Therefore, our specialists got acquainted with the solutions of the Kyiv city for the sake of and in this article will tell you about your “rights to silence.”
We want to immediately make it clear that there are two concepts of noise from neighbors. The first is the noise that occurs in connection with a party with your neighbors, family showdowns, and the second is the noise during construction, from a hammer drill, etc.
Regarding the first type of noise, if your neighbors listen to loud music, arrange a party and after 22:00 have not stopped celebrating, and you can hear the noise very well, then for the first time we advise you to make a comment if this did not work on them, then you can safely call 102 (police) so that they come and explain how to behave, the police, in this case, have two options. The first option is to issue a verbal warning to violators, or immediately impose an administrative penalty in the form of a fine.
The second option for non-compliance with the rules of silence is associated with noise from construction work. In this case, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the decision of the Kiev City Council of December 25, 2008, which states that noisy robots in the city of Kiev can be performed from 8 to 19, and on holidays and weekends, noise from construction work is not allowed at all. In this case, if the builders of your neighbors do not comply with this condition, then you can also contact the police to resolve this situation. But we always advise you to make a remark first, and only then contact the law enforcement agencies, because it is very easy to make an enemy for yourself.
