At the very least, is recording noisy Neighbours legal? So that means, the quick answer to "is it legal for you to record noisy neighbours?" is "yes", but, as is so often the case with the law, there are caveats and exceptions. It is highly recommended that you follow the advice of a mediation service before installing any recording equipment.
Then, what decibel is too loud for Neighbours?
After all, the law states that the acceptable sound level is 55dB during daytime (6am to 9pm) and 45dB during nighttime (9pm to 6am) in residential areas. But you surely cannot tell if your neighbour is above the limit just with your ears. Thankfully, you need not rely on your ears to measure the noise level.
What is unreasonable noise?
Noise that is unreasonable is: Loud noise after 11pm and before 7am. Loud music and other household noise at an inappropriate volume at any time.
