If the boards are machine assembled and do not have plugged vias you must ensure there is some solder mask between pads and vias, otherwise solder paste can wick into the via, making for a poor joint on the pad.

I place vias like this routinely without issues. I recommend tenting the via to mitigate any solder flow issues. It's always a good idea to run design rules past the intended CM, in any case.
