I have a question about whether or not my apartment was upgraded up to
code. The basis for thinking this is that I can hear absolutely
everything that my upstairs neighbors do. So I was thinking:
1. how do I find out if there is construction code applicable to my
ceiling? For example, I can tell that my ceiling is a little less than
1 inch sheet rock, then there are 10 inches of space, with no
insulation, then there is my neighbors floor. Is this up to code?
2. where can I find this information, who can I ask?
3. lastly, if I find that the construction is not up to code, can I
ask my landlord 1. to either fix it or 2. reduce my rent?
I've complained about my neighbors numerous times, asked that they
install a rug, but they haven't done a thing. No I guess I need to go
the 'up to code' route. I'm not a bastard, it is simply that these
people have absolutely no regard for others...
