Since February this year, residents of a Housing Development Board (HDB) flat in Clementi have complained that their neighbour’s unit is infested with rats.

The unit is in a block along Clementi Avenue 5 and is on the fourth storey.

A foul smell emanating from the unit in question has also forced all the neighbours on the same floor to keep their windows and doors shut.

According to residents there, the neighbour is somewhat of a hoarder, who has also left miscellaneous items strewn across the common corridor, an AsiaOne article reports.

One of the residents who spoke to the Chinese paper, Shin Min Daily News, said that the rats suddenly popped up in the area in February.

She also added that she has laid out rat traps with poison and has killed 27 rats to date.

“They scamper about in the corridor, no matter the time of day. They even run into my house at night. It’s so noisy that I can’t sleep in peace,” the woman said in Mandarin.

The residents claim that despite speaking to their neighbour about the rat problem, the owner has said that there were only “one or two” rats in her house.

Residents have made repeated reports to Jurong-Clementi Town Council but the issue has yet to be resolved. /TISGFollow us on Social Media
