Re: The ultimate Swiss neighbor

We have a 5cm thick carpet and a sound barrier panel underneath it where she sleeps to avoid noise. I am sure she is unable to hear anything coming from that room. Her problem is my door, which does make a lot of noise when opening or closing (reported to the landlord many times but he says noise is not a problem big enough to have it changed. My landlord is also hers).
You'd be surprised how even the smallest of noises can disturb people, especially if they're sensitised to it.

Anyway, if you think it's the front door that's at fault explain to the landlord that it's disturbing your neighbours and insist he does something about it!!!!

It's almost certainly not necessary to change it (assuming he means replacing the whole door), but is more likely a question of changing the hinges or perhaps the lock mechanism... depending on where the noise is coming from. It must be annoying for you and everyone in the building if it makes a lot of noise every time you open or close it.
