Noisy lovemaking is no cause for eviction so long as it's done in the daytime, a Swedish landlord said Thursday.
The Tunabyggen housing company in Borlaenge, 137 miles northwest of Stockholm, made the decision after the neighbors of one amorous couple complained about their afternoon delights.

But the company, which runs the block of apartments, said lovemaking is part of normal family life and not grounds for eviction.

Indeed, it's the law. Under the Swedish Housing Act, neighbors are not to be disturbed by loud noises be it music, television or love making in the evening. But that law also guarantees the right of tenants to a normal family life, too.

Tunabyggen's marketing director Lena Lundberg said the complaint about the lovemaking was akin to that of a family with noisy children whose crying could disturb the neighbors.

The complaint, which was filed this week, was thrown out, she added, because the noise wasn't at night.
