I have a dispute with my downstairs neighbour.
They have been complaining about noises like footsteps, dragging of furnitures, dropping of things etc. They always came up to argue with us (most of the time we tried to talk nicely to them but they are always yelling) and both parties have called the police (us calling for harassment, them calling for noise) and we have still yet to resolve our dispute after multiple confrontation.
Recently, they came up to us and told us that they have been collecting enough evidences (video/sound recording) of our footsteps/furniture dragging etc. And will be filing a court order against us. While we tried to tell them that we did try our best to minimise noise level, they somehow thinks that we are deliberately stomping our feet to annoy them. They said it affected their life so badly that they got a warning letter from work for being late (because of the “footstep noises” they could not sleep so they are often late for work) and they are going to court to sue us for compensation and apology.
Honestly……. I’m not sure if my family and I are that fat to the extend that its disrupting their sleep……. besides we are also asleep at night lol. Who is walking around at night? ????
I have also filed a report against them for harassment (they kept coming up to look for argument!!!!) and I’m not so sure what else I can do (talking to them nicely is out of the question now – they yell when they see us lol) Do we just wait for the court letter or should we do something about it before it gets worse? ……..
