Isolation is the big brother, you will need to specify. Doesn't have to be in dBs or STC. But we do need to know can you hear footfall above when you are in the studio. That might be enough to stamp NG on the whole project. Isolation is seriously hard to do.

Is the basement at ground level or below? You might get really lucky thermally.

Football definitely!! How else can I specify without STC or DBs hmmmm.... when someone walks up there I don't hear anything but when my kids bang stuff on the floor I do. The floor is made of these bricks with a layer of concrete poured on top. Pretty standard around these parts.
