No nuts in your own home? How can that be allowed?

A friend of mine just told me that when she moved into her apartment one of the things that she was told from the manager is that she can't have peanut butter or any nuts products in her own home because her neighbor is deathly allergic. This neighbor of hers is an adult too. Can they really do that?

I sure hope not. I wouldn't have moved into a place with such an insane rule in place.

I wouldn't think so. It is her apartment and as long as the neighbor is not coming into her home then I don't see why she couldn't have nuts in her home.

Was this stiputlation a part of her lease she signed?

no, she said that manager just wants everyone to comply with it to make every ones living to be as comfortable as possible.

Is it in the lease agreement? I can understand both sides of the story. I wouldn't follow that rule. Peanut Butter is a must in our house...

Interesting.  I don't know if that's legally something he can make them keep out of the apartment or not, but I suppose he's just trying to keep his residents safe and happy.

I'd be smuggling it in.

 If it is not stated on the lease, then the apartment manager can not enforce it.
