Condo Owners Prohibited from Smoking on Balcony

Article Summary: 

In this blog post, the author discusses a recent case in which the Ontario Superior Court ruled that a condominium corporation had the authority to prohibit smoking on a unit owner's balcony. The court found that the corporation's bylaw prohibiting smoking on balconies was valid and reasonable, and did not constitute a breach of the owner's right to quiet enjoyment. The author notes that smoking on balconies can cause problems for other residents and can damage the property, and suggests that condominium corporations may wish to consider implementing similar restrictions.
