Hey John, my condo wants to go 100% SMOKE FREE. The way it reads is that smoking INSIDE your condo will now be considered a violation. Right now there is a more sensible rule which says no smoking in all common areas, pool, etc. Basically this is a reaction to a renter who was in the complex and caused some problems. So now they are going for the nuclear option. Is there anything I can do to scare these people off? Can I not be "grandfathered"? Can I make them prove I am harming someone, as we have no common hallways or entrances or any connected entrances or exits. Can I sue if the vote goes through? I would appreciate any advice from anyone. Thanks

The Nazis are at it again, huh? They can kiss your okole, keep smoking. Regardless of what they say, they can only prohibit smoking in the common areas, not inside your condo.

John, thanks for the quick reply. I would really like to hear from someone who has firsthand knowledge ,ie. their condo went smoke free. I need to know if I am on firm legal ground if I tell these guys to kiss my ass. I trust you, but I need to verify. Thanks again for your input. Kimmer

You will not find a condo that went smoke free here. There are some condos where smoking is prohibited in the common areas, and I know of one where that includes the lanai too, but that's about it. (The smoke free lanai is still a legal question, since the lanai is either part of your unit or a limited common area used only by you, so the Judge will decide if they can make it smoke free.) You can call any real estate attorney, they will tell you what you do inside your condo is not the business of the AOAO as long as the activity is not illegal.
PS. What condo complex are you in?

Isn't the Native American's right protected by law? Didn't they use smoke signals?!
