-Avoid being a noisy neighbor

Of course, is your house or apartment and you can listen to music, watch movies with a sophisticated sound system, make the parties you want or set up a ballroom in the middle of your room but, your neighbors are also entitled to rest at night, to have tranquility and an atmosphere of peace around them. When you think that you will disturb the order a bit, talk to them and let them know what you have planned to do before.
