“The past week or two there has been a lot of yelling and shouting in the corridors of the apartment building I live in by other tenants. Is there anything I can do to complain / report this? I want to move out but I have 6 months left on my fixed-term lease and can’t afford to cover what’s left.” – Tenant, WA.
We asked Principal/Business Manager at Ray White Leading Edge, Tricia Gilbert for advice on this situation:
Tricia said the best thing to do would be to inform your Property Manager / lessor.
“You are entitled to reasonable quiet enjoyment, comfort and privacy,” she said.
“The Property Manager can then contact the Strata Manager of the complex and the other occupants can be issued with a Breach if necessary.”
For information on your right to quiet enjoyment as it applies to your state or territory, contact the tenancy authority where you live.
