Harrassment

Hello,

I thought I would ask in this thread about a problem my wife and I are having with some apartment neighbors. I really dont want to take it to the next level, but we are running out of options, but we are moving in 6 weeks.

Story:

We live in an apartment, the people above us mid 50's were complaining about us constantly to the manager, every noise they would be waiting for the doors to open in the morning. I would get a call, knock, email from the office and I told them look nothing is going on, and I asked all of our neighbors and they never hear anything from us, even the ppl below us.

So the manager got sick of them crying wolf and told them nobody else is complaining there is nothing we can do, you can move if you want bla bla. Well they started going to corporate to get the staff fired. Then they just started calling the cops on us. Each time they say well I hear nothing, nothing to say. But they complained about the dog barking and the cop said if it continues you go to court and its a $1k fine. Well thats BS if there the only ones complaining.

Now I travel a lot and my wife is home alone a lot. Im not sure what
they might do and its getting rediculous. We are moving in 6 months, but Im just wondering what our options. I have much more pressing issues than dealing with this, but not sure what to do now.

Advice?

Thanks!

Obviously they don't like you, at all. I'd let my friend / family member watch the dog for a while (maybe a month) and see what they call the cops on you for the next time, eventually the cops would tell them to stop abusing their system or they will be the ones getting fined.

I am, we bought a house and we cant move till the end of Sept. We tried to do a short term somewhere else and it was just stupid what they wanted.

Also, our office asked if we could submit a letter to corporate about our experience so they can justify not re newing their lease.

It may be utterly futile, but the first thing I do when I have trouble with neighbors is go talk to those neighbors. If you decide to make sure that no matter what kind of temper tantrum or insults they throw out that you keep calm, cool, collected and courteous. Perhaps bring a witness just in case.

If it's going to end up being your word against theirs they have the advantage of having several complaints against you. I would then talk to my other neighbors and explain the situation just as you did to us. If you have all or many of them willing to speak on your behalf that will help immensely if this goes south.

Stick it out and hope for the best?

If you must, you must. You may want to call the police, not to file a report, but to ask what you can or should do in this situation. At least then it is on record that you have been actively trying to resolve the issue.

A rock and a hard place for sure... Bottom line, you live in an apartment, neighbors hear noise, never heard of a civil fine because of that. Let them complain and get worked up, and this is the last you will ever have to deal with an apartment.

Depends how much they dislike you haha

They'll either say good riddance, or how much can we mess with them before they go?

No we move in 6 weeks, we lost on a house we thought we had, and with my travel schedule and the housing market in CO we had to buy a new build, so were waiting on that. But its a pain in the ass to move to an apt for 2 months when we were looking. and yeah I am strssed about the wife here alone. They are older and its the wife who can barely get around nthat causes teh problems. Oh and they have a handicap sticker on their car but live on the 3rd floor too btw.

In the original post it said your moving at the end of sept. I would do my best to make as much noise as possible and tell them your moving out sept 1st. When you do move your stuff out do it at 3 AM.

If your older neighbors were complaining about you you would attack them with a garden hose?

Honestly since you said you can't really move for a bit I'd start documenting everything. Ask your other neighbors who aren't complaining and the staff for a short letter. That way if you do get in trouble with the cops you have backup/proof that they have filed false complaints before. Even get the report from the cops when they say you haven't done anything.
