Good News for Smoke-free Housing
The lease includes Section 10 which invites parties to agree to a smoking policy. The section gives space to describe the policy in detail. A screenshot of the section is below.
The measure will make it much easier for Landlords and Tenants to agree to smoke-free policies and over-time will substantially reduce exposure to second-hand smoke.
*Please note, exceptions include:
- care homes (for example, retirement homes)
- mobile home parks and land lease communities
- social and supportive housing exempt from the rent rules under the RTA
