  • disruption of order (Philippines)

    Is there a law in the Philippines that would support my complaint against a music bar established inside residential area which causes disturbance in sleep among the residents due to loud music and noise from workers and customers? Is it possible to demand that it should be sound-proofed to avoid this problem? Thanks!

    The action by your neighbor is covered by law of Tort under Nuisance. In a residential area, the person expects peace and if the music sounds keep on going on whole day it will amount to nuisance and hence you can file for injuction against your neighbor for either stopping his music bar or to reduce the sound to a level within the permissible level that it does not disturb other neighbors. A person's right to enjoyment of his property cannot be extended to such an extent that it infringes upon the rights of others.

      There should not be an ordinance that allows a BAR of all things to establish as a business inside the parameters of a residential neighborhood. Find out for sure if it is zoned as residential. This type of business being in a residential neighborhood is unheard of. Perhaps it's zoned for mixed use.

      You can complain, but if the business is legitimate, you are SOL.
