay up. It is not the Owner's fault about the noise. The Tenants themselves can file complaints about the neighbor.

    The woman should first do her homework. Is the restaurant licensed
    for entertainment? Does local zoning allow the current uses of the
    property? Is the liquor license in good standing and does it allow the
    type of activity presently occuring at the location? Is there a noise
    ordinance which is being violated?

    Usually local zoning laws are in place to protect people from such
    nuisances. There is probably a community law center that will
    provide pro bono representation so that the woman and her neighbors
    can get the relief that they seek. I have dealt with a similar issue
    before and highly recommend building a case by documenting everything.

    Keep a log of calls to the police, liquor board, etc. She might even want
    to call her City Coucilperson, especially if it is an election year. It is often
    very important to build a coalition of other residents willing to go on record
    as being opposed to the activity. Otherwise the restaurant will make her
    out to be a crank.
