Removing tiles

Moving into a appartment soon on the second floor, moronic previous owner put in tiles. Obviously neighbors are complaining about the noise and i dont like them, should i go about the hassle of removing them or just put another floor on top of it(with another subfloor obviously)?

      i'm not renting as thats financial waste since house prices are going up by about 5-10% each year in this area

      You havent moved in and the neighbor is b***hing about noise?
      Lay a floor over nice tile in a rental?
      Really?

      i read in some documents concerning the appartment neighbors are complaining. Dont have a pic at hand of the current situation but the tiles look a lot worse then in the picture.

      i dont like rugs, i want a PVC floor. Easy to maintain and easy to do yourself. Removing tiles on the other hand is a fricking hassle

        Vinyl flooring isn't likely to do anything for the noise levels.

        On the wrong side of the pond they refer to condominiums as apartments. Rentals would usually be 'flats' as I understand it.

        So install a PVC floor over what's there and if the neighbors dislike the results tough shit. You're going to sell the place eventually so the less you spend the better.

        Noise is apartment life. Those who desire quiet do not live in noisy areas.

          Which PVC flooring line is it that used to run the ad campaign "When your mom can't afford a single wide".

        Make sure to put that reflective foam stuff in before installing the floor.

          its required by law to add a noise cancelling underfloor. Thing is people suspect it hasn't been done with the current floor. None can proof anything though so i think i'll just throw a pvc floor + noise reducing underfloor on it.

          What's with hispanics and tile? Every Mexicans house I've ever worked at, every floor is replaced with tile. I get cleaning is a breeze and they're usually low maintenence, but shit, tiles everywhere just doesn't work

          there are no hispanics here

    Put in a cork floor if you're that worried about noise.

    Removing tile is a ton of work. Plus you have to dump all the broken tile.

    But if you do it, put in some quiet LVP after
