: 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

Good advice. I will remember this when we purchase next. In the meantime, if anyone knows whether we have any recourse to deal with noise, I would like to know about it. Also, we plan to move in a couple of years and rent the apartment out. If we tell the prospective tenants up front about the noise problem, then we shouldn't have problems down the road with upset tenants and broken leases, right?
