Kicked out of an apartment

A friend of mine is being kicked out of her apartment for noise issues. Her son is Autistic and has raging fits. The apartment has 24/7 quiet hours because it is mostly shift workers. She has been in the same apartment for years. Now there is new management and they are enforcing the quiet hours. Everyone is telling her to sue. They said that her son falls under the Americans with Disabilities Act. However, I think they are being more than fair here. They are offering her an apartment in a sister complex that is a mile down the road. It is more child friendly. They are transferring the deposit, and paying for a moving company. I see no reason here to sue. She is on the fence.

She is lucky they are working with her. She should take what they offer and move.

Sounds like management has come to a very happy medium here. Why would there be a problem with that compromise?

They are going way above board to help her out. Most places, when they kick you out, they just kick you out. They don't bother offering you a place somewhere else, much less offter to transfer your deposits and pay for the moving company.   Can she afford to move on her own? Find a new place, pay new deposits, pay for movers?  If not, she needs to take the deal.

If they just threw her on the street, I'd say sue, but they are being very accommodating to her.

I can see why she'd be upset, embarrassed, and just generally feel "shit on" though.

I think they are doing enough.

They are trying to work with her and give her somewhere more comfortable and yet respect the ppl sleeping all day. I don't see anything wrong with this. Why would she sue? Is the new apartment crappy or put of the school district?

Hmm, I think you're right. If they were just booting her with no place to go, I'd definitely sue. But it seems they are setting her up well with a new place and covering the charges... I think she should take the opportunity. Sucks, though :(

They are being very generous.  She should take their offer.

 I have heard his rages.  You can hear them in the parking lot.  In a place with mostly shift workers I can see why their are complaints.  She lived there before he was born.  So it was fine then.  The rages started within the last six months.
