Expert's Assistant chat
Customer: I``m Frank;a retired senior citizen for the past 7 years.Recently after my dad passed away,the will stated to sell the house,therefore I had to move from the home that I found in Ottawa back in the 1970s.My brother was very helpful,and found me an apartment.At move in I was aware that this was an old bldg;only 3 story,s with very thin walls,and the street traffic can be heard inside the apt. I have been living there now for the past 17 mts. I moved in August 1st,2018 By the end of Sept;I was calling my landlord,super,owner manager of this apt bldg,complaining of ongoing,persistent,directed noise harassment from the tenant above me,on a daily basis,could be any hour in AM,PM during the night,which is very obsetting and was starting to effect me physically,socially,therefore under the signed Tenancy Agreement;Number 14(C) NOISE That no tenant shall not cause,permit or suffer any noise or interference,which is disturbing to the comfort or reasonable enjoyment of the rented premises by landlord or any other tenant or guest of tenant. Therefore I have called managt many times, have submitted 7 complaint reports,have knocked on the door of the tenant above me who is harassing me on a daily basis,has never opened his door to confront me,have had several impromptu hallway meeting with managt;still no concrete feedback,this tenants pattern of social behaviour towards me is very offensive inhumaine without just cause to inflict his sick torture at at his will, 24/7 I will stop now for your initial response. My email add is:***@******.*** Thanks.

JA: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
