Condo Living - 8 Tips To Keep The Peace

Sep 6, 2007
Not everyone realizes the importance of respecting your neighbor, this is especially true if you live in a condo or an apartment. I have listed some tips to keep the peace, of course I have put my own spin on them.

1) Please put all your garbage in the appropriate disposal area, not on the floor, not in the hallway, but in the actual garbage bin. Just a reminder please shut the door to the garbage room, we all love that smell.

2) If you decide to carry a broken bag of rice across every conceivable hallways and common area, at the very least sweep it up. This goes for bags of flour, potting soil, animal waste and anything else that could fall on the ground. None of us want to be cleaning up after other people, we have enough to clean up.

3) Accidents do happen and if you accidentally break a piece of glass or a mirror at least be honorable enough and offer to pay, that is all it takes. Using condo fees to pay for broken common area property month after month gets a bit tiresome and annoying.

4) We all like to have the odd cocktail with our friends, but when that cocktail turns into a bender nobody wants to hear you yell down the hallways to your friends. Your friends aren't the only ones who can hear you.

5) I don't know why it is important to vacuum your apartment or move furniture at 5 in the morning. I'm sure the people beside you and below you have been up for hours and really don't mind. Come on people wait till 8 at least.

6) What part of stealing is ok with people? If there is mail or packages left in the mailroom don't take them. They don't have your name on them so they don't belong to you.

7) Please please don't allow your children to scream and run up and down the hallways. As cute as it may seem to you, it annoys everyone else in the building. If this is something you let your children do, you might know why nobody talks to you.

8) There is nothing wrong with walking around your apartment, but some people don't have a clue how nosy it is when you walk on your heals. If you have people living below you try to walk softly and on your toes.

These are just half of my tips on respecting your neighbors if you live in an apartment or condo. It is very important to keep the peace now rather than wage the war later.
