As a smoker myself, I completely agree with the non-smoker inside the building, and so on, I have a question. If there are no no-smoking signs on a community roof that has only one tenant on that floor (but that is not on this side of the roof, so would not be affected by second-hand smoke), is it an open surface, so no ceiling or fences that would avoid smoke, would it be permissible? In these days of human rights law, do landlords have the right to prevent their tenants from smoking in their rental building? Well, the short answer is — yes. You`re ignorant. Although it is not illegal to smoke in your apartment if your landlord declares in your contract that “smoking is prohibited”, you are violating the contract, so the owner must act. No, it`s not illegal, it`s a violation of your contract. In Council housing, they check whether they are changing this situation and introducing non-smoking laws, since it is indeed a Council property, it is indeed a government building and therefore falls under the current non-smoking legislation. They do not have the clause because they would have almost empty properties. Private rentals for Council dwellings do have non-smoking clauses like almost all leases, short-term leases. Another recent survey, that of Easyroomate, showed that 38% of private landlords would actually evict tenants they caught smoking in their building. A smoker`s supplement is an additional document added to an existing rental agreement. After the signing, this document will be included in the original agreement.
The owner should consider one if the current lease is silent, if smoking is allowed on the premises. Even if the lease is already signed, a landlord can still ask for a night to sign this document if he is particularly concerned about the use of the substances listed by his tenants. As a tenant of an undated house, I should have the right to do in this property, as I see it, and in law. It is permissible to smoke in your own home. By law, a tenant of a non-real estate property has property rights close to the property. It would be a very dangerous precedent if an owner was able to impose lifestyles such as a smoking ban inside the denied property. @Gillian Smith. It`s not “at home.” You pay a fraction of the value of the house or apartment for the right to live there. You don`t pay for repairs or maintenance, and if something is broken, I bet you don`t fix it, and I bet that`s when you say to the owner, “This is not my house.”
