Hello, greetings from Ottawa, Canada!
I‘m typing this from a hotel room. My son and I like to sleep away on Saturday nights so that my upstairs neighbours can feel free a bit/we can sleep well. Usually we stay at a friend‘s, but we wanted a ‘vacation feel‘ this time. Irony of ironies, it was noisier here since they gave us a room at the front, and the bar scum (o, sorry,end-times university students) periodically woke us up. Meh - we still are enjoying our stay. My noise issue is two-fold. I am in a heritage house, two 2-storey dwellings attached. On the left hand side, one unit, on the right, the down- and upstairs have been seperated into two units (I am on the bottom). There is zero insulation separating the up- from downstairs. I am scheduled to see a legal clinic housing consultant to see if I can ‘force‘ the landlady to install proper carpeting upstairs. As it is, simply ‘using‘ the upstairs can easily prevent us from sleeping. I also want to know if I can have the places declared unfit to be separate units. Any thought?( The second issue, I will describe later ...)

Hmm... If you get the place labeled unfit then what happens to the people living in the place.... yourself included.
