I just moved into a new apartment in Austin TX?

there is no cell phone service in the apartment, and I was just wondering if a 911 call will go through without any service

Yes, if you have the “bars”; Try calling a local number, and see if it goes through .

Lizzie asks…

My girlfriend & I live in an apartment in Austin, Tx. Is there a way out of the lease? Please read below…?

Basically we resigned the lease and RIGHT after we did so, issues became apparent. There are two neighbors that are continuously noisy after ten. One has already stopped, but after much fighting.

The second live across from us. I went over there, asked them politely (around 11 pm) to keep it down, and I was verbally assaulted. I have since written several letters to the apartment, have video footage of their voices coming through our closed bedroom window. In addition, the only girl who seems willing to help me at the office, says they did pull a police report filed on them when I first called the authorities.

My arsenal: a police report, multiple letters, a video (more to come I am sure), and the fact that the office says they have spoken to her but there is nothing they can really do.
The City of Austin will not file reports every time they come out for noise, and understandably as they get many on the night shift, so I only have one. I also know that if I can leave, it won’t be because the apartment failed to do anything – howver…

***the attorney general has made it clear that renters have a right to quiet and comfortable living. What constitutes the crumbling of that peace?***

What can we do, if anything, to leave?
lace and anp, thank you for the insights. i already had the office start signing letters i handed them, but will try to get copies as well.

anp, the consultation is a good idea. one i should have thought of already. thank you guys again!

Administrator answers:

I am not sure of the exact legal terminology but you are entitled to a peaceful occupation of the premises. Take the matter to a small claims court. The judge will decide. Do bear in mind that if you lose you will not only have to continue paying the rent but also your landlord’s court costs. I would suggest that you look at prior landlord/tenant disputes. The records are freely available. Also, you could do a free consultation with an attorney who specializes in landlord/tenant disputes and get his/her opinion before you go to court.

Mark asks…

Where are there great apartments with great water or green views in austin tx?

I need to relocate to austin tx and i’m from the country. I need some apartments that are inexpenisve and very good quality and have awesome views. Can anyone help me out please?

Administrator answers:

Go over to the northwest part of austin – the hill country. Its gorgous. There are several apartments built on hillsides that must have amazing veiws. Lake Travis is in this area as well. Set yourself up with an apartment locator and tell them what you want. They will take you around for free. Just make sure they listen to you and not just take you to places that pay them the most commission.
