Dealing with Noisy Construction or Transportation
Usually, local city ordinances restrict noise levels and schedules for construction and transportation. Tenants' primary remedy is to file a complaint with city or local government. Only in rare circumstances can tenants can break a lease if nearby construction or transportation is bothersome. First, the disruption must generally be so severe that their health is affected, such as preventing proper sleep or bone issues, and it must be prolonged. Second, tenants are expected to do some due diligence before renting, so they cannot complain about issues that they should have noticed when inspecting the property. For example, tenants cannot move next to an airport and then complain about the noise.
