Dear Mr Koh

Inconsiderate pounding heart at this hour.



We refer to your feedback on noise nuisance.

Upon receiving your feedback, our Technical Officer interviewed your neighbors above. As we live in an environment where various households are in close proximity to one another we seek their understanding to be more considerate and conversely, more tolerant to their neighbors.

Our Officer could not detect the unit that is rearing more than 1 dog during the inspection.

We hope that the situation improves for you and your family.Dear Mr Koh

things nv improved......, so i sent a friendly email to the officer

Dear Wee Lian,

It has been half a year since the last feedback was sent and to-date, the situation has not improved at all. On the contrary, it had gotten worst, the noise created by the neighbour upstairs was the worst during the school hol...idays when children running from morning till way past midnight and this has certainly disrupt my family's rest. I think we have been trying to be very tolerant here (if you noticed I have not sent any more mails since the last time you replied me). It would be very unfair for me if I have to keep tolerating and the situation worsened to the point that we are having a severe lack of rest, especially during the weekends. Everyone in this block paid the same amount of Conservancy bills, the same property tax and what not, but why am I subjected to such acts of inconsideration? I wasn't even asking for alot, all I want was just some peace we can enjoy after a hard day's work.......

My wife and I are certainly more willing than not to tolerate but we really hope the noise can be kept to a minimal after 10:30pm, we sincerely implore HDB to interview the neighbour upstairs and to get them to be more considerate.
The noise generated from the children and their dog has really been giving us endless headache and we can't move out of this home since we need to fulfill the MOP.

P/S: The neighbour living opposite me has 4 kids and they don't come close to the one upstairs in terms of noise level. If you would like to have a feel of the inconsiderate acts, I welcome you to stay at my place for 2 days, with free lodging and free food thrown in for good measure.
in my desperation, i sent an email to AVA
Hi there,

As I have not received any feedback from HDB on the incessant barking from the dog living above, I hope this is the right avenue I can approach. I'm really at my wits' end, putting up with the barking from the dog. This morning was the last straw when I was woken up by the barking and could not get back to sleep. I implore AVA to help us do something about this problem as my wife and I are having insufficient rest and culminated in us having migraines or taking medical leave from work.

My wife and my work have been affected as a result and we hope something can be done to the dog above. Thank you.
immediately, AVA took action and paid the neighbour a visit and gave a verbal warning. The officer called me n ask me to call him on his mobile if things nv improve. however, the situation has a new twist, dog had kinda bark within bearable limits, but their kids are taking over n i cant call AVA to put their kids to sleep ....

very difficult to record the noise created by the kids as the recordings sounded muffled and nothing compared to what me n my wife are experiencing. we managed to record the dog's singing though. this is only the more bearable one, will try to post the sound recordings taken with my iphone soon.

The Son of a bit*h run almost anytime of the day.
Yes what i did is use ear plug and curse them everyday.
Really hope the whole family die


But the thing is, why their problem have become my problem?
Before they move in everything is fine.
I dont hate them, i just want them to die
Everyday the only thing i was hopping was the kid cross the road and got run down by a big bus together with the CB father.
Or he fell off his flat and die.

got balls curse directly to them lah.
Don't be pus5y hiding behind keyboard kpkb in forum

Hi there, I have been having issues with my neighbours upstairs and I am really fed up. They basically make noise at night, stomping and dropping things and moving furniture late into the night.

It has been 2+ freakin years and there has been no proper resolution.

I have created a Facebook page and I hope all of you on this thread can help like the page.

http://www.facebook.com/SingaporeNoisyNeighbours

By clicking 'like' it does not necessarily mean that you have a neighbour problem. It simply means that you support the need for a law to protect residents in Singapore from such issues.

We are a first world country but with seemingly third world grace, and it is surprising that we can be banning chewing gum, creating smoking corners and catching vehicles with modified exhausts because they are deemed 'dangerous' but we cannot protect ourselves from inconsiderate neighbours in our densely packed environment.

Surely there must be a way. Why doesn't HDB make it known in news or sth that this is ongoing issue and neighbors need to be well educated?

How do u resolve ur issues

Is it the design of HDB flats being too closely packed poor noise insulation that is also part of the problem? Also coolie genes is part of the problem that one without doubt...

Hi, we're facing a extreme confused situation. We're staying in this new bto flat for almost 3 yrs & we're staying to TOP floor. Been hearing strange noise for more than 2+yrs times. Those noise are humming+knocking, sound like humm..... then click knock. It started every evening time to late 1 to 2am then stop, started again around 4am until 7-8 morning. Sometime we can hear it at the lift area now then discover that noise are actually from lift itself. But it's weird that the sounds can be heard although we're away from lift area and volume is adjustable, something softer something louder, like someone is controlling it. Strange part is while closing all our doors and windows, the noise is louder than outside. We're suspected my downstair neighbor is the cause of those noise, bcos while we flash toilet in the midnight after a while the noise started again. We even heard stomping and dropping things totally was like in our unit but we're all sitting in the sofa watching TV, remind you all again, we are living in TOP floor. Getting more weird is this few weeks, we can hear soft bass knocking sound surrounding our living and bedrooms whole days and nights, and again the sounds is adjustable. My question is if it's from my downstair neighbor, how will they able to do that? Are they facing loudspeaker to us? Are they not affected? They're like very 'careful' neighbor, avoiding and hiding, scare someone will complain against them. Anyone can help to solve?
