is my neighbour permitted to do DIY drilling at 7:30pm in the evening?

i live in a low rise block of flats, a 3rd story building,i live on the second floor...the neighbour on the other side of my bedroom wall, is doing loud DIY drilling...i think he is someone shady because i hear him playing that awful rap music sometimes...anyway he is being really noisy by drilling the wall itself it sounds like......i feel like banging on the wall with a hammer....as i don't have much tolerance of people, i am quite unsociable and unsocial.

ive lived in this flat 15 years now and this is a relatively new neighbour, so im finding it hard putting up with his antics/behaviour.....i hate rap, i hate him and do not like the noisy drilling he is doing at this time of the evening.

i'm male in my 40s, what can i do?

    7:30 is not late dude. After 10pm and it would be an issue.

    7:30 pm is not late and he has ever right to use a drill at that time.  Your opinion of his musical taste has nothing to do with  it, neither does how long you have lived in you apartment.

    Maybe he is putting together IKEA furniture.?

    Most communities have a noise ordinance of 10pm to 8am, so although annoying it is permitted.

    in most communities, noise limitations do not begin until much later at night.  if you are a tenant [as "large block of flats" suggests], complain to the management company or letting agent.  They might just be interested in why the neighbour is drilling.  -- granddad

    Ask him when will his work be finished. If you get abuse complain to his landlord and/or the local authority.
