    RECEIVED FROM A COF MEMBER AND POSTED ON THEIR BEHALF


    QUESTION:

    We have two neighbours, one who lives above the other, feuding over the noise. The downstairs neighbour believes the upstairs neighbour makes too much noise.

    OUR RESPONSE:

    Noise and sounds are very personal and very difficult to measure.

    Q. Does the condo have standards for underlays to reduce noise transmission to units below? If not, they should have standards.

    Q. Has the upstairs neighbour replaced the original flooring? If so, when they did, did the Board of Directors approve the work? Did the replacement meet the condo standards?

    Consider having the two parties select an independent party, like a building inspector, architect or flooring specialist, look at the flooring. Have the two parties select an independent 3rd party.

    Involving an independent party can remove personalities and emotions from a dispute.

    Unfortunately, we do not have a dispute resolution tribunal in Alberta, as promised by legislation passed in 2014. COF continues to press the Government – Service Alberta – to address this shortcoming.
