Your best bet is to outline the problem in writing and ask your landlord to solve it. Maybe by installing carpet upstairs? If landlord fails to solve the problem you can either ask the landlord to move you to another apartment - maybe one upstairs so you won't have anyone over you. If that doesn't work, you can then resort to self-help remedies. You would need to follow exact procedures. Here is a link that might be helpful. Best of luck. http://www.illinoislegalaid.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=home.dsp_content&contentID=372
