My wife and I moved into the Mediterranean in Sai Kung in September. It's an upmarket group of apartments in three towers, guards at gates etc. (At least, we thought it was).
Our immediate neighbour's door closing mechanism is broken and his door slams shut like a bomb/gunshot. Recently the door has been slamming shut 2,3 4 and 5 times a night between midnight and 6AM, jolting us awake. Yes illegal, we know.
The management have 'inquired' if he can hear any noise at night as a tactful way of highlighting others are awakened. This has clearly irritated him and now he just opens and closes the door (albeit not letting it slam as before) throughout the night without leaving the apartment, to wake us. We are almost monastic in our noise levels, ourselves.
Sai Kung or other SAR residents, what would you do now? He's aggressive. The management are super nice folk but don't have a plan. We can't get out of our lease and the location is convenient for the uni (HKUST). Our property agent is also wonderful and is chasing the management, as apparently is our landlady but again, the management seem caught off guard by this behaviour.
We are pursuing custom ear plugs, have the Watson's silicon ones and also contacted a noise reduction company (will post any updates on these fronts).
Suggestions welcome - thanks :-)
(We don't want to escalate or start slamming ourselves, tempting yes ... but would make us the bad guy to our other neighbours)
Tower 2. And I meant "neighbour noise" in the title but didn't spot the type until too late.
