: Is it right for the management to tell another tenant that I'm the one who called on them for being too loud with their stereo? They just moved in about 3 weeks ago and they constantly have their stereo playing too loud. It's so loud it vibrates our feet because they live right under us. We've already called the office on them several times and they just got a 7-day notice saying if they do it again they will need to move out. But one of the tenants down there came up and asked if we were the ones that called on them. We said yes and they told us that someone in the office told them it was us. I believe the office did tell them because they told us something only the office would know. It was about when we called and what we said. As far as I know, It is supposed to be confidential. If otherwise please let me know. I just don't think it was right.

: Thank You.

I have had the same problem in the past. I'm not sure about the confidentiality issue, but I think they should keep it confident initially. I know that if management gets to the point of taking court action to evict them for being a nuisance that you'd probably have to be a witness, since you are the complainant. I personally put my neighbors on notice that their music was disturbing me, so if they decide to blast their music again, they are aware that it bothers me and I will assume they are doing it intentionally. At that point, I would initiate action through management. However,It's only fair to let the neighbors know that it disturbs you before complaining to management. However, some people are ignorant and don't really care and will continue to be a nuisance.
