When can you hang laundry on the balcony? There are two exceptions

There is no ban on hanging laundry in the garden, on the terrace or on the balcony. On the contrary, we should even dry our clothes outside to give them a fresh scent and get rid of microorganisms. However, there are two exceptions. Firstly, the housing community may prohibit drying laundry on the balcony if there are regular complaints that neighbors do not want such views. Therefore, it is worth getting acquainted with the building regulations before putting the clothes dryer outside. Secondly, in some cases the Code of Petty Offenses applies. If water is dripping heavily from hanging clothes and pouring onto other balconies, your neighbors can report it and you will receive a PLN 500 fine. You will also receive a penalty if the dryer placed outside the balustrade is too heavy. If a neighbor believes that this poses a threat to his or her safety, he or she may report you to the police or city guard.
