How can I keep another Tenant form bullying and harassing my Landlord into
My upstairs neighbor has continuously complained to my Landlord about
anything and everything she can think of since I moved in five years ago.
[brief example of complaints and or demands by upstairs neighbor]
1. Do not make noise in the backyard communal area between the
time of 2pm and 5pm (she is taking a nap)
2. No smoking outside in the backyard area as it drifts up into her window.
(yet she is a smoker herself)
3. She has threaten to have my pets physically removed from my apartment
by aminal control under court order due to excessive noise.
(The Landlord has stated herself that she believes my pets do not bark
excessively nor do the other occupants who are also dog owners.)
FYI. The loudest pet in the building is owned by a relative of the Landlord
who rents an apartment next to mine.
...and so on.
The upstairs neighbor has also complained about other tenants behavior
but I'm generally her main focus.
Our building is small, ( eight units total ) I have a good relashionship with the
other occupants and my Landlord.
I have asked the other tenants in the building if They have a problem with me
or if they have contacted the Landlord in the pass with any complaints toward myself.
They all answered... no, everything is fine.
I have asked the other tenants if they would participate in a tenats group
to help find amicable solution to any all grievances between tenants and or
They all agreed except the one tenant with the never ending list of complaints
My Landlord has complained to me that my upstairs neighbor has threatened
her and her building with law suites and that she will withhold payment of rent
if her demands are not met.
My Landlord seems to be buckling under her pressure stating she just wants
my upstairs neighbor to leave her alone and to go away.
I have been planning to move soon anyway so I don't want to engage in some big ordeal,
I would like to have her stop creating a hostile living environment within our building while I'm still here.
I will be speaking with a renters rights orgainazation and also a lawyer soon
for more advice.
What else can I and the other tenants do to stop what seems like a vendetta
against us all.
Thank you for your time.
