so you know how you get a new tenant and you think, oh he looks like a nice kid. well, at 10:00 PM when he starts drumming you are not thinking that anymore.

That's why when you interview a new tenant, you let them know what your expectations are with a tenant as well as ask what their habits are, beforehand, and put it in writing if you decide to rent to that person.

I live in a quiet area, I am quiet and I like it quiet. I ask if they like to play music or the TV loud or have any noisy habits. If they do, my rental is not suitable. I'd rather not have the apt. rented than to rent it to someone that is going to drive me insane. Life's too short and no amount of money is worth it.

It is incredibly insensitive and disrespectful of your tenant to be drumming away at 10 PM. You need to have a chat with him.
Guess you didn't notice the drum set when he was moving in!

Good luck!

they are not our tenant. he lives below us. if he does it again....i will let him know about consideration and then inform landlord.

thank you-i needed to vent. i am sure the lease has that in it as well.

He'll do it again so best to sort it out before you endure further late night drumming.

My neighbors and I had an issue with a tenant in an adjacent home blaring LOUD TV late at night. I spoke to his landlords nicely asking if they could PLEASE get him to turn it down. Turns out the tenant has a hearing problem but everything worked out just fine and, without any rancor, all soon was peaceful again. Maybe he bought some wireless headphones!

If the kid is approachable then by all means approach him about it but otherwise let his LL deal with it. He probably has no clue how sound carries, particularly at night.

well, the tenant was ( thank god ) only a month long term for winter break from the college.

the things he would scream in the middle of the night and then him and his friends would yell curse words after. hubby is a light sleeper so bore the brunt of all this. i only heard it a few times. but he would make these weird animal screams and then yell F___ multiple times. i get that he is young but geeze where did peoples common courtesy go. no consideration at all for others.

i will say that when he would played his drums, guitars or music, when i banged on the roof he would stop and apologize.

he has a lot of growing up to do and i hope he never comes back. and i am so thankful that he has left.

i only hope we get some nice quiet normal tenants next time who are older than 30 and dont have drinking problems like the last few batches. one threatened to burn his girlfriend up in the apartment .

Oh no! That is awful! Just curious, how big is the space above you and how much does it rent for?

there are 2 units below us, both two bedroom. one with a yard and the other not. they are not huge but they are nice. the one with the yard is nicer as it has 2 more windows and of course the garden area.

pam @ coldwell banker can help you with price info. and the apartments are in town

You live above him. ABOVE him.

Ask him nicely to stop.

If he does not, start your day with some 6am cardio. Dribbling a basketball/jumping rope for 30 minutes in a spot which just happens to be above his bedroom may resolve the matter.

he was only here for a month, where we live and how the building is, sound carries. the problem child has moved.

weed whacking at 6.30,when we first moved in here 9-10 years ago, our now deceased downstairs neighbors did that , right below our window.
