I have just moved into a "new" apartment, 3 floor building, I am on the top floor. My neighbour down below my bedroom turns out to be a loud snorer. I try to reason with the management, but they won't let me off the lease unless I pay the admin fee associated with assignment of the lease to a new tenant, which they equal to a one month's rent of $710. I said that I would not pay this exorbitant fee, whereas in the lease itself it says that the admin fee mentioned in clauses 15 and 16 (which are assignment and subleting options) will be $22.50. I have discussed the options with carpeting installers and experts and they all say there is no 100% proof that a professionally installed carpeting will resolve the problem of hearing the snoring. The management wants to try and give it a try and agrees to pay 1/3 of the cost, and if it's not going to work they would take it up to a next level...? How reasonable and wise it is to force me spend money on something that everybody keeps stating may not work. Wouldn't that make me fall into this hole deeper? Are there any cost-effective solutions or suggestions to end it in a civil way? I am a single mother with one child and really have no time or purpose to make it difficult for the management and myself. Any insight or advise will be helpful.

The product you need under the carpet and padding is MLV w/closed cell foam underlayment.

however, this will probably be more then $710 and you still might have transmission up through the wall.

Many people use headsets for this snoring problem.  If you decide to try this get one that is low profile and as comfortable as possible.  Here is a link which discusses some options:

The first one shown is the most comfortable for sleeping.  And you get special (closed cell vinyl nitrile acoustic foam) insert material that doubles the effectiveness of the headsets for free.
