: You can't compare situations, nor can noise be completely muffled. Here,
: according to the tenant's reporting the landlord, they "walk to hard or
: that when we pull out our dining room chairs to eat it sounds as though
: we are dragging an elephant or that we are dropping things constantly
: and disturbing him". First, it makes no difference if it's a landlord
: (as is here) or another tenant on the receiving end. Some people do
: walk too hard and don't realize how much noise they're creating, even if
: it's not intentional. Each situation is different, but I've seen plenty
: situations where such noise is beyond what is acceptable. Judging what
: is excessive noise is subjective and can't be done here, but assuming
: they are making noise sufficient to be irritating, then it should be the
: one making the noise who should take some steps to quiet the situation.
: Getting a carpet is just one solution.

: Most leases I've seen require tenants to have carpets over 80-90% of the
: floor surface, so unless it's stabilized and the tenant can show carpeting
: is a required service (where in such cases it would be the owner's responsibility),
: then the tenant should simply get a carpet.

I'm in a situation similar to the one in the original post. Is there a law requiring tenants to have carpeting over 80-90% of their floors, or is it just written in on the leases?
