Re: Neighbour complained about noise to landlord

UPDATE for those curious: Itís been around a month since they first sent me the noise complaint letter.

In that time, Iíve sent them a registered letter explaining how Iíve spoken to all my neighbours on my floor level and they donít hear any noise coming from my flat. I specifically wrote all the names of the neighbours and their contact details in my response letter (the neighbours all offered to personally vouch for me). Iíve asked the rental agency for further instructions and offered for them to pass my cellphone number to anyone who who hears ďimmense noiseĒ.

In the same letter, I also very kindly pointed out some things that they offered to fix in the autumn and still havenít (paper trail dating back to early September, and another reminder I sent in November and December which went ignored). Some of the things are quite serious - one of the heating batteries doesnít work in a room, which makes it very cold in the winter time.

They got around to finally responding to me this week but they completely ignored anything to do with the noise complaint. They only responded with a few sentences by asking to resend them the documents about the issues they promised to fix (paperwork they already have).

At this point Iím quite frustrated with the rental agency.
I would send them an email regarding only the noise complaint (as once stated in a post before).

IĎve re-solved mine in the meantime and now live in absolute peace .

Otherwise a registered letter regarding all the issues in a new building will be filed along with Ąall guarantee work to be carried out in the next 10 yearsď. Talking from experience.

Only the noise complaint is probably within the terms of your rental contract, and that needs to be addressed. Immediately. No registered letter required as a first step.

Thanks for the suggestion. Already done actually. I responded via a separate email thread after sending registered mail specifically inquiring for a response about the noise situation.
