    To be fair, the questions were selected in the sense that the questioners were selected. A woman In the section across from me could not get recognized, even when she stood up.

Too Many People In One Unit?

Does anyone know if there's anything we can do when there are 8+ people living in a 2 bedroom apt?

Does anyone know if there's anything we can do when there are 8+ people living in a 2 bedroom apt? When we moved in 7 yrs ago, our landlord told us, upon asking, that there were only 2 adults & 2 children living in the unit below us (it's a 2 unit 2 flat). As the yrs have gone by, more people have moved in. In addition, the people moving in are having children. We are 2 adults in our apartment, & strive for a peaceful & clean home environment. Yet, as it stands, there are 5 adults now & 4 kids below us, that we know of. We never have any water pressure, let alone hot water, because there are that many people bathing & washing dishes all day, not to mention the times when the kids are just playing with their water, turning it on & off, on & off. The noise level is thru the roof because no one is ever tending to the children. We know this because the kids have been carving their names into the walls in the common areas, running from one end of the unit to the other, & throwing their candy wrappers and trash out their bedroom window (saw them doing it) into the yard that only we take care of, that only we spend money and extensive time on each year. I've knocked on their door when the noise was unbearable so we could discuss things like adults, but they refuse to answer their door. They won't ever say "hi" or "how are you?" or even "go to hell". According to our exterminator, their unit is chock full of stuff. As he put it, we "better hope there's never a fire because their place is going up like a tinder box with all the junk they have in every room, from floor to ceiling". I've reported all this to our landlord countless times, & I really mean at least 10 times I've complained, but as long as they pay their rent, he doesn't care what they do. I don't want to sound witchy, or like I'm nosy about my neighbors, but this affects our daily life. I really don't want to have to move, & I'm not in the business of getting people kicked out, but it's just become too much.

    They probably moved by now.

  • I believe she did. From the looks of her tagline she moved to the Dunning neighborhood. From a renters perspective, the area is a step up.
