I own a flat with a gym above it, managed by a property management company to whom we pay our service charges. It seems in recent years the tenants in the block have changed and now the gym is in constant use – and my rental flat is directly underneath it.
My tenant who is also a family friend has been unable to sleep due to the sound of crashing weights above her head, and some rather heavy people jumping on and off treadmills that makes the ceiling of my flat shake, the noise starts from 6am even on weekends!
I am trying to get the property managers to put in springy flooring and any other soundproofing and close the gym until they can do this, as quite frankly it seems bad property design to have a gym above flats with no soundproofing, but they do not respond.
My tenant is completely frazzeled due to lack of sleep which is affecting her work. She has had environmental health over to the flat, with the police; but they also need the property managers to respond.
What can I do here? Shall I just refuse to pay my service charges for next year? Any ideas?
