Non-smoking Resources for Landlords and Tenants

Secondhand smoke restrictions in multi-family residences, such as apartment buildings or condominiums with 4 or more units, will go into effect on June 1, 2010.  The multi-family provisions limit smoking to inside a residence (so long as the unit is not designated as non-smoking), or in an outdoor smoking area if designated by the landlord.  Smoking on balconies, porches, patios, carports, or similar “private outdoor spaces” of a multi-family residence will not be permitted in order to prevent such smoke from infringing upon another resident.
