This is probably how we often imagine a neighbor who lives behind the wall and turns on the hammer drill at eight Saturday morning. Believe it or not, your neighbors treat you in the same way during noisy parties and the demolition of tiles in the bathroom..
Neighbors can be adequate and try to sweeten the resentment for the repair that lasted until late at night with sweets. Why not, if it will help restore good neighborly relations. In addition, an attempt to apologize in itself is already a good sign. In general, in Moscow, it is prohibited to carry out repair work after 21:00 and until 09:00 on weekdays. On weekends, repairs can only be carried out after 10:00 am and until 22:00. You must also take a break from 13:00 to 15:00.
Also great neighbors who decided to thank the residents of their staircase for their understanding and patience during the renovation with new tiles on the floor. This is already a much more weighty and tangible gratitude than candy, how can you not forgive such neighbors for the inconvenience!
Humor helps build relationships, including good-neighborly ones. Neighbors will most likely react to such a warning about the upcoming renovation with a smile. We have already written above about when it is allowed to carry out repair work in Moscow, but these rules may differ depending on the region. The State Duma recently proposed, on the eve of the start of renovation in the capital, to tighten liability for noise in apartment buildings at prohibited times, as well as to introduce a single law in this area in all regions. But so far the document has not been adopted. You will definitely not be mistaken if you only carry out repairs on weekdays from 09:00 to 19:00 and refuse to work on weekends and holidays. In general, we advise you to clarify these rules according to the legislation of your region in order to avoid administrative liability..
More helpful neighbors who are worried about young children. Indeed, babies can sleep not from 13:00 to 15:00, when repair work is prohibited by law, but at other times.
Again candy as a gift for the noise when changing windows. In this case, the work fell on a holiday, which exacerbates the situation, but in most cases this issue is resolved peacefully and without problems, especially since replacing windows will not take much time with well-coordinated work of specialists.
Indicating the phone numbers of not only the owners of the apartment, but also the foreman who will directly deal with the repair is a very smart and useful move. It is the foreman who will be able to “sort out” the problems with disgruntled neighbors on the spot and the owners will be less concerned.
An example of how you can spit on the opinion of neighbors. What to do in this case? Experts advise to call the representatives of the sanitary and epidemiological station, who can measure the noise level in your apartment. Write a statement to Rospotrebnadzor dealing with such issues. Contact the district police officer, shifting the problem of a noisy neighbor with repairs at a prohibited time on his shoulders. Note that calling the police will certainly not improve relations with neighbors, so this is a last resort..
Residents with renovation in response to their actions can receive such an answer from “loving” neighbors. Again, it is best to carry out repairs on weekdays, although, we understand, if you also work and are doing alterations yourself, it will be very difficult to adhere to this rule.
Everyone has neighbors, even residents of private houses. Of course, we often prefer to encounter them less often, not all of them are pleasant people for us. But maintaining normal relations is not so difficult – saying hello on the stairs or in the elevator, trying not to interfere with each other – this is the minimum that serves as a “lubricant” for interactions between neighbors.
