please help - how do i deal with this neighbor?
For the past 4 years I have lived on a first floor apartment and so I know the common sounds a person above can make and yes sometimes it can be annoying but I see it as the price you pay for apartment living, right? Now I am on the other side, I am living on the second floor apartment with a real cranky lady underneith.
The other day we have received our first written noise complaint from the LL, which wouldn't be no big deal except for the fact that I don't really see how I could make any noice other than the general apartment noise.
So I called my LL and had asked if she knew a specific day that the neighbor was complaining about, cause that would help me figure out if it was just something out of the ordinary I did that day. The LL rudely told me that it's been going on for awhile and although she isn't taking sides she has to give me the notice because the lady below complained. I told her that I don't believe that I could possibly be making excessive noise, especially between the hours of 10pm and 7am because I am in bed by 10pm and don't get up till after 7am. (My life is very routine)
The LL again rudely claimed that if I wasn't making any noise then she wouldn't be getting a complaint. I don't reall buy that at all because I have never had a problem with this neighbor till the one day she was parked in my numbered spot and I politly asked her to move so I could pull my truck in.
Normally I wouldn't of even asked her to move, but our lot has poor lighting but our car ports have lights and since I have a nice stereo system in my truck and my alarm was on the fritz at the time I felt more comfortable being under the light of the carport. When I asked her to move she replied by asking if I was kidding, then asking me if my legs were broken that I couldn't walk, then proceded to slam the door in my face. She did move her car but hasn't talked to me since, now this complaint happens.
Sorry this is so long but I would really appreciate your feedback on this issue on how to deal with the neighbor and if there is anything I can do about dealing with the rude LL.
There is so much with this lady that is nuts but I've always been on the good side of it all except now...and I know for a fact that she is singling me out because I asked her to move.
