Per previous posts, I’m hoping the HOA will interject with my noisy upstairs neighbor. There’s been two officers that came by on previous occasions and both made it come across as I was difficult, I should consider a single family home and the neighbor is entitled to be loud in the late hours. I have provided two police reports to the HOA from those visits, I spoke with the lead officer at the precinct and they updated the notes to reflect my side better. Moving forward, I only plan to bring recordings to the HOA and wanted an officer to come by if it happens. This time, instead of them knocking on her door, just listen as a witness and write the report. The neighbor quieted down by the time the officers came, which is why I’m hesitant to call them over again. I will record in advance but that’s useless to the officer, it only matters if it takes place when they’re there. The HOA only requires either a police report or a recording, should I ask an officer to come by as a witness?

What going to sue for exactly? Talk to the owner of the unit. They are responsible. All HOA can do is the same. No special powers.

I’m hoping with more complaints they will fine them

Hope springs eternal. Fines are not that big of a deal. The tenant is not going to get fines. The owner might but does not equal eviction nor action.

As has been repeatedly posted in related threads recently, Florida COAs/HOAs can fine tenants for rule and covenant violations.

You have been given lots of advice, feedback and sympathy about this on multiple threads in this forum and multiple forums on reddit. I don't know what you hope to gain from continually posting about the same issue, and asking people to predict the future for you.

It is called shopping for answers you want.

You're probably anxious because you have no control over this situation, other than the ability to walk away from it (or wear noise-canceling headphones all the time).

I don't know why so many disgruntled condo owners reject the one option that they do control. Nobody is obligated to continue living somewhere that doesn't meet their needs. Yeah, moving is a pain in the patootie, but is it any worse than living next door to an obnoxious neighbor?
