屋所不谈:我们需要对付恶邻居的法令!

  如今网络发达,网上有大量资讯、指南、文章、工具和清单助您选购梦想家园。尽管如此,在做购买决定前,还是建议您亲身去了解想要购置目标产业的细节,例如,经常被忽略的邻居素质。 在一些情况下,特别是购买新开发的项目,邻居是谁根本无从考察,唯有在新居入伙后才能揭晓住在你隔壁的到底是恶邻居还是好邻居。 一个恶邻居可能对你的生活造成巨大的困扰——平日的喧闹或凌晨聚会、不断吠叫的狗、来自隔壁猫咪的猫屎等琐碎但恼人的事情,都会打扰您和社区平静的日常生活。 目前法律框架无法对付恶邻居 依据目前的法律,邻居造成的麻烦可归为“滋扰”,属侵权行为。 在所有沟通手段和方式,如与他们和平谈判、向相关部门投诉和向警方申报等,都无济于事的情况下,最后的办法就是进行法律诉讼。 不过,并非人人愿意为这些琐碎事情向法庭提告,因为律师费昂贵且诉讼过程耗时。 因此,我们认为,政府需要立法干预,解决恶邻居造成的社会问题。 我们需要一套能以快速、低成本且有效的方式解决社区纠纷的法令。这这方面,我们可以参考新加坡《 2015年社区纠纷解决法》(简称新加坡CDRA)。 “邻居”的定义 若马来西亚要拟议相关新法令,应该参考新加坡CDRA,包含一些条例,例如,将该法令的适用范围局限在住宅产业上(新加坡CDRA适用于所有的“居住地”)。 此外,值得注意的是,新加坡CDRA中对“邻居”一词的诠释,是指与你居住在同一建筑物中,或者距离你的居住处100米内的住户,但不包括居住在同一单位内的人。 干扰(滋扰) 一般来说,定义滋扰侵权行为须先证明,是邻居的作为或不作为影响了邻居使用居住处的自由和乐趣。为了更好地说明,新加坡CDRA列出了10个邻居干扰(不详尽)的示例,即: 1.
