He is objecting to my partner smoking on our balcony, saying it permeates into the room, then out of closed doors and windows into a communal area.

I'd tell him to take it up with your partner.

Why get involved when he isn't complaining about you?

Thailand passed a law making it illegal to smoke in your home, there is no law about smoking outside on the balcony.

 

Where did it say the partner was female, or the OP was male for that matter?

"Thailand passed a law making it illegal to smoke in your home, there is no law about smoking outside on the balcony".

Didn't say that there is.

 

"Where did it say the partner was female, or the OP was male for that matter?"

Where does it say that they aren't but what does it matter what I assumed?   I was addressing the smoking problem, not the sex of those involved.

Don't be so sure that it's correct in its application to your situation.  Smoking in condos is illegal, apparently.

The argument will now extend to ........."is the balcony part of the condo"....rather than "what is the right thing to do"?

From that link...

  1. There is a 5 meters exclusion zone around the entrances and exit areas of all significant public spaces.

Only playing devil's advocate.......apartments aren't public spaces......so balconies might not be covered by that!!!

If your partner is smoking too frequent then this is a problem, but you might want to ask your partner to do it later at night. Or you could just tell you neighbor to close their balcony door or window when they smell the smoke because it is not their place or a common shared place. I can see both points. Electronic cigs you can't even smell.  .

The responsible party is the  owner or leaseholder of the unit. It is the leaseholder or owner who is required to follow condo rules and  who is responsible for conduct of guests.

 

Must be a very heavy smoker and/or the condominium is poorly built if smoke seeps in so easily.  A balcony fan may help. Can't be much fun living so close to someone  who smells like ashtray and has the bad skin, breath and teeth that goes with it.

Our condo does (among other things) not allow smoking on balcony or common areas and implies fines for each reported case. They also impose fines for not wearing mask in common area.

 

They are all listed in the house rules in their Home app. Along with fines.

 

All they collect is donated to Red Cross though.

This could potentially be applied:

Here at my condo they put up up a bunch of signs saying no smoking in the condo, on the balcony, or common areas, besides of in designated smoking areas.

It's by the way absolutely possible that the smell from the balcony enters his condo, so be considerate and tell your partner to stop smoking, whatever any laws or rules say.
