I am on a kick today about noise issues. Why? I am surrounded by clients dealing with very real ones. Like a client who lives below a condo unit where some owner before the current one changed out the carpeting and padding for laminate floors.
The dispute is very real. The upstairs neighbors, whom I am told by their lawyer are “reasonable people”, instead of attempting to resolve the noise issue which has been ongoing by replacing the padding and carpeting would seemingly rather:
(1) decieve any new potential buyers by ignoring the fact that the noise transmission is an issue, or
(2) spend money on an attorney to threaten the victim of the noise for speaking out about it.
What do you think about that? I am interested to hear what reasonable people think. Have you ever been on either side? I take comments!
