I am just looking for some advice or tips on what I can do regarding this. As a relatively new homeowner I am not too clued up on what to do in this situation..
So basically, I bought a flat in a relatively modern new block of flats (South Lanarkshire area) in October. I am on the middle floor. I am a 25 year old female, working full time and live by myself and spend a lot of time at my boyfriend’s flat, and I’ve never had more than 2 friends in my flat at one time (I’ve also NEVER had a party or anything like that).
I have a cross trainer/ellipitical trainer in my living room that I’ve not used in about 5 weeks (festive season and all that!). So last night I go to use it at 7pm (not particularly late at night?). I only stay on it for 15 minutes and I don’t have any music or background noise in my flat at the time (was using earphones). When I came off it my downstairs neighbour (who I’ve never actually met before) was knocking at my door and went ballistic at me.
He basically accused me of using my cross trainer “all the time” and saying that I’ve made ‘constant noise’ since I moved into the flat which is definitely not correct considering I am always at work or at my boyfriends!
He spoke very agressively towards me to the the point where I was actually in tears and he made some cheeky comment about how ‘he bought his flat’ as if he thought I was maybe renting mine?
Any idea on what I should do? Is this something I should maybe mention to the factors for the building? Does anyone have any experience in this?
