A: The decision of whether to sue your neighbors or your landlord depends on the specific facts of your case. It is advisable to consult with an attorney to determine who is the most likely responsible party and to assess the strength of your potential case.

Considerations When Deciding Whom to Sue

Evidence: Gather evidence to support your claims, such as police reports, witness statements, documentation of property damage, and records of communication with your neighbors or landlord.

Legal Basis: Determine the legal basis for your claims, such as theft, property damage, harassment, or breach of the implied covenant of habitability.
