Q&A: Condo smoker, Columbus and tobacco
What can I do about a smoker in a condo below me who smokes on her patio and pollutes the air on my balcony and in my bedroom? What are my rights?
For help with this question we turned to Richard White, a licensed community association manager in Florida whose column appears monthly in the Times. He writes:
"The answer is not a simple statement or solution. What I have suggested in the past is that the owner of the unit above or below the smoker write letters to the board and the smoker. If the smoker is a renter, then the letter should be addressed to the apartment owner as well.
