What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? NJ
I live in apartment complex. Upon renting the apartment and signing a lease, it clearly stated that no window air conditioners allowed. I also signed separate policy paperwork where it says no window air conditioners allowed. I was also told that we can only install window fans but no air conditioners. Now every apartment has wall built in air conditioner that can cool off the apartment.
Several weeks ago everybody received note that now they allow window air conditioners. Since then my neighbors downstairs run window air conditioner all night long every single night. And because of poor construction, I can hear it as a helicopter every night(my floor even shakes) and I'm having trouble going to sleep. I spoke to neighbors, they don't care.
So I wrote a letter to administration regarding this issue, and that I signed lease where no window air conditioners allowed. I also asked them to make a rule not allowing window air conditioners after 11PM. They called me next day and said that I just signed generic lease, and it doesn't matter much what it says in it, but they promised to see if they can do anything. After several days I wrote another letter explaining the situation and asking them to meet in person. I never heard any reply on it.
What can I do in this situation? How can I legally fight it? So the lease that we sign, it doesn't mean anything?
