My DH and I just rented our dream condo in June, unfortunately our dream condo did not come with dream neighbors. The neighbor below us severely dislikes us and is filing formal complaints against us and our dog for noise violations. We have gotten 4 violations in 5 months and they are becoming more and more frequent. There are also no details and our neighbor has no proof that our dog is even making noise. We are so stressed about our neighbor and filing more complaints that we are walking on egg shells in our home, turning off/down all electronics at 9pm, putting the dog in the kennel at 9pm, and as a result we really aren't sleeping at night because we are listening for the dog so that the neighbor doesn't complain. We have been trying to talk to the neighbor since we got the first violation, but he won't answer his door or respond to any of our attempts to contact him.
We found a great home in our price range that we love, BUT we need to get out of our lease. Any ideas/advise?
