They’ve been doing construction directly underneath my apartment for about 3 months now. I told my landlord he can keep the 2 months rental deposit as my next two months rent and I will be out of there before the next two months rental period is over. Today I got an email from the realtor reminding me about the termination clause in my rental agreement. Its the typical “youll be fined one months rent for early termination, unless provided under the law…”
The noise these people are making is unreal. First, they were jackhammering rock from the foundation of the building. It was so loud and vibrated the whole place, my furniture would practically move along the floor. They would start around 8am during the week and around 9 or 10am on Saturdays (which was completely aggravating!) I could barely hear the television even with the volume turned all the way up! The jackhammering has since stopped and been replaced by incessant hammering, sawwing, workers yelling, and the lousy music they listen to, all starting at the same times during the day. They might as well be doing all this in my bedroom with all the noise they make. I cant take the headaches and noise any longer.
Ive called the police numerous times to no avail (makes me wonder what would happen if someone breaks into my place and tries to kill me…), and even called the Environmental Protection Agency, also which didnt do anything helpful. I was just wondering if anybody ever had a problem like this and if this is legal ground enough to break my lease. Certainly the law has to say that if a place is “unlivable” then the tenant has a right to leave at his discretion. Also, is there a place online that describes tenancy law in detail (and in English?)
