ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - An Arlington couple who expected to lose their apartment after their landlord complained about the noise made by their disabled son has received a 30-day reprieve.

The Washington Post reports (https://wapo.st/1NU2GYG) Gerald E. Pierce, project manager for E.G. Reinsch Companies, told tenant advocates representing Fernando and Esmeralda Diaz that the extension was made Wednesday “in the spirit of the holiday season.”

Pierce says there is more to the story than simply a noise dispute but declined to be more specific.

Pierce says the company “would be happy to provide references” as the Diazes look for a new rental, but the family has not authorized them to do so. The family had complained that the property manager refused to provide such references, causing them to lose at least one possible apartment.
