I complained to the property manager at the complex, and other owners did as well. The parents were sent a letter asking them to control their children. The noise stopped temporarily but now it is back with a vengeance.
My question is what do I do next? What is the next step to ensure that these owners follow the "noise" rules? Can an attorney help me?

“Also, many associations have rules that require “quiet hours” or otherwise deal expressly with excessive noise. Many associations also have provisions on floor soundproofing (like carpeting), which might help with the kids’ jumping around.
“As with any possible violation of the condominium instruments or rules, you need to look at your association’s own rules to determine the way to formally make a complaint to the association on the issue. Many associations will not take any action unless the formal process is followed. That may mean filing a written complaint, and possibly making yourself available to attend a hearing on your complaint.
