What to do if I share a common wall with the president of my condo association and I have received 2 violations for noise complaints that she has filed against me?

The complaints reference a by-law that states that any behavior that any co-owner finds to be an annoyance is a violation. Her complaints include that I close my doors to loudy, blow my nose too loudly and my dog jumps off my bed too loudly. I literally tiptoe in my house at night, carefully close my doors behind me and make visitors speak quietly. I have lived here for 2 years and have always had issues with my neighbor calling and texting me about each noise she hears over here. I even bought a new dishwasher because she complained each time I ran my old one.

I suggets that you have a face to face meeting with the president of your HOA as to your perceived bullying mandating that such stop and follow up with the meeting with a letter to her with a copy to the HOA. You might consider making complaints against the neighbor for the bullying you are receiving.

Other than the above there really is nothing else you can do at this point in time other than hire an attorney to write a cease and desist letter for you.
