While a strong case may help you resolve the issue effectively, it may be very expensive to hire a lawyer, ask an expert to measure sound levels, and then testify in court. However, if you do win the case and prove the noise is a nuisance, your neighbor will have to reimburse you for the cost of testing and measuring the noise for evidence. Moreover, if neighbors and your condo board refuse to join in on filing the case, the expense may be overbearing, and your case weak. Cases filed against noisy neighbors have increased in the city, ensuring noise-makers are fined for their violations, while condo boards have created better management rules to easily resolve the issue. You are entitled to hospitable and peaceful living conditions, and you have the right to ensure that.
