Here is a question I would love to know the answer to…is barbequing on your balcony allowed? Now I have seen others in my complex use barbeques of all different shapes and sizes and I haven”t noticed anything in my leasing terms about BBQs being prohibited. But if you can”t even put a clothes horse out on your balcony nowadays would I really be allow … to cook my dinner out there?
There are arguments against barbequing on balconies and in many apartment and condo developments in the US and Australia barbequing on balconies is banned. One of the main reasons is that since you could be cooking using charcoal or propane it really is a potential fire hazard.
At few other not life threaten reasons as to why you might not be allowed to barbeque on your balcony is that the smoke (and the smell) from you BBQ could and most likely would waft from your balcony to balconies of other apartments above and below yours, which I suppose could be a nuisance. Now we get very few sunny days here and I wonder are there any actual rules / laws to say we can”t BBQ on our balconies?
