: You certainly do have rights. As I understand it, the rights specifically pertain to restriction of noise before and after certain hours and above and beyond that, what is "reasonable" and "unreasonable". I think, but am not sure, that the landlord can enforce a tenant to carpet their apartment up to 80%, but you should check on this. If you can't find it through tenant net, you might want to call the Metropolitan Council On Housing and ask their advice. If you have spoken to your neighbor, the next step would be the super and/or landlord. But yes, you do have rights.

Met Council? Oh phooey. Some leases require tenants to carpet their units, but that's a lease requirement, not a law. Noise laws are not based on specific hours of the day, but more on what is reasonable.
