We bought a condo for my daugher and her husband who are both mentally ill. They smoke and the reason we bought this condo was that there were no HOA
rules against smoking per se. They have a patio and were smoking there but there were complaints so they now smoke only in their condo with an air purifier going. But we just received a letter from the association
complaining about odors emanating from their condo. Someone near them must be complaining. How can I respond--it seems like if they don't specifically ban smoking that they can't ask them to stop. Barbara
JA: Because real estate
law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?
Customer: it's in California (San Diego)
JA: Has any paperwork been filed?
Customer: We've received two letters with heading "Violation Response". After the first one, I told my daughter and her husband to only smoke in doors and not to use the patio. But now we've gotten a second " Violation Response" because the smoke from indoors must be getting out the door or something.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: I would like them to stop smoking altogether but when you're mentally ill it seems to help their symptoms and the side effects of medication so though they've tried they haven't been able to stop. How much will this cost?
