Upstairs neighbor in condo 'harassing' me
I bought a small, 1br 700sq ft condo about a year ago. The walls are extremely thin and the people above me have fake hardwood floors. I work from home, but I'm out of the condo at least 4-5 hours a day doing stuff. I assumed that the person above me had a job or at least left the house every so often. A couple days after I moved in, the person above me started to literally yell loudly if I did something not to their liking. If I ran the faucet too often, the person would yell stuff like "GO AHEAD, GET ANOTHER DRINK OF WATER!". He stopped doing stuff like that, but he still harasses me occasionally. Sometimes, he will follow me around and drop stuff right above my head. If I do the dishes, he will start bouncing a ball right above me, then when I go to the bathroom or the next room, I'll hear him walk over also and start doing it in that area. It's like this guy is obsessed with me.

Also, every single morning, I get woken up at 3, 4, and 5am on the dot by him dropping something extremely heavy directly above my bed, or stomping loudly with his shoes on the faux hardwood floors, while I'm sleeping. This person is so crazy. I don't even think he sleeps. He never leaves his place and doesn't have a job. Also, he chainsmokes in his unit, because my place smells like smoke non-stop, and I have allergies because of it. I know it's him, because I know the people on the other sides of me, and one of them doesn't smoke, and the other person does it outside, and the smell from that goes away within minutes, because of the wind and air. But the person above me must smoke with no ventilation or anything, nonstop. All my clothes and everything in my unit smells of smoke. I light candles and have 2 air purifiers, but they don't even put a dent in it.

But the main thing is the person stomping and dropping stuff above me, every morning/night, at 3am, 4am, and 5am, on the dot. I have no idea what this person has against me. I guess they're just pissed off because someone bought the unit below them, after it being vacant for 6+ months, and because they don't have completely privacy. This guy just never, ever leaves. He hasn't left in 3 days. Every time I come home and see his car in the parking lot, I get depressed. I've literally only seen him a handful of times in the parking lot, while leaving or coming home. I just say hello, and usually he doesn't even acknowledge me, or just says "hi" back. It's so bizarre. I put the condo back on the market, literally a month after moving in, and still haven't found a buyer. I'll probably lose between 25 and $30,000 (I didn't do enough research and overpaid around $20,000 more than it's actually worth), but I'm willing to take the hit to get away from this lunatic. I'm literally afraid of this guy, and I can't relax at all.

Re: Upstairs neighbor in condo 'harassing' me
Keep a journal for 3 days of everything that occurs



Type yourself up a nice cease and desist letter and type the address on the envelope, then have it mailed to him registered mail, advise him he is causing you great personal grief ( insert details from journal here)and if he wont cease you will be forced to sue him for the trauma of his on going harassment , advise him you will be filing a copy of the notice and receipt he just signed for the letter !

While this doesnt actualy mean shit , some bullys will back down if you push back , what I would be far more worried about is how he knows your headed to the bathroom if he is ABOVE you?

Re: Upstairs neighbor in condo 'harassing' me
Get a super loud stereo, mount a set of sub woofers on your ceiling. Find the bassist hip hop song you can find. Every time you leave the house play it loud with the bass on high.

If any other neighbor complains, tell them it's the guy upstairs.

When he complains, tell him it's time to make a deal. You will stop the Hip hop, if he ceases his crap to.

If that don't work, go stay at a friends house for a few days, leave the stereo on the whole time. Show him that you can make more noise, for longer.


Other wise call the cops.

Re: Upstairs neighbor in condo 'harassing' me
I can relate to how youre feeling. When I went to university, the guy who rented below me was a music "producer" with a rotting off toe. He had his "studio" set up through his sony play station. His hours were 3 pm-5 am. That was because his clients were all strippers who got off work at 3 am and came over to "record".

His parents rented the upstairs apartment on top of it all. It got to the point that I wasnt "allowed" to have my bedroom fan on, flush the toilet at night, use the kitchen entrance(the door closing was too loud), walk on the floor before noon, and my boyfriend wasnt allowed to laugh.

My best friend and I moved from that place rather quickly, although it wasnt soon enough. Between the aforementioned insanity, the land lord being a fuckstick and finding footprints outside MY bedroom and our front living room windows in the snow, it was all a little much!

 Quoting: Corizon


That's all good advice. I'm actually afraid, though, that it would just upset this guy even more and he'd come at me even worse. I just want to get out of this place.

Regarding him knowing I'm headed to the bathroom.. I wear shoes during the day and, while I'm not sure if he can hear me walking from place to place, he can definitely hear me opening and closing the medicine cabinet, running the water, or lifting up the toilet in the bathroom (as well as putting down a glass or something else on the kitchen counters). I know this because it's as soon as I make a noise like that, that I hear him walk over to above where I am.

The walls are EXTREMELY thin. I feel like if I stood on a chair and pushed the ceiling too hard with the palm of my hand, it would definitely poke through and I'd see nothing in between the plaster and their floor, aside from wooden beams, maybe. I've never seen such poor construction as this. It was built in 1978, by the way.

Actually, one time, I googled "paper thin walls" and was reading some messages on a forum post, and one of the posts was actually from someone else who lives in the same complex, saying the same exact thing - that the walls are paper thin and they've never experienced something like that, where they can hear everything above them that loudly.

Don't they have a homeowners association to complain to? The guy sounds like a complete loon. Do this for me. Sit back in a comfy chair, put on some really upbeat music that makes the spirit soar and visualize him losing his condo and getting evicted because he doesn't have a job. You can hear the movers moving his stuff out and him yelling at the movers and slamming doors because he's pissed he's getting evicted. Imagine that today is the day he moves out. If you go there in mind, you go there in the body.

Ohhh, my neighbors who used to live below me, were loud and obnoxious. Everytime we went down to tell them to turn their shit down, or shut their kid up, they got louder.

We smoked them out. Smoked like chimneys on our balcony so they had to keep all their windows shut. Annoyed them so much they moved.

I've been living here for 6 yrs, they had only been here for 1 yr. So glad they moved.

Hand held canister. Includes 3 foot flexible vinyl tubing with plastic penetrating tip. A push button activator top controls the amount of spray. The Fox Labs Extraction Grenade is a sound solution for extracting a person from a vehicle, motel room, or any small area.

For example: In a barricade situation a tactical team could quietly drill a hole in the house, insert the penetrating tip through the wall and begin spraying. Before the perpetrator knows what is happening, he is overwhelmed with Fox Labs potent pepper spray formula, and is then routinely apprehended by police or security personnel.
