Smoker next door

We recently moved into a condo, we have a wonderful deck that we love sitting on as much as possible, however, our neighbors deck is about 10 feet from ours and they are heAvy smokers. The smoke is ruining our time outside, any suggestions? I know I can’t ask them not to smoke, I put out a fan but it’s doing very little.
Looking for any solutions,
Thanks.

Could you relocate to the front?

Can you put up some sort of living plant wall that would Block it? Perhaps something with plastic, or some sort of sheeting between you?

Can you build a divider?

Buy a much larger fan.

How about some heavy duty fan? Maybe not commercial grade but close. I’d spend couple hundred dollars and blow their smoke out/back towards them. Another thought is installing plexiglass on that side of balcony to create a barrier.

If they ask, I’d would say I’m allergic to cigarette smoke. Maybe they’ll get the point.

Edit: 2 posts before me were thinking same ideas. I would decide between one of them

You are being deprived of peaceable enjoyment. You could ask the condo association for advice.

Do the condo rules say anything about smoking on the deck or on the property more broadly? You could also discuss with a lawyer - https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/cr ... story.html

+1 for buying a quality fan. You should be able to find a spec for air flow and find a good one for the price and how much air it can blow.

Those $10 box fans at Walmart will do nothing.

And in some places, it isn't tobacco...

Your fan is likely not moving enough airflow, perhaps you should try one of these: https://www.thefirestore.com/store/cate ... /orderby/9 :beer

I would check the condo rules, and if there is nothing, have a talk with the condo board. If they are no help, you have to consider moving, I don't see another solution. On further thought, you might ask the neighbors if they plan to move soon. If they do, you don't have to unless they sell to smokers.

It's not just the annoyance, you have a health risk from second hand smoke.

I seriously doubt plexiglass or plants will help. Their whole condo must reek of smoke, including the deck. These places have to be painted with shellac-based paints to get rid of that smell, so no way it is going away while they live there.

One could join the board. Or partition the board.

I have had a similar experience. One person at every annual meeting puts forward a building wide smoking ban. We take up the resolution. After 3 months we find 2 people are for and 2 people are against so it gets dropped. If you are going to ask for a smoking ban - which is a valid thing - organize the building. Spend time. Just don't complain. Do.

Big Ass Fans makes some really big fans, like 8ft tall. Pretty sure you could make their life miserable if you wanted.

A few years ago, a couple successfully sued the owners of the house next door (and I am talking about detached) because of their smoking. The judge ruled the smokers must make accommodations to avoid bothering the neighbors. I believe this was in California. I have no idea what the end result of this was.

The problem with those industrial sized fans will be the noise.

I had this situation. I had two patios. I had smokers on both sides. One neighbor's patio was littered with cigarette butts. They smoked constantly. I moved.

When we took a cruise to Alaska we had a balcony. The air was pristine and the scenery spectacular. On the adjacent balcony was a cigar smoker. Instead of sitting on the balcony in our robes, we dressed and went up on deck.

Not much else you can do. Smokers smoke.

Ask them politely to smoke somewhere else because you're allergic to tobacco smoke.

If this doesn't work, bring it up with your HOA people and see what they suggest. If they can't do anything then move.

We live in a bottom floor apartment. We have heel stompers above us we've been dealing with for a year and the apartment manager cannot do much with heel stompers. Our lease is up next month and we're moving to a townhouse. We're excited.

We feel bad for the next tenants. We're hoping the next tenants will be less forgiving and give the upstair heel stompers grief.

Is this a location where a lot of people smoke, or is smoking an anomaly there?

There may also be an applicable existing rule that could be enforced, if the board were wont to enforce it. It's worth reading the rules.

Do you rent or own? Do they rent or own? Have you tried, nicely, to talk to the neighbor?

How long has the neighbor lived there? You may not get anywhere if the neighbor is, for example, a board member. Or has friends on the board. You're kind of at a disadvantage because you're the newbie, and they've presumably been there awhile.

I used to live in a townhouse next to a chain smoker where the smoke would seep through our walls. I used to half jokingly tell my wife that he probably won't be around much longer, also because he was older and had a chronic bad cough. We ended up moving after 8 years and fast forward another 9 years on top of that and the guy is still alive and kicking.

