I am in a 2 year contract at a rental duplex located on a cul-de-sac. There are 8 -10 units on the street managed by the same property manager. Out of all the units there is 1 family that has lived there for 8+ years with 2 kids who are nuiances to the neighborhood. I have notified the property manager of the problems Ive had with these neighbors over the past 2 years (my lease is up in June), the police have become involved, but the problem neighbor continues to harass me.

The landlord tells me in an email that this neighbor is an "asset to the neighborhood and is the first one to step up if there ever is a problem". So needless to say since the problem neighbor is the property mangers "buddy" nothing has been done.

One family has moved out of the neighborhood to get away from them. Another family is ready to move and they haven't lived on our block a year, to get away from them. I am trying to leave, and financially hoping I can do it.

Should I contact the property managers business he is contracted by to complain?
Is there a state agency that helps in these situations?

This problem neighbor needs to go. Period.

Who owns the building? The property manager or a larger entity?
Go to the buildings owners.

Contact the property owner and let them know about the problems. If the property manager is also the owner you won't get anywhere, but if the owner contracts to the property manager and owns all of the duplex's in question, they're going to want answers. Last thing they want is tenants moving out, whereas the management company could care less either way as long as someone is in there most of the year.

He is the property manager/landlord. He's contracted by a company to manage these properties. I've contacted the landlord again today about an issue with the neighbor and he is going to talk with him again about leaving me alone. One more incident with this neighbor and I will be contacting the managment company.
I just don't want to be retaliated against via the landlord if I do so. Because I may not be able to move when I want due to finances.

Thank you for your input!! And I too was thinking the same thing of contacting the management.
