In my view the only way of resolving this matter is if you approach the court for an interdict forcing them to either remove the dogs or see to it that they do not make this noise. It is clear that this is continueing as per the previous tenants and the only way toi stop this is if you get a court order. Clearly nothing else helps. The only other option is to move and you already expressed the view that you do not want to do so.
You need to make a decision and get a lawyers letter out to these people. If they do not resolve this within 7 days then you will have to take the necessary action.
Unfortunately this can be a costly affair and you will have to brace yourself for legal costs. If you are successful in the case then you will be able to recover some of the costs from them.
Please ask more if not clear.
Thank you very much, we also thought that the only way would be to take legal action. We have been able to arrange a meeting on Tuesday between all of us ( including the rental agency).
Hopefully if we threaten with legal action they will start taking this matter and us seriously.
Have a lovely day!
