I think this complex is reasonably soundproofed. Heck, once there were cops called on a domestic disturbance one floor below us and we didn't even know anything was going on until I took Miles out and saw the cop cars in the parking lot with their flashing lights on. On my way back up the stairs I did hear some screaming, but in the apartment, we heard nothing (and I'm glad I didn't, angry people trigger a total PTSD reaction because of my childhood, complete with shaking, sweating and complete terror)! I think those neighbors moved out a few months ago, which is good, because I think they were the same neighbors who had the cops called on them twice for getting in horrible fights in the parking lot. But I'm not expecting these children to be completely silent, I'd just like a little less THUMP now and then. We only talked to them once when my roommate first got her night shift job. We think the people who lived here before us may have complained a lot, because when we first moved in and my roommate met the upstairs neighbors one of the first things they told her was to please talk to them if they were too loud and please not call the office! We haven't really had the need to call the office about any noise complaints or anything though.
