HDB RESIDENT KEEPS GETTING SMOKE IN HER HOME DUE TO NEIGHBOUR SMOKING AT THEIR YARD

I live in an apartment whereby a common space (not sure how best to describe it) exist across two adjacent blocks.

The space kinda resemble a wind channel because the two blocks fully surrounds it and only way for air to leave this channel, is through the top end of this channel aka. the top floors of the blocks.

Someone/some neighbours who resides in the two blocks I am in, are chronic smokers, and he/she/they smoke at their service yard, which has windows opening to the air channel mentioned above.

What happens whenever they smoke, is that the smoke that gets puffed out, is trapped in the air channel. When my yard windows are opened, the “stagnant” smoke gets into my house, into my family laundry (left to dry at the yard) and the kitchen (beside the service yard).

My family are non-smokers thus keep our yard windows closed pretty much at all times.

Just curious if anyone has been in similar situations and managed to get a successful resolution eventually (or silently suck thumb)?

Like to end with that I respect that smokers have their rights to puff, especially in their own homes. It just irks me when their decision to smoke at home causes inconvenience to my family.

Netizens’ comments

  • I heard people rarely settle disputes with smokers. As a smoker myself, I’d appreciate it if my neighbours would go up to me and tell me that I should smoke elsewhere as it affects their house. I’d instantly just smoke at the ground floor instead further from homes.
    • Problem is I don’t even know which household.. same thing happens after I post message in group chat
