Where there is smoke there is fire… or a lease violation. No one wants a rental unit that smells like an old ashtray and smoking in a rental unit or on the leased premises can have a lasting effect on your rental property. If someone reports a potential smoking violation from a tenant or one of the tenant’s guests smoking in a rental unit or on the leased premises it should be addressed as soon as possible.
While most people would expect that the days of hiding away to smoke cigarettes in places you were not supposed to were over in high school, it seems your tenants did not get the memo. But not to worry, the Smoking Violation Notice politely reminds your tenant that smoking is not allowed in the rental unit or on the leased premises. It also reminds them that the smoking policy applies to all guests and visitors, as well as the tenants themselves. The notice informs the tenant that there has been a violation and requires the tenant to refrain from smoking or face penalties, such as eviction. Lastly, the document notifies your tenant that they will be responsible for any damage caused by the smoking violation.
This document is fully customizable and can include any other information you wish to include. The Smoking Violation Notice allows you to send official notice that the lease has been violated and gives the the tenant fair warning about the consequences of continuing the behavior. Additionally, if there is any confusion as to the… ahem, origin of the smoking violation, the Zero Tolerance for Criminal Activity
document may also come in handy.
It is important to note that the Smoking Violation Notice does not satisfy legal requirements for eviction filing. To ensure complaince with local regulations, please review our Eviction Notices
