I don't understand why you come across those few people who insist on leaving their front door open when they smoke or cook or watch that surround sound movie. I find this extremely rude and am currently in constant argument with the neighbor that lives closest to me.
Every sound and smell filters into my apt and I feel like I live with them! I've asked them politely, written polite letters and they've only proceeded to be louder. Management is dismissing my concerns. What rights do I have?! If they would only politely close their door and not expose me to their lifestyle. I don't have any peace and quiet in my apt when I'm home. My only relief is to leave, which I feel violates my right to peace.
I am moving out at the end of next month, but what can I do in the meantime?
