Is smoking allowed on the balcony?

Smoking on the balcony can be disturbing for your closest neighbours, but it is not illegal. You are allowed to smoke on your balcony, but not in a way that disturbs your neighbours. This means that you must make sure that the smoke does not cause any disturbances, such as enter a neighbour’s apartment. As a neighbour, you simply have to accept that smoking from the balcony is normal when you live in an apartment building.

Is there a difference between smoking from a balcony in a condominium and a rental apartment?

No, the rules regarding smoking on the balcony are the same for both condominiums and rental apartments. It is allowed, but you need to respect your neighbours and make sure to bother them as little as possible. According to the law, it is not possible to prohibit smoking on the balcony.

Smoking is a common cause of conflict

Smoking from the balcony is often causing conflicts among neighbours. If you have a neighbour who smokes and the smoke enters your apartment, the best is to knock on the neighbour's door and discuss the problem. Hopefully your neighbour understands your concern and wants to help to improve the situation. If you get smoke in your apartment even when windows and doors are closed, you can either contact your landlord or condominium association to check insulation and ventilation.

There is no law that regulates smoking on the balcony. However, you should be respectful to your neighbours if you smoke on the balcony.

There is nothing in the law that prohibits smoking on the balcony, but you are not allowed to smoke in a way that disturbs the neighbours. However, read the lease contract carefully to ensure that the landlord has not added a smoking ban in the contract.

You are not allowed to smoke to such an extent and in a way that disturbs the neighbours.

If the landlord has written in the lease contract that smoking is not allowed on the balcony, you could theoretically be evicted. However, it is unclear how a court would rule in such a case because smoking on the balcony is not regulated by law.
