Renting an apartment and want to know more about quiet times?

What time(s) should you be quiet in an apartment?

Let’s take a look!

Apartment Quiet Time Guidelines

Typically, quiet time(s) in apartments are expected from 10 pm to 8am on weekdays and 11pm to 9 am on weekends.

This may vary depending on local ordinances, so it’s always best to check your local ordinances as well as your lease.

If you’re in doubt, always check with your leasing agent or building manager.

Rules aside, it is important that you are considerate towards your neighbors and avoid excessively loud noises at any point.

Common Noise Complaints

It’s important to know the most common noise complaints, so you can avoid them.

  • Loud music (especially with base)
  • Loud TV and television shows
  • Barking dogs
  • Loud parties

Unfortunately, the walls in many apartment complexes are quite “thin” (lack soundproofing) so you may underestimate how loud you really are.

In many cases, issues can be resolved amicably through proper communication.

Check the Rules Beforehand

Does your apartment complex have a quiet time clause written into the contract? Are there local noise ordinance laws?

Know the rules ahead of time so you are more prepared and likely avoid unnecessary confrontations with your neighbors and the authorities.

While you cannot necessarily predict how your neighbor will perceive the noise from your apartment, you can take a few steps to ensure an amicable relationship with people who live next to you by being aware of the rules beforehand – allowing all residents to have a better living experience.

Also, make sure you move into an apartment complex with sound-control measures (if you can).
