kamiann917, Renter in Indian Trail, NC

Thinking of moving to the area but I have a special needs child. Would this be a problem in a townhouse? She can be quite loud.

Good Evening,

I also have a special needs child so I understand some of your concerns. I would suggest a end unit and I do know of a few that are available now in the Fort Mill area. What area are you looking to move to? Please feel free to use my website to aid in your search. Contact me with your criteria and I will put you on an alert and let you be one of the first to know what becomes available.

Hi Kamiann,
It's sounds like you are a very thoughtful person to worry about bothering your neighbors. ALL children are loud and quite frankly I have had plenty of neighbors in the past who could have cared less. It sounds like you would be a great neighbor to have. The laws here in NC are very protective for special needs and discrimination is not allowed based on a persons handicap!
I live in Ballantyne and would love to help you find the right fit . Perhaps an end unit and also picking a development with amenities like a pool or a playground would also be beneficial to you.

The laws are very protective in North Carolina for special needs children. Discrimination because of one persons handicap is not allowed at all. It is a very delicate situation that people walk with special needs children. (My sister has twins that are so I know the feeling). Police and other people that may be called because as you said she is sometimes quite loud have a delicate line to walk because she can not control herself....

I have lived in townhomes before and thought I agree the walls at times seem paper thin it is really up to the neighbor to be neighborly. I would talk to the neighbor on each side of you when you move in and explain your situation to them and apologize up front for any loud noise that may be disturbing to them. They at least now would know why and you probably will not have another issue with it again.

People get used to things. I lived near the train tracks for a while and after a little while got so used to the train I did not even hear it coming anymore...So I would not worry to much about it. If I can help you in your search for a town home please let me know. I understand where you are concerned and would be happy to help you in your search....

Hi Kamiann- North Carolina has pretty strict laws that protect Special needs children and the disabled from discrimination. Townhomes and condos have a set of bylaws, ordinances etc. that residents must abide by. Perhaps you would need to choose a unit on the first floor or at the end of the building or something of that sort. Also depending where you are in Indian trail you can find single family homes within the price range( or just as affordable) as some of the townhomes especially once you add the cost of homeowners dues, in a townhome. We have some really nice inventory on brand new homes in this area right now as well.

Give me a call and I would love to work with you to find exactly what you need for you and your family.
