Customer Question
This is a large 600...
This is a large 600 unit complex with many college age tenants that like to party drunkenly until 2 to 3 AM during the week and weekends. I get up for work at 6:00AM. I currently sleep deprived. I've talked to the landlord and there is a guard on duty in the evenings but I can't get the noise to stop. I love my apt. and I don't want to move but I've lost my right to quiet enjoyment. What recourse do I have. I live in Los Angeles, Ca

You may need to file suit against the landlord for breaching the covenant of quiet enjoyment. You can show that due to the landlord's inaction you cannot make full use of your apartment. You will need to obtain some noise measurement device so you can establish that the noise is excessive, and the time the noise is occurring.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
