Ohio apartment landlords look to go smoke-free

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Two major apartment landlords in central Ohio are implementing smoke-free policies this year.

T&R Properties, which manages more than 20 central Ohio complexes, and Crawford Hoying, with 25 complexes, are banning smoking in certain buildings, including on patios and terraces.

According to The Columbus Dispatch (bit.ly/Y0QTLp), tenants will be required to move to a building where smoking is allowed or agree not to smoke at home.

Violating the agreement would be treated like breaking any tenant rule, such as no pets, and could result in eviction.
