Ask Curbed: Do I Have A Right to Peace and Quiet?

New, 29 comments

A reader is at wits end and needs some advice for dealing with an inconsiderate landlord.

"My landlord is having construction done on the apartment directly across the hall from me, for the last billion weeks. They are hammering, drilling and now they have literally setup a bandsaw outside my door. They were at it by 9am today. Do I have any rights as a tenant to get compensated when there is this much construction going on?" Beyond soundproofing and asking for earplugs, what options does this renter have?
