    ive noticed that when the neighbors have got the music on nextdoor to me, i can hear everything! even when theyre just talking, i can hear it word for word.
    how could i try to make the wall a little more soundproof?
    i was thinking of getting the whole wall plasterboarded and skimmed, would that be a good idea?
    and/or is there any sort of environmental health problem with this sort of thing that i could chuck at my landlord?

    any help or advice would go down a treat

    :thumbsup:

    cheers

    Hiya chap, you could baton the wall and apply Rockwool slabs(I think!) then plasterboard and a skim of plaster. However as you're renting the place, I wouldn't do it, IMO it'd be a waste of your cash.
    Any chance of re-arranging wall units, cupboards etc? May be an idea to experiment first with a pair of heavy curtains or similar to gauge the effects of the dampening.
