Singapore: Almost 80 sets of neighbours went all the way to the court to settle their squabbles, in the first 10 months since the State Courts established tribunals to resolve such disputes.
Of the 79 cases seen by the Community Disputes Resolution Tribunals (CDRT) from October 2015 to July 31 this year, most – 70 per cent – involved claims of “excessive noise”.
Littering and “interfering with moveable property” were seen in 25 per cent of cases respectively, said the State Courts on Friday (Sept 23). There can be more than one cause of dispute in each claim filed.
