Yes, the Residential Tenancy Act (RTA) applies to rental apartments.
If another tenant in the building is causing a problem, you should inform your landlord in writing right away. You have the right to quiet enjoyment, which includes freedom from:
- Unreasonable disturbances
- Intimidation or harassment from other tenants
It is your landlord’s responsibility to ensure that all tenants have quiet enjoyment of their units. This means that when a disturbance is coming from another tenant in the building, your landlord is responsible for ensuring that it stops. See our page on Quiet Enjoyment for more information.
