A person is entitled to quiet enjoyment of his or property under the law. Of course, this right has to be balanced against the right of your neighbour to engage in his or her own activities as well. Thus, it is only if the noise pollution level of your neighbour is beyond tolerable levels that you are entitled to seek recourse. What may constitute a tolerable level depends on the duration, frequency and loudness of the noise produced by your neighbour. If there is sufficient cause for action, you may seek mediation in the first instance through the Community Mediation Centre (http://www.cmc.gov.sg/). If that fails, you may wish to consider legal action, including instituting an action against your neighbour for private nuisance and/or harassment.
