30 day written notice
Hi everyone, I'm new here and have a question. I've had it with my upstairs neighbors who pretend they don't know they are loud. I've written letters to them, called the police, called the apartment manager, banged on the ceiling and called the security company. There seems to be nothing we can do to stop the constant thumping coming from our ceiling. I have three fans going I cover my head and I can still hear them from above. What makes matters worse is that the sound seems to have gotten louder and my husband says he thinks they are now doing it on purpose because we complained. Well our lease is not up until the end of August but we don't want to live like this any longer. It's affecting our sleep and our health. We have an appointment to look at an apartment this week and if everything goes well we will be moving. In the meantime I want to give the management company a 30 day written notice this week. I want to tell them that since they cannot do anything about the noise that we will bite the bullet and break the lease. As much as I want to be nasty in my notice I decided it's not proper to do so. I just want this whole nightmare to end. What should I put in my notice? I've kept detailed notes of the noise and the time I've heard the noise. Do you think it's proper to put a copy of these notes in the notice? The management company moved us to this apartment because the last apartment was just as noisy. In their defense the people in that apartment lived on the top floor so I don't think they understood just how loud they were. They did tend to have loud parties which is the main reason we moved. All of this really is our fault because we found this apartment on-line and went off the reviews of some of our friends. My husband is in the military and got orders to move to Washington. The original complex we were to move into didn't work out because they "accidently" gave our apartment away. We had to find something quick and that is how we ended up in this dreaded place. We didn't hear anything bad so we gave it a try, big mistake.
