The apartment of my upstairs neighbor is owned by very big realtor company. I complaint to them that upstairs floor is very old, so every single footstep makes very loud squeaky noises. I think it can not be solved by just covering the floor with rugs.
I complaint a lot, but they said it was building problem and 80% of coverage is the best they can do.
I checked my neighbors' apartments in this building, but no aparment unit makes these big noises. Is there any way to make the owner fix the floor?
Does anyone know if Bill A4090 has become a law?
This bill would allow shareholders to fine up to $500.00 each the managing agent or board who did not distribute heir Star exemption(s) in a timely manner or used the credits for other purpose.
I live on the first floor. My second floor neighbor lives with her mom and high schooler son, but every Friday her brother takes his son and stay on second floor until Sunday. Yes, the boy runs, jumps, and makes a lot of noises. On top of that she brings about ten people including 4, 5 kids on Saturday. They stay up to 12:30 am.
My family is in the hell for the time. It has been years. My husband and me complained to management office, they said they couldn't stop family visit.
This apartment building is very old and noisy. Is there any coop rules about noise issue from visitors?
Who is responsible for replacing, maintaining, and paying for the mailboxes in a coop? We had ours replaced by the USPS 2-1/2 years ago and the present letter carrier is struggling to re-lock them after he's delivered the mail. If they need to be changed again, do we have to pay anything? Thank you.> Join the conversation Comments (1)
"Hello, my name is Jessica, I am 25 now and will be finishing school now..
Couple questions about student loans and credit.
So, do they affect the credit score?
I don't have any job right now, and I am constantly looking, how much time will I have to start paying them off?
I will have around $40,000 total of debt and just want to see how it will affect my credit because I plan on buying a home in the next 3 years.
Do student loans will hurt my credit?
Will I need to hire a a <a href="https://raiseupcreditrepair.com/credit-repair-san-antonio.html">credit repair company</a> so I have a score of 700 at least?
Lets say I find a job at 80k, how much should I pay them off?
Not sure what the interest is.
Anyway, thanks! and I hope I am in the right category!"
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. My apartment that I own had 3 leaks last year that were fixed with just plaster and paint. I developed joint paint and it has been getting worse so I saw a doctor that tested me for mold biotixion illness and it seems positive. I had an ERMI test done that showed that I have 2 strains of mold related to water damage. I now have a ceiling that has bubbles again and asked the building to bring in an expert in mold and pay for it to take care of the issue. I was told by buidling management company to have my attorney contact them. Can someone suggest what i can do without spending money on an attorney as I have pictures of the ceiling now and results from the ERMI home test plus a note from my doctor.
I called 311 but was told that if I own the apartment, they won't get involved.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I live in a 4 building cooperative that allows for wheelchair access through the basement only. The lobby of the building has 2 steps leading to the front door, and then 5 additional steps leading to the elevators. The lobby is fundamentally inaccessible to anyone with any type of physical handicap or limitation. For years, the management company has locked the basement and hence restricted accessible building entry and exit between the hours of 9:00 PM and 8:00 AM. The management company insists that the elevator is locked from entering the basement between these hours for the safety of the residents. A number of tenants, however, require building exit and entrance between the hours of 9:00 PM and 8:00 AM, but are currently trapped in their apartments during these hours.
I have requested that this policy be revisited and revised or outright eliminated, but the management company has been uncooperative. I contacted the NYC Commission on Human Rights, and they have confirmed that disabled tenants and shareholders do have a means of recourse here and that they are willing to allocate their legal services to this cause. My understanding is that the Commission generally requires extensive costly building upgrades in response to these types of complaints.
As a shareholder, I am reluctant to pursue this route because I do not want to be responsible for the cooperative needlessly incurring this cost.
Are there any other means of requiring the management company to make the basement/ramp accessible at all times? Is this an issue of building common space use guaranteed in our proprietary lease?
