we've just bought a ground floor flat. the upstairs neighbours were over, and casually mentioned they are thinking of polishing the floors in their flat.
argh! we had specifically checked this point before we bought and it's clear in the lease of each flat we have to have noise reducing floor coverings (well actually not ours as we are the ground floor). i really want to be neighbourly but this is the one thing i'd die in a ditch over.
i was a bit unnerved actually, and tried to mention the lease, and it didn't seem to go over too well. any advice for how to casually and in a friendly manner make it clear it's not permitted and we'd never agree to it? it's very important to us to get on with my neighbours and they seem very nice.
