breach of contract--Somerhill Farms apartments, Gainesville VA

If someone on the second floor
  • slams their door
  • drops something(s) on the floor
  • stomps around their apartment
  • rearranges their furniture
  • stomps up or down the stairs to the 3rd or first floors
  • moves in or moves out
residents on the 4th floor not only hear it, but they FEEL it too--tremors shake the entire building.

How would you feel if the landlord/management company (Gates Hudson) for the apartment that you are living in rented the apartment below you to young rowdies who have no regard for their neighbors? screaming, yelling, slamming doors, etc. during the workweek and on weekends until 2 AM. 

Somerhill Farms in Gainesville VA is a mix of working and retired persons and at least one group of young rowdies. We feel betrayed that the landlord/management company (Gates Hudson) would allow such a situation. 

Gates Hudson's lease says:


... No baby carriages, tricycles, bicycles, or other articles of personal property may be deposited, allowed, or permitted on the patios or balconies of the building ...


You or your occupants and/or guests may not engage in the following activities:
     a) Behaving in a loud or obnoxious manner.
You may not make or permit any disturbing noises that unreasonably interfere with the rights, comforts or convenience of other tenants."

Gates Hudson doesn't enforce its own lease.  Other residents expect Gates Hudson to enforce its lease for their (other residents') safety, protection and comfort. 

If property manager Gates Hudson enforced their own lease, then it would put an end to the obnoxious door slamming (sometimes more than 20 times in a single day). At a minimum, these inconsiderate, rude, immature adults slam the door 12 times each day when they each take their bicycles, one-by-one, to and from the balcony.

But, Gates Hudson doesn't enforce their own lease.

You'd have to be pretty stupid not to know that six college-age foreigners (I don't know the language that they speak) with bicycles and a den mother are trouble. Gates Hudson isn't that stupid. GH knew that they'd be trouble; GH sold out the other residents here by renting to them--all for the almighty $$$. The fact that GH doesn't enforce their own lease, e.g. six bicycles on the balcony, noise, one leasee and six full-time "visitors"?, etc., proves that GH sold us out. It also proves that Gates Hudson's lease, as far as the owner/landlord responsibilities are concerned, isn't worth the paper that it's written on.

WARNING:  Don't rent at Somerhill Farms apartments in Gainesville VA.
