Help! Am I a Noisy Neighbor?
I just moved in to an apartment loft in downtown San Diego. The floors are wood tile and I have a treadmill. I use the treadmill for 30 minutes everyday between the hours of 5pm to 7pm. My neighbor below me states that it does not bother her at all and that it is just the normal noise that people in apartments deal with but that she doesn't really hear anything. I checked with her after my neighbor next to me complained that it makes the floor shake and so therefore I either stop or move out. He stated that I am just a renter and he owns so he has more rights than I and that he will contact the owner of my place if I continue to use my treadmill. I moved it over and I also purchased a floor mat but he is still stating it bothers him and I have to stop. That is the only time I shake the floor and I try to do it at an appropriate hour. There is nothing in my lease that states I cannot own a treadmill. Do I have to move and am I breaking any laws or ordinances? I appreciate any feedback. I have only been there for 5 days and would hate to have to move out. The guy is home all day long. He states that is his only time to watch TV and I ruin it for him. I work all day from 7am to 4/5ish and just want to be able to have 30 minutes after work to run. Help!!
