What canI do to stop the noise that coming from the skate board store above me in the mall?

I have a business in the mall and above me there is a skate board store. They skate board in their store, jumping up and down. And it is making too much noise in our store. I contacted them, the mall manager, mall security but they could not do anything. Our customer sometimes bothered by the noise. Can I do anything legally to make them stop?

The first step you need to do in order to possibly resolve the noise issue that you have with an adjoining tenant is to carefully read your lease (assuming you have a written lease) in that its terms and conditions control the obligations owed to you by the landlord and vice versa in the absence of conflicting state law.

Look carefully to see if there are any noise restrictions as to you and presumably all other tenants in the mall. After reading this, you then need to speak with the landlord and the property manager about the problems that you are having with the noise to see if the other tenant can be made to stop the jumping in the shop or if not, some additional insulation be placed to assist in noise reduction.

Another option is to meet with the representative for the tenant with the skate board shop to try and reduce the noise voluntarily. If not successful, you should then consider consulting with a landlord tenant attorney about possibly bringing an action for an injunction against the skate board shop to stop the excessive noise.
