I live on the 6th floor of a rent stabilized walk-up. The LL is replacing the roof, but it is driving me crazy because the noise is unbearably loud, the apartment shakes, and it has caused a number of leaks. My roommate could not stand the noise, and moved out. This has been going on for 6 months. I have withheld rent, and we are going to court, but the only thing I seem to have to protect me is the warranty of habitibility. They have a building permit and start work at 7 am. Two of my neighbors are in the same position.
Please advise me of anything I can do, or if there is some type of limit on the noise they can make.
