Problematic neighbor in apartment next door . She harasses her adjacent neighbors by banging on our doors , yelling vulgarities / threats through the floor / wall . She works odd hours , so this sometimes occurs late at night . I've lived here six months , have audio recordings of her beginning three months ago . She paces her apartment , yells wildly often 30 - 60 minutes at a time . Does this at least once a day , four days a week . Police intervention worsens situation , and Landlord being " soft " on issue . Taking class on line , my apartment is my work office ; disrupting my focus on all levels . After these rants she turns music up loudly . Would like to give her two options : move out , or reimburse me a portion of my rent + portion of cost of the course I'm taking . Do I have a case ? Where do I take this ?
