Dealing with the Rap music upstairs..HELP!!

Posted by Allisya on August 10, 2000 at 17:34:40:


We recently moved into an apartment. I have never had an apartment where there was a tenant above me. There is also a tenant on each side wich is separated by a fire wall. I hear nothing from those tenants. My upstairs neighbor however comes home every day at 5 am and turns on Eminem so loud my house shakes. I might also add that his windows are open and I can't allow my 4 year old to play in her sand box between the F this and B that words. This would not be so bad except for the fact that he is a maintenance man for the apartment complex. We also share a garage and basement area with the upstairs tenants. (Washer and dryers and storage are down there) . What can I do??? I really do not want a confrontation with someone who could easily damage by vehichle or get a key to my apartment at will. I am a stay at home mother of 2 small children and I do not want to make waves or put my children in danger over this. His wife/girlfired (I am not sure which) is also home during the day and occasionally "cranks it" loudly. Today I was at my wits end and cranked my stereo for about 3 or 4 minutes just to see if they would get the message. They didn't. What can I do short of moving out? My lease is not up until next MAY and there is a clause in there that they may try and collect the whole lease if I try and move out. Any ideas???

Thanks in Advance
