It sounds like neighbours are IN my room!!
« on: August 25, 2005, 10:05:36 AM »
Hi,
I have just rented a ground floor flat and have discovered that a neighbours flat is against my bedroom wall. The wall is very thin and as a result I can hear EVERYTHING they say and all the music they play as clearly as if they were IN MY ROOM playing/saying it!!!

I can believe it!! I can tell its going to make living their impossible but what can I do? Its a rented property so anything I do to the wall must be able to be removed with relatively little damage when I leave.

Because of this I cannot paint or use sealant etc. What can I hang/fix etc to the wall that WILL come off later?

Also I'm a student so I'm on a budget.  :-/

Please I'm going spare,
Thanks
Chloe

Well, Chloe, don't go spare on us!  At least not in front of everyone!
Seriously, due the limitations you mention, probably headsets and earplugs are the best remedy, http://www.soundproofing.org/sales/ear_muffs.htmbut bear in mind, if you can hear them, they can hear you!
