I call the police several times on her and they said they cant do anything and i told the rent office i don't know how many times an haven't did anything about it. I know don't work or pay bills because of my health. I ask several times to turn it down, she is the only one blasting her music like. One time she didn't turn it off until 5 am in the morning and work me out of my sleep twice once at 2 am and the other at 6 am. I have it written down in my phone when she play her music. She also wait til the rent office closed and play her music like right now on 12-09-2019 and won't turn it down if you ask her to she will that she pay the bills there and no one else does. So can i please get some help with it or move to a one bedroom, or to another location. Oh! I put in two transfer for another location twice and claim they don't know where they at.
