If you invite a guest into your apartment, make sure that they are aware of the rules for your apartment building. Ask them to remove any noisy or hard footwear when entering you apartment and to keep noise levels down in hallways and stairwells. If you are having a party, or a particularly raucous movie night, let your neighbours know. Give them the chance to find other arrangements, especially if they have young children, or even invite them along. Try to arrange anything such as a party on a weekend to lower the possibility of disturbing others’ work routines. Always remember that any reckless behaviour or disputes between your guests and another tenant could become your responsibility and your neighbour is likely to hold it against you rather than your guest. So don’t allow a situation to occur where a dispute might develop.
