Sales staff are very nice and plainly said, when we leased, the units were basically sound proof. They include in their lease agreement that these units promote a Quiet Relaxing Environment....
The Engineers and Architects did not do a sufficient job in this design. For the cost of these apartments we expected much more.
Truth is, the floors transmit every step the upper tenants make. We can hear their dog whining when they are not home and barking when they are. We know when they get up... 6am every morning. So don't plan on sleeping in... EVER! We even know when they use the bathroom... Yep we know everything about them.
At least they are clean.... We can hear their vacuum cleaner running across the floor, we know when they shower and wash their clothes because the washing machine and dryer are very noisy. We hear water running through the walls every time they flush, Wash clothes and wash dishes... So Quiet? ....... Far from it!
The other day there were four visiting cars, from the neighbors, parked directly in front of my garage. I could not even get in it. So there is a lack of consideration exhibited toward your neighbors.
So ask me if I would lease here again? DEFINITELY NOT!. If I can get out of this lease now I would. It is stressful living here when you want to have peace and quiet.
