My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: New York, in the City of Buffalo, in the county of Erie.
I live in the city of buffalo, and the apartments in the area are close to each other.
My neighbor behind my home sits perpendicular to my own, the have it about 50 feet from their street, so their home frames my backyard, with an additional 2 fences framing out my yard, which I share with another neighboring apartment.
We both rent out our apartments, and we have the same landlord.
When the issue first started with the noise, it was very late at night 3am, 4am. I called my landlord the next day to let him know. He said he had gotten a ticket about them, before about their noise from their stereo system. (not from me) he said that anytime they make noise to just call him. My landlord which is a very nice, if slow, older gentlemen. And although i call him late at night, (they always play their music between 11pm and 6am) he just doesn't wake up to my calls, or return them the next day. He has asked that i call him instead of the police. I usually don't mind until i try to go to bed.
After several calls to him at late night hours, with no response, i got fed up, and called the police. Now every time they blast their stereo so loud to rattle my home, I call. The police must have been there at least 12 times in the past few months ; And they just keep going.
I love my apartment, i live close to my work, and the best part of the city. I guess my question comes down to, what do i do now? should i write my landlord a letter? Should i file a noise complaint somewhere? is there something i can do? I dont want to move anywhere, iv'e been here over a year, and i like it.
