Secondhand Smoke

In 2011, the state of California passed a law that all property managers may prohibit the smoking of cigarettes or other tobacco products on the property or in any portion of the building. (California Civil Code Section 1947.5)

Smoke-free housing

Why is this important?

Secondhand smoke (SHS) has the same harmful chemicals that smokers inhale. There's no safe level of exposure for SHS. It is known to cause cancer and has more than 7,000 chemicals, including at least 70 that can cause cancer.

SHS from one tenant smoking indoors can drift into multiple other units and cause health problems and reduced quality of life for other residents.

A smoke-free building is in the best interest of both tenants and landlords. Many types of rental housing are starting to adopt smoke-free policies to not only protect the health of the tenants, but also to save money by reducing maintenance and turnover costs, and reduce the risk of fire.
