I was wondering if I could get an opinion maybe from other tenants or landlords.
I'm living with my boyfriend in a small building that's just 3 apartments on top of each other, us being on the top floor. The issue is, the guy living below us makes ungodly noise around 3am every night. This is actually disturbing our sleep now every single night nearly, and I get up for work at 5am then so I don't really get back to sleep much.
We've lived there for about 18 months, and even though the guy has been living there before us, this has only become an issue in the last 6 months or so.
The neighbour on the bottom floor has said his sleep is being disturbed too.
My question is: what are my options? Do we go straight to the landlord or do we try and confront the neighbour first?
I've never seen him leave his apartment and he always seems to be at home so I'm assuming he doesn't work, or works from home...it's a bit strange having shared a front door for that long to have never met, so I'm assuming social confrontation wouldn't go so well.
Next question is, can the landlord actually do anything about this? Or are we just destined to never have a peaceful sleep again?
