What would you do if your neighbor was covertly harassing you?
I moved into a new apartment in May of this year. I had a situation involving the police here a week after I moved in -- spoke with the manager, he was fine, I apologized and told him it wouldn't happen again. Ever since then, the girl who lives upstairs from me has been spreading rumors and lies, for example saying that I'm really loud really late at night, that I'm disrupting her sleep, waking her up at all hours, etc and that she's going to tell the landlord. She even came by my window the other day and went through a boquet of flowers that I had out there thinking that "they might be for her" and that someone had mistakenly left them for me. I know all this because I overhear her when my windows are open and can hear everything she's talking about. She's disparaging me and ball-faced lying. Its unbelievable...what would you do to protect yourself from action on the landlord's part, or just lay low unless its brought up? Is it even worth it to write him a letter advising him of the situation, or maybe she's just all talk? She obviously doesn't like me and it may just be because of what happened when i moved in, but, I don't deserve the harassment as she has no basis for it.

believe it or not I like to party and my neighbors never get home to late at night....here are your options: Ask if you can move to another building....or ASK if you can get out of your lease....or kick her ass.
