My question involves a condominium located in the State of: New York
We own a unit in a large condo. My wife is a fitness coach and uses a home workout DVD during the day to work out because we have a 16 month old son, so she's not able to go to the condo's gym. Our downstairs neighbor ( a renter) complained about her exercising twice and the board requested that we install rugs so that it meets the building's requirement of 70% coverage. We spent thousands of dollars to install thick, custom made carpets, so that she'd continue to be able to exercise. The neighbor is still complaining 6 months later and has gathered other neighbor friends to back her claim. At a recent board meeting, the owner of the unit where the people are complaining, threatened to call the police and even move back in and play her music loud all night to disturb my family and my child. It's at the point where I don't know what to do. I'm pretty sure that the board can't fine us, ask us to stop exercising or make us add more rugs. I also hope that the police wouldn't respond to such a ridiculous call. I'm mostly worried about her threat to disturb us. It's caused a lot of stress and it sounds almost criminal or litigious. Is there a way I can silence them from complaining and get them to back off and let us live our every day lives? I'd go through the board, but I'm not sure who's side they're on and whether anything will be done. Should I reach out to a lawyer?
