Our 200 unit co-op has a ground level parking garage and recently the tenant who lives directly above it, who is not a shareholder, has made a complaint to management that the door mechanism can be heard loudly in his apartment every time the a car goes in an out. It is loud and is a nuisance. Can this constitute a breach to the right of quiet enjoyment a tenant has within their apartment. This is the first we've heard about the noise in all the years he's resided there. It is a sponsor-owned apartment. Whose responsibility is it to investigate this complaint and does it need to be remedied now if it has been noisy for many years? Does the co-op have an obligation to muffle/attenuate the noise or is it the sponsor? Thanks.
