I have had this to happen before.  It is a real problem as to what to do...

Get in touch with the owner and let them know ..

We were remodeling a 2-bedroom/2 bath condo on the ground floor of a 2-story condo building.The guy above is a renter. He takes his two large dogs for a walk, stops to chat. He said the only problem selling this condo would be … crime.

He said there was a young kid on a Mercedes, who comes there every Saturday, and is selling drugs there in the open, and people come and line up to buy that stuff.

He said he called the Police, but they were scared of coming there.

Next Saturday I was there. Sitting inside by the window, no lights, watching… No black Mercedes, no kid, nobody. I came back on Sunday, sat by the window, watching.

Nobody, nothing…

On Monday he was walking his dogs and I asked him about Saturday, and he told me that he said something to the guys, selling drugs, and they pulled a gun on him and threatened to kill him. He grabbed me by the shoulder and stuck a finger to my neck, showing how it all happened… he said it was about 10 in the evening, and there were junkies all over. Yeah, it happened right in front of the window, where I was sitting until close to midnight.

As always, he smelled alcohol… So, I stopped paying attention to his fairy-tales and forgot about it.

The condo came out stunningly beautiful, and whoever came to see it, said wow! The guy from upstairs offered help with showing, but I nicely declined. I am coming myself, we always come for showing, no lockboxes, and, of course, no help from the neighbors needed. But we thanked him…

After certain number of showings and wows, we get the word that the contract was coming… and coming… and coming… and it never came. There was some concern about safety.

We were a bit surprised but hey, things happen. Then this story repeated again. The agent told us that the Buyer got bad information about the crime in the complex. Where did she get it? The agent did not know for sure, but thought she went to Police and this is what they told her.

We are paying Police Department of South Daytona a visit. While there is some crime in the area, it is pretty much on the same level as everywhere in South Daytona. Mind you, South Daytona is considered a great area when it comes to crime… there is little crime; it is generally a safe small city. So, it does not come from Police...

Then comes the showing, where the agent, instead of calling me 20-30 minutes prior to showing, called me when they were already there. No problem, he said they would wait for me.

I am there in about 8-9 minutes, I hear voices in the breezeway. I hear “I would have never bought here if I were you… I am waiting for the lease to end to run from here..."

The guy upstairs is standing in front of his door on the second floor looking down at  spectators, and he is Anthony Hopkins on stage reliving the story that never happened…

A big helper…

Get a statement from police if there has been no issues and then find the owner and tell them what is goining on

Good evening Ginger. This story made me sick. Little control over neighbors.

Thanks for reblogging. I agree with Sheila. You can't control neighbors. He pays his rent on time, and this is all what the landlord wants
