Withholding rent can get Lucy into trouble along with the noisemaker upstairs. The LL could get frustrated and decide that both tenants are troublemakers and Lucy could get hit with an eviction notice for non-payment and off to court she goes...who needs THAT headache?

The other suggestion about calling the LL (or, even better, WRITING a short polite note to LL sent certified) about the issue would probably be a better solution to the problem. That way, no one loses face or gets defensive and hopefully the noisemaker will be accomodating and lower the volume...and if not, Lucy has a record of her complaint to the LL on file so LL can't claim later LL "had no idea" or was "never told."

: go see the tenant while the music can be heard in your apt and have the tenant come into your apt to hear it, if that is not enough then have the Police come in and hear it and then the landlord. get the picture??? if you can hear it, then it's too loud PLAIN and SIMPLE.Hold your rent, if landlord is scared of it and let the Judge fix it.
