    Next door neighbor complains about smell of cigar smoke

    My neighbor's wife makes him smoke his nightly smelly cigars on the lanai which then infiltrates my condo.  I have to close my sliders and light an incense stick due to the vile odor. While I appreciate he has the right to smoke in his own home, do I have any recourse to make him do it somewhere else?

    Condo neighbor's parking obstucts sidewalk access

    I live in a condo in Ohio. I do not have direct access to my unit. The neighbor who has the first garage pulls up to the garage and over to the lawn blocking my access to the sidewalk; making me walk down the drive to the lawn area and I need to walk on the lawn to the sidewalk to my unit. The association tells me there is no rule on how anyone parks. This has been going on for more than 6 months. I'm 65 and walk with a cane.

    Should HOA give a discount to a disabled resident

    Should an HOA give a discount to a disabled resident who does not have access to an amenity because of a disability? People who are paralyzed can use a pool if it is accessible, but what if its not? If the building is newer it is illegal that it is not accessible. It might be a reasonable accommodation under FHA (instead of retrofitting to make it accessible in an older building) to just not charge the person with the disability a fee for something they can't use. Of course if it is accessible, they should be charged the fee even if they choose not to use it. Buildings open to occupancy after March 13, 1991 need to meet full accessibility laws, but older buildings only need to modify facilities and practices within reason even if it doesn't meet current accessibility requirements. This would be for a unit with no residents that could use the facility and would also give up any right to guest use.

    My 86 year old mother has owned a condo for 10 years. Since her health is deteriorating she has asked my wife and I to move in with her. The Property Management company made us fill out an application and then rejected us because our credit score is under 700. We are not renting or purchasing, simply family members moving in with Mom.
