HELP-ceiling sounds like is cracking/rattling from upst neighbor
OK I've posted before asking if a neighbor has to fix a rattling or cracking ceiling as per an inspector request (I would hire an outside inspector to come listen to the noise). My neighbor has now told me she's not moving and instead her boyfriend (whose a worse stomper) is moving in.
I won't be able to deal with this anymore. My question is: Has anyone ever had it happen where your upstairs neighbor walks and your recess can lights sound like they're cracking?? It could also be the floor boards. It was always bad hearing them stomp but now it's plain out irritable hearing click, click, click, click. WHAT IS THIS?
Thing is, I don't know how to broach them about this (they are friends of my other friends). Also, if we're talking about floor boards being fixed-how BIG of a job is that?? Should I offer to pay like half for the 750 square foot soundproof padding??
Wonder how much this will all cost me?
What if they say no? Should I still get an inspector up there?
