My neighbor is harrassing me wiht noise complaints
I live in a 2nd floor. apt. I have twin baby boys.¬† They’re one yr. old and a 4 yr. old boy.¬† My twins are not walking yet so they crawl around to get around the apartment.¬† I got a noise complaints from my downstairs neighbor that to much noise is coming from my apartment . In fact when¬† it’s just my kids crawling or just my husband and I walking, he would bang on our floor very loudly.¬† This has happened either early in the morning or early in the evening.¬† He complained to the building manager that we are creating noise pollution and even he called the cops at our apartment twice.¬† When the cops arrived at my apartment, they did not find any violation of rules and realized that its just my kids are crawling.
He lied to the building members¬† that I let my kids run around as late as 1 o’ clock in the morning and even told my husband over phone that I¬† dont take care of my kids because of watching TV at day time.¬† I know this because I was on the other line listening to the conversation.¬† At one point through this phone conversation. In the middle of conversation my husband asked him whether he is able to listen the same noise at that moment or not and I got surprised¬† he said yes.¬† I wanted to mention here that at the same time my children were sleeping .¬† He lied so much on his complaints, and now I just received a summons to go to court because he filed a complain through the court.
I’d like to know what my rights are how to protect me and my family and what to expect when I go to court.¬† This is the first time this has happened to me and I can’t do anything to make my children go for noise reduction and¬† living in the apartment.¬† The landlord offered him to move to the 5th floor and he refused.¬† He has been a harasser since the day I moved to this apartment.¬† He came up on the day after I moved here and threaten me to have me evicted if I make too much noise.
I’m moving out in a month, but I just want him to leave us alone until I’m ready to leave.¬† Please help and let me know what do you recommend to do.
