Long story short- we moved into a duplex in October. One of my 18 month old twins has had a hard time adjusting and often has a crying spell in the middle of the night. The very first week we were here, the neighbors beat on the wall and called the landlord on us. (they have no kids, ones a teacher the other is a youth pastor)
Well the landlord told us there was a noise clause in our lease which of course... I thought meant no loud music, parties- etc. Certainly did I not think it included a CRYING BABY!
Several times since then, the neighbors beat on the wall when he has a crying spell. The thing is, its not even that loud. If they can hear him (which clearly they can) it's not very loud because its through 3 wooden doors, and several walls. They BEAT on the wall and it sends chills down my spine- I'm SO afraid they are going to get us evicted.

Have you gone over and talked with your neighbors? Kill them with kindness if you have too. You can also file a complaint against them for "banging" on the walls....that should be a "noise" issue also. I have never heard of someone being evicted due to a crying baby. You have no control over the issue and you are doing all you can. I would check into your state laws and what landlords can and can't do and what constitutes violating the "noise clause." I would think if he tried to evict you and it went to court a judge would laugh him out of the court room. What a jerk! Both your landlord and neighbor. I can't believe your neighbor is a youth pastor of all things! He works with kids!!
