I live in an apartment development where half of the residents are given access to the entire property, and the other half are not. There is no mention of common areas in the lease, and no mention of who has use of them. When we moved in, we were told to use the stairs and sidewalks to walk to the beach, which is logical, since the hillsides and streets are very steep where I live. A 12 percent grade, or 33 degree angle. There are no public stair cases nearby, so it's not unreasonable to use these stairs. Denying people who live on this property, the use of these stairs would appear to be unreasonable to any person who sees the property. After all, the stairs were originally installed to go up the hill from below, and conversely, to go down. If applicable, how do I enforce this statute?
