My roommate is alleging that I make too much noise when I go into the kitchen in the middle of the night to make food because I have weird sleep hours, and I'm usually hungry in the middle of the night. I try to be as quiet as I can, but some things I just can't help (such as the sound of water running if I need to wash a plate, or the sound of the oven door opening, a drawer opening, or my footsteps.) He's also alleging that it's causing him to lose sleep. He has threatened to tell the landlord if I make this kind of noise again, which again, I try not to, but I don't want to be afraid to go into the kitchen to make food when I'm hungry in the middle of the night. (Making food usually consists of heating something up in the oven). Is this type of thing grounds for eviction?I live in a rent controlled apartment. I have read what the grounds for eviction are in San Francisco, but a lot of it is pretty broad and subjective and written in ways that I don't really understand. So, I was wondering if I could get a "normal" person's explanation to this sometimes it's difficult to understand the lawyer explanation of this. No offense. I'm just not as smart as a lot of you, and it's hard for me to understand some of the legal explanations the way they are sometimes presented on here. I guess the main question in my post is if my landlord can claim this is a nuisance since my roommate is alleging that the noise I'm making is causing him to lose sleep. Or is this something that the roommate can solve by using earplugs, and I shouldn't worry about it? I try to be considerate, but I don't want to have to be restricted as to when I can make food when I get hungry.
