Do you have to talk to neighbors in apartment living? Does keeping to yourself affect lease renewal?

    No you don't have to talk to anyone. It's nice to be friendly with your neighbors but it's not going to affect a lease renewal

    You don't "have to" talk to anyone but polite small talk in the laundry room or getting the mail is expected or people will think you're snotty.

    It never hurts to be friendly, say hello when you see them. But your neighbors do not have to become your friends.

    The more important thing is that you treat them and your apartment with respect. No loud parties. No yelling at all hours. Keep the tv and music volumes to a respectable level.

    Talking to your neighbors or not talking to your neighbors does not affect lease renewal. There's nothing wrong in keeping to yourself. When I lived in an apartment I was friendly with my neighbors, polite with my neighbors in that I would say hello, how are you etc.. but I rarely stopped to chat and only had a few neighbors that I felt the need to allow more into my life.

    You don't 'have to' talk to them, but most people find it makes for a more pleasant environment if they say at least smile and say 'Hi' when they pass someone on the stairs.

    IMO it's good to be good "fence neighbors" with everyone, "porch neighbors" with some, and "kitchen neighbors" with a very few. Of course this metaphor is about people who live in houses, not apartments, but same idea.

    The company/ office that runs the apartment complex doesn’t care who you are friends with. It doesn’t matter if you talk to your neighbors or don’t.

    no. there is nothing in your lease that says you have to interact with the other tenants.

    If you talk to your neighbors you'll be politely asked to leave
