    Haha! I have *never* lived in an apartment block where everyone lives peacefully without impacting someone else. She says as she listens to the 4 hour piano practice upstairs, still tired from listening to some other neighbours shout across the whole apartment to each other last night after midnight, and listening to their shuddering and squealing pipes as they have a shower again after midnight every single night. Some else was smoking down in the car port area and got ash all over and put burn marks in DS's pusher. You can't ban everything, some things you just have to tolerate. If the neighbours upstairs work really late and dont get home till midnight of course they're entitled to have a shower when they get home, just as the woman 2 doors down is entitled to sit out on her own balcony and enjoy a smoke and a drink.

    I would LOVE a smoking ban! Our old place (apartment) was shocking!

    FL. I agree with your points. I haven't lived in a place where the likes of those things happen. If I have had a problem with noisy neighbours etc. I either call the onsite manager or write to the body corporate.
    I abide by rules so what I do doesn't impact others and I just expect others to do the same. I guess it's common courtesy hey? Certain things are easily avoidable though... Showers/crying babies/shift workers etc are all unavoidable.
    But noise of parties and smoking outside are avoidable.
    Especially worse when neighbours on right on top of each other.
    Well just my thoughts!

    I lived in a multi owned flat, my neighbours talked to loudly and I could here every single word they we're saying, often I struggled to fall asleep as they we're talking to loudly and impacting on my ability to live 'peacefully'

    Should we ban talking while we are at it?

    What about loud cars? Can we ban them too? Or people who sware can't rent their either after all I don't want to hear others swearing
    ...

    Get my point?

    If the government was to bring in rehabilitation centers like drug addicts get and a blanket wide smoking ban (making it illegal) then I would support this but if someone is doing something LEGAL in their own residence then no I dont support it.


    The government will NEVER make smoking illegal, nor offer rehab centers they make billions of peoples legal addiction

    Your property you should be able to do what you want with it. There are worse Things in the world than people smoking on Their OWN balconies. For goodness sakes grow up Australia.

    While we are at it why don't we ban bbq's on balconies (I hate the smell). Hanging washing in balconies (looks messy). Going out on the balcony altogether (it's too noisy for people who don't have kids).

    Seriously!

    Nemmi... I think it's common courtesy. I've had neighbours who talk loudly on mobile phones right outside my place. It's annoying... I'm not banning that. But if they do it late at night I would complain to body corporate. Though I might quietly ask them first to be more considerate.
    I guess smoking is a different thing in that it can affect your health. Especially if you have respiratory problems.
    The other things you said, like loud cars are just common courtesy to your neighbours. If its late, drive slowly and don't idle your car outside someone's place. Just putting others before yourself. That's all.
    Anyway... It's getting a bit off topic now. Haha.
