Effective Coverage offers Long Beach, CA Renters Insurance renters insurance, but we also understand that renters have other concerns that should be addressed as well. That’s why we publish apartment lifestyle information to help out renters. One common question that Long Beach, CA renters face is how to deal with uptight apartment neighbors. Maybe you just work an odd shift, and showering before work happens to be at 3 AM. Maybe the walls are just too thin. But one way or another, you’ve managed to annoy your neighbor. What now?
First things first: Even if your uptight neighbor is overtly harassing you about the perceived noise problem, do not attempt to record what they’re doing – to all appearances, recording in California is never legal unless all parties consent to it. Doing that would just cause more trouble. You can, however, keep detailed notes of incidents when you feel they’re harassing you about the real or imagined noise.
If the landlord mentions that the neighbor has complained about the noise, make sure to mention if that neighbor has been harassing you. They may be causing problems for other residents, as well. On the other hand, if it’s just a complaint, offer to demonstrate the noise that the neighbor complained about if it’s truly not offensive nor likely to interfere with quiet enjoyment. You could even offer to have him go to the neighbor’s apartment and then continue to make the noise that bothered the neighbor – that way they can see that a reasonable person wouldn’t complain.
Do check any clauses in your lease about running appliances after a certain hour. Dishwashers in particular are notorious for disturbing the entire building. It’s also helpful to give some thought to the way the type of noise you’re making might transmit through the building.
Dealing with an uptight apartment neighbor isn’t easy, but if you do it peacefully and calmly, you’ll find that if they truly are problematic, management already knows about it and you’re not the only one they’re harassing. Interestingly enough, your liability coverage on renters insurance in Long Beach could respond if she tried to sue you claiming she was injured because your noise disturbed her sleep.
