How to Be a Good Neighbor in a Rental Property, Hinesville, Georgia

Whether you live in a home or a rental property, you’ll likely have neighbors. Dealing with neighbors isn’t always easy, especially if you’re in an apartment, condo, duplex, or any place with a shared wall. However, if you’re kind to them, your life will be much better off.

4 Etiquette Tips When Living in Apartments

1. Reach Out

Take the time to know the people around you — introduce yourself after moving in and greet new neighbors if you see unfamiliar faces. Extend a helping hand whenever you can. If you feel comfortable, you can give them your contact information so they can reach you if they need anything.

Be friendly when you see them around the rental property and try to get to know more about them, but don’t be offended if they don’t reciprocate your kindness. Refrain from asking them too much if they seem uncomfortable disclosing personal information.   

2. Keep the Noise Down

3. Keep Them Informed

If you plan on having guests over, notify your neighbors first so they won’t be surprised by the increased noise and activity. Doing so can prevent disputes that can drag on for years.

4. Check Yourself

Refrain from doing anything that will annoy or exasperate your neighbors, such as leaving your trash bag out, failing to look after your pets, or using their parking slot without permission. Be considerate even if they aren’t to you. Whenever there are misunderstandings, keep a cool head and try to resolve them in a civilized manner.
