    You may find some wonderful old wooden floors under those carpets. If so, I would sand and refinish. Frankly TV noise is more likely to disturb the flat upstairs.

      Such noise having being amplified by the wooden floors......
      Based on the information posted, I offer my thoughts.Any action you then take is your liability. While commending individual effort, there is no substitute for a thorough review of documents and facts by paid for professional advisers.

        Indeed.

        Not only carpets but soft furnishings and upholstery absorb sound. You notice the difference if you clear a room to decorate it.

            I am a leaseholder in a house where the leaseholders all have a share in, and are directors of, the freehold company. I have had a lot of problems over noise from the upstairs neighbour who installed wooden floors despite my telling him (I am secretary of the company) this contravened the lease, which demands close carpeting in all areas except bathroom and WC). A lot of noise comes through. He just ignored what I said and theatened to make as much noise as ne could if I complained about noise again. (I had had no such problems with the previous owners who did have carpet down).

            He now wants to sell his flat and the freehold company has told him that he needs to install carpet before selling, to comply with the lease. Only then did he tetll us that he has installed underfloor heating which he thought needed a wooden floor to work properly. This made him reluctant to agree to lay carpet, he said, but now he has found out that underfloor heating CAN work with carpet and has agreed to lay down carpet before selling.

              by ARG
              Hello, I am new here so please excuse me if this question has already been asked, but a search has drawn a blank.

              I am a director of an RTM of a property with 25 flats. I would be very grateful if anyone here can advise whether a resident who is more than six months in arrears with his...

              The RTM can make a money claim online but as this enquiry concerns service charges the lessee will have the right to have the service charges determined unless already agreed. Depending upon the lessee's response to the claim, the County Court may refer the claim to the FTT.

              What are the...

              What is the relativity in this case?

              Would it be £110000 less 5.5% (to estimate for no act...

              A leaseholder, whether resident at flat or not, is contracted under the lease to pay annual service charge contributions when due. If he refuses to pay when due, the RTM can make the claim for service charge arrears through the small claims court (online) .

              Because it is a highly complicated subject and only the finest brains in the land can grapple with the subject - that is what the valuers will say .
