Where the noise upstairs really comes from


I think sometimes we maybe take ourselves a bit too seriously.  Having said that, the above video was sent to us by a long-time Flatchatter who has the unique distinction of having taken the landlords of the apartment above his to court to get them to stop the neighbours making noise.

When his committee, strata manager, Fair Trading and the CTTT all let him down,  he convinced a district court to issue a noise abatement order against the owners of the apartment, rather than the people who were making the noise, forcing them to make their tenants behave or be evicted.

That still stands as a precedent today (although you wonder if it would have survived an appeal to the Supreme, High or Appeal courts).

But let’s not overthink it and just enjoy this off-the-wall look at what’s really happening on the other side of your ceiling.
