RESIDENT SMOKES AT HIS HDB BALCONY, NEIGHBOURS HAVE TO ALWAY SHUT THEIR WINDOWS

What would you do if your neighbour smokes at his balcony all the time?

I asked this in my BTO chat and to my horror up to 6 families have all their windows shut to accomodate and live in stuffy conditions only to allow their smoking neighbour the ability to smoke in his own home.

I’ve always felt that in SG, you are not really a king of your own property. If you make too much noise at midnight, too frequently, you can get sued for private nuisance.

Likewise, if you decide to grow plants in your house till its an eyesore and grows outta your window, the TC will come chop your plants away. Sadly, for ciggs which are way more harmful than plants and music, its supposedly ok.

How would any of you deal w a neighbour who smokes like a chimney?

Edit: have gone down a few times and pressed the doorbell but left standing there. Not keen to talk somehow.

Also all 6 families i polled in my bto telegram all have different smoking neighbours hahaha.

Netizen’s comments

Is the smoking unit above or below you? Above then nothing can be done from your side. Maybe burn some incense.

If they are below you, a lot of things you can do. Spray insecticide to kill mosquitos and insects, use Mr Muscle Bleach to clean your wall, wash your windows, do jumping jacks to keep fit every now and then, aim your subwoofers downwards and blast some death metal while you are at work or out for dinner.

Morale of the story is don’t have bad relationships with neighbors who live directly above you. They can make your life a living hell.
