Dear Mister Condo,
Can neighbors on my floor leave their doors open to the community hallway, which I must pass often? I do not know the purpose if it is to try to receive free A/C or to watch neighbors walk past. It is uncomfortable for women on the floor.
Mister Condo replies:
G.K., that is certainly an unusual and potentially uncomfortable situation for all involved. I am not aware of any typical rule or regulation that would require owners to keep their doors closed but you could certainly petition the Board to pass such a rule. I would cite the safety factor for yourself and other owners who are forced to use the common entrance. You have the right to feel safe and comfortable in your own unit. That right should extend to the common areas as well. All the best!
