My mother and I live in an apartment complex. The walls are somewhat thin but most neighbors try not to disturb others. We shouldn't be able to hear foot steps unless someone is stomping. My mother and I live on the 12th floor. The neighbors I am complaining about is on the 13th floor right above us, they have to children. When we first moved in things were pretty quiet, then the banging started. It was in every room we happen to be in, it would stop when we moved to another. We thought it was just coincidence at first or the sound was just carrying or even construction. But it became increasingly clear, after 4 years, it was not. If I set up cameras around our home showing how the banging/knocking/dragging/stomping would stop and start, would that be enough proof to take them to court? If we win can we gain money? enough to move somewhere else?
I know this sounds a little crazy but live here for 4 years and you would understand.
We have tried calling the police, there would be a pause but it would start right back up again, louder.
The banging has reduced over the years. The constant following doesn't stop until we're sleeping. My mother and I have to take vacations just to get away. We do not know how they are doing it. We have tried everything within our budget but it continues. We are quiet people and we keep to ourselves, there is no reason why we should be targeted like this.
