The Question Club
My SO and I have lived in this apartment for 15 months. Overall, we're happy with it. But we've had a regular problem with the neighbors being noisy for at least the last 6 months. (We've complained to the management 10 times and called the police 4.)|
Our lease is up this month. We have to give 60 days notice to move out.
We went to the office today and spoke to one of the managers, telling them that we're SICK of the noise and we wanted to give our notice.
The manager was upset, cause she knew about the problem and had been warning the neighbors for months, but it was obvious to me they were never going to do anything about it until we threatened to leave.
So, the manager asked us what they could do to keep us there, saying maybe she could give us something off our rent. (We've always paid rent on time and never had any complaints against us.) We told her we didn't know, but the neighbors above MUST GO.
She said okay and said she would talk to her boss and see what they could arrange.
TQC, what will my apartment manager offer me to keep me to stay?
What should I demand?
Sidenote: We feel like we're getting a little ripped off on our rent. This place is nice but old, poorly insulated, and a little expensive for the quality of the area and interior. We looked at new apartments the last two days and found a place we really like, so considering all that we want to be somewhat picky on what we accept. Personally I feel like for the crap we've had to put up with, we should demand a really good deal.
Tl;Dr Version: My neighbors suck. My management agrees and wants to offer me lower rent and kick the neighbors. What should I demand?
