- What can I do about noisy neighbours?
- What can I do about neighbours playing loud music in my apartment building?
Hazel Easthope (2019, p.7) lists close proximity to neighbours as the number one difference in apartment living compared to other types of housing. “[P]eople who live in multi-unit properties live closer to their neighbours than people who live in detached houses and usually have a larger number of immediate neighbours. This means that there are more people close by who can potentially annoy you and whom you can potentially annoy.”
