Although I am a condo owner, not a tenant, we found that we can hear EVERYTHING from the two apartments above ours. This includes their television, stereo, conversations (when they are in one part of their apartment),,. They have wood floors on most of the floor above our apartment with a single area rug. Our condo regulations state that at least 75% of the apartment must be carpeted, but with the area rug it is possible they meet that minimum. However, the area rug doesn't do much to muffle the sound from their giant TV or anything else, and they move it out of the way to vacuum, often disturbing my baby son during his morning nap. Do I have any recourse at all or are we stuck? I am really at the end of my rope.
: Thanks very much for any advice.
I have some really serious advice to anyone buying any property, as a prospective owner, you have the right to inspect the premisis Before you buy, if the condo was empty why didnt you tell the real estate agent or condo board, I want to be in the apt to check out the noise, at night before I sign a commitment to buy, or at the least if it is empty at the closing, THAT NIGHT you take a sleeping back and stay there, if it was as noisy as you say, you do have 3 days to back out of the deal, Just a thought on your next purchase of a home