The condo CC&Rs may address smoking but even if they do the HOA probably can't do much more than send a warning note. If the smoker has no regard for others it won't do much good.

Otherwise unfortunately your choice is to move. I don't see a giant fan being particularly effective.

A lot of smokers always smoke outside. Safer and keeps their house less smelly or it's the fellow residents requirements. In a condo the deck is probably the only reasonable option.

This is highly dependent on local laws. Our board has the power to ban all smoking on the property. Inside, on the deck, in the common areas, etc.

Now, we have not. One of the reasons why I am against this is that then we would have to enforce this, I would rather not have a limp rule on the books or become the police. But I know of boards in our state that have.

i feel your pain. we had this issue 8 years ago. fortunately we lived in an apartment and moved 7 years ago. can you guess why?

our curren next door neighbor occasionally smokes a cigar, so we go in during those times and/or light incense if we want to stay outside at those times.

this is one of the benefits of renting, it is much easier to move.

i find neighbors to be a reason that if I was going to own a home it would have to have significant land between properties.

fences make good neighbors. it's unfortunate to think that way but alas, civility is dead. also the notion of freedom is lost on most. people think they can do whatever they want. truth is you have have the right to do what you want provided you're not infringing upon my rights. I look at others blowing second hand smoke (which some studies have shown to be more harmful than first hand smoke) to be an infringement upon my rights.
“He said, ‘Your right to throw a punch stops where my nose begins,'” said Chapman. “I think that’s very apropos for the smoking issue.”

Unless there's something in the condo rules, you can't do much. A fan big enough to make any difference would be intolerably loud. No smoker I've ever known would respond favorably to a neighbor asking him not to smoke on his own property.

Interesting. I didn’t know this was possible.

I’d like a condo in the future, and the OP is describing my nightmare. Maybe there are 100% smokeless condos I could look for.

One possible temporary solution is to time your time outdoors to coincide with when your neighbors are indoors. Not ideal, because you have no control over when they are outside, and you both likely would prefer to be out at the nicest time of day, etc.

Even in a detached house with no smokers nearby, it's an issue. I can be in my yard/on my deck whenever I want. But if my neighbor(s) are mowing their lawns, leaf blowing, weed whacking, revving their motorcycles in their driveways, playing loud music, talking loudly with a friend or on a cell phone, etc, I often just decide to pick a different time to enjoy the yard when it is quieter and/or there is less machine exhaust. And when it is truly peaceful out there, I enjoy it and don't take it for granted, since I've experienced the opposite.

You have to have quite a bit of space between you and neighbors to really be unaffected by their activities, whether it's smoking or other things. So if you decide to "just move" choose your new location carefully and consider that you may still have issues with neighbors making outdoor space less enjoyable than you would like.

If you want to be outside at the same time as your smoking neighbors, it may be worthwhile to try various fan options. How helpful that would be would depend on wind direction and other factors, but worth a try. As is discussing it with the neighbor - maybe they'd be willing to make adjustments, maybe not. Maybe the fan trials will help the topic come to the fore.

When you live in close proximity to others, one needs to be a more tolerant individual. I lived for years in various apartment buildings with those who smoked next door, people doing the River dance upstairs, people next to my bedroom who liked to play their music loud when they came off second shift at 2 am in the morning, others who always thought their newspaper and packages misprinted with my name and address were always being delivered to my door and taking them before I could. I finally decided life is too short and I'm not that tolerant and moved to buying houses on large multiacre lots. I've never been happier.

Agreed. We have dogs that bark occasionally (not nuisance barkers by any means, but they might still annoy those who'd prefer zero barking). But I don't make frequent use of a very loud gas powered leaf blower that spews smoke. As neighbors, we put up with these annoyances from each other, as best as we can, and hope that it remains tolerable for all.

We had a prolonged power outage a while back, and the noise from the neighbors' generator was bad enough (24/7 for days on end) that I was sorely tempted to buy them a newer quieter model before even considering getting one for ourselves. We managed through the outage with no generator, but had to keep our windows closed due to noise and exhaust from the neighbors' generator.

The OP has my sympathy, as I would find nearby smoking neighbors a big challenge, myself.
