LandlordsAs a landlord, you can play a role in eliminating a significant cause of illness in the home and a major cause of preventable death in the United States: secondhand smoke.
There is so much false information available to landlords about smoke-free policies, that you may find it difficult to make an informed decision. On this site you find all of the information you will need to make your property smoke-free.
The most important fact? A smoke-free policy is NOT discriminatory.
In fact, non-smokers with serious breathing disabilities or smoke allergies actually have legal protection under federal and state laws.
The right to smoke is not protected under law, according to the opinion of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). As long as the policy is not used to target a protected class or minority, a building manager is legally free to restrict or prohibit smoking.
Let us tell you more about smoking myths vs. reality, landlords' rights and your risks. We'll also show you how to save money, save your building, and give you tools for going smoke-free in your building.
