Noisy tenants and their demon seeds
I think the saying "kids are noisy" is B.S. How much noise is two much? I live above a girl that has two kids that bang on the walls, bang on the closet doors and throw balls at peoples windows. I've been nice about it, but enough is enough. The mom is in the apartment and doesn't say a word to them, it just keeps on going. There are other kids in the building and they aren't doing the things these kids are. About two weeks ago I reached my breaking point. I went down and told the mom to read her lease that I and everyone in the building has the right of quite enjoyment, she laughed and said he dad was a lawyer and he would file against me. This sunday she left a note on my mail box telling me she was going to file a lawsuit against me and that her kids were allowed to make noise. I decided not to respond, I'm not going to deal with someone that thinks that she can suit people just for the hell of it. She also had one of her friends call me caliming to be with the county sheriff's office calling about a noise complaint that I had filed. Well I didn't file any complaint and If I did it would be with the town that I live in and not the county. I didn't think he was a cop so I called the county and found out there was no officer with that name on the force and that I should talk to my towns police because this is something they would have to deal with. So I did! I went in and the police officer listened to the voice mail and called the guy. The guy told him he was just doing a favor for a friend and was given bad information from his friend. My lease is up at the end of april 09 and I don't know how much more I can take and I've already talked to my landlord and he said he would take care of it, but they went right back to throwing the ball at the windows and banging on the walls, this time its louder. From were the live they can see if the landlord is pulling up and unfortunatly what is under them is the storage room. I've had people over and they've heard the noise too and can't understand why the mother isn't doing anything. Our apartments are less than 500 sqft so she's either the stupidest person in the world or she's allowing it to happen. Her kids swear at people and their only 8yrs old and 12 years old.
Today I wrote my landlord a letter with a copy of the letter she wrote me. Sometimes I work till 2am and get woken up to kids beating on the wall at 5am, thats when I called the landlord, 5am. Hey I figured if I have to hear it at 5am so will he. All of the other tenants in the building are nice their not rude and their kids don't make that kind of noise and when I do hear the other kids its nothing like the kids down stairs, it doesn't even come close. I pay my rent on time if not before, I'm not loud and I keep my place clean and i don't have three cats that spray, which "no pets" is on all of our leases. The girl below me decided after she moved in that she was going to pick up stray cats and keep them and she bought a bird that screams its head off from 5:30am till after midnight.
I know that a couple of the other tenants called about the bird and have told him about the kids. how much can a person take? My cup runnith over.
