A DESPERATE renter has shared how her neighbours from hell stomp around so much that they have caused the ceiling to start collapsing.
The renter is starting to lose her patience as she claims that whenever she complains her neighbours just bang even harder.
Taking to Reddit the fed-up renter explains she lives on the second floor of a house in Meadowlands, New Jersey with her family.
She says her upstairs neighbours are men aged between 40-60s with “negative energy” who “stampede” every day all over the apartment can be heard “dropping/dragging/slamming heavy objects/furniture with occasional hammering.”
She then adds that at some point their behaviour caused her ceiling to start collapsing but they were not bothered, “carrying on with their daily routine”.
The poster also explains that the landlord- who she calls “slumlord,” lives far away and only cares “when rent is due”.

She adds that her family cannot afford to move home at the moment.
And she says the worst of everything is that whenever she used a broomstick to complain about the noise “they tap or stomp back harder, or drag furniture louder.”
She concludes by saying they have also turned the backyard into a “junkyard” as they hoard “so much garbage”.
The Redditor says her mother attempted to speak to the neighbours on a few occasions but they were “rude, disrespectful and denied any wrongdoing”.

People were quick to comment on the post and offer advice.
One said: “Fire marshal, Building inspector((AGAIN) Health Dept and keep calling.. you have to rattle those cages hard.
“The LL can’t evict you in retaliation for those calls either. That was some s***** repair work done to your ceiling btw.
“If that was considered proper repairs your city inspector is taking bribes!”
Another one commented: “Its terrible you have to go through that, and I am sorry your enduring it”.
Someone added: “I was on a jury for an eviction appeal and we gave someone back several month’s rent due to conditions approximately 87% less bad than yours!
“I’d be way less concerned with the guys upstairs than your s****** landlord.
“They’re annoying you but they’re probably just trying to keep their water running by the looks of the place.”
The Redditor later provided an update on the situation saying she contacted the police but apparently nothing could be done since the noise was during the daytime.
She says she was not sure whether a formal complaint would solve the problem so she contacted the building’s manager who visited the home and took pictures.
He eventually contacted the landlord who then needed to find a temporary solution.
It emerged that the neighbours were having plumbing issues and tried to fix them themselves.
In the end, she says she knows she can reach out to the tenants association if things get worse.
