I am a 15 year resident in a rent stabilized apt. in NYC. In Nov.98 a
woman moved in to the recently renovated apt. next to mine. She is extremely
noisy and is operating a business out of her apt. as well. I have tried
everything from a polite note to written complaints to the manager to
installing soundproofing, but I still am constantly awakened and by her,
and the manager defends her "right" to have a business, etc.
I guess my questions are - Is the landlord ultimately responsible for
"enforcing" peace and quiet in the bldg.? Can I apply for a rent reduction
since they do nothing about my complaints? What are my legal rights?
Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
