renting and w questions on poor management

I moved to a reasonable affordable place in July and it has been quite a shocking experience so far.It is a complex with 400 units, gated and with security.

Before you read and say "move", please tell me if I have any rights to complain to nthe city for poor management or even to sue them for noise pollution and emotional stress

it is a Latino community and even though I am Latina, their style of life is completely far from mine.Kids play and make loud noise until 10 or 11 pm even during the week.When one person has a party it becomes a block party.Ine night trhey had a dj playing music in the street and with no permit.

Today they had a festivity and live music which was VERY loud.it went on for almost an hour.Security said they were not doing anything until 10 pm.that was at 7:40pm after I had out my baby in his crib and he wokpe up screaming from the noise.

I am a single mom, I work hard to keep the baby healthy and to keep the place clean and to be a good worker too so that I can provide for myself and the baby.Being bothered by loud music and a live party on a Sunday night was an emotional disturbance and physical to my baby.

I wrote to rhe manager but i was wondering if I have the right to do something more than that

Have you spoke with the city police? There are noise ordinances..even for during the day.

 With the 10pm quiet time , the police usually can not do anything about the noise.  All you can do is continually list your grievances to manager or actualy talk to the people throwing party about your baby trying to sleep.  I would move or teach everyone in our house how to sleep through the noise.  We have lived in our apartment since dd was born so she is used to all the residual noise you hear from neighbors.

Yes that has been my fear. I don't think I will get shot but I am concerned about my car.but do people really lose common sense? They all work.why do they have a party on a Sunday?

Its a way of life trust me. I lived like that most my childhood an yes you will get shot if they find out who is the rat. They dont just party, other things go on they dont need the cops around.

Sorry but no.  I asked my best friend (and lawyer) about issues like this.  When you sign a lease, you sign away your rights to sue pretty much.  "Noise pollution" and "emotional stress" would be impossible unless you get OJ Simpson's lawyer.  Sorry, I've been there, and renting sucks.

The cops are here quite often.i asked them once how dangerous the place was and they said it is much better than in the past and the only problems are alcohol and weed.

one day I was leaving the apartment and I saw the cops again and my two female neighbors were out and we were talking about the cops and the noise.they said things get worse around the holidays and with all the different virgin celebrations.i am from Chile and we don't celebrate the same festivities so I have no clue.

the place is full, full of children so it ccan't be that dangerous...just noisy
