View Full Version : Life 2nd hand smoke laws

Does anyone know of any state or federal regulations about second hand smoke in apartment buildings. The person below me smokes on their porch about every 15 minutes, meaning I can never have my deck door or windows open, ever! My girlfriend and I went through this same thing last spring/summer with these same assholes. At one point he agreed not to smoke out there if we hung a ****ing pop can over out balcony when our windows were to be open. He then said he was going to quite smoking and I think he did for awhile. However, today about 5 minutes after opening my windows for the first time this year, all that smoke came drifting in!

I tried googling the laws for the state of Washington but didn't find anything specific about my right to breathe clean air. Anyone have any help?

I believe you should start looking at city and / or county regulations.

Call your county housing department or city housing department.

Even in my sate (california) it varies by city/county. And, furthermore, most places still allow smoking inside your apartment. VERY VERY Rare is the locale where it is banned. Even if it is 'banned' it can be on the difficult side to enforce. It is also sometimes banned to smoke in 'common areas' like on stoops and stairways, but again difficult to enforce.

Now, assuming you are in a month-to-month contract and not a long term lease, this puts the burden on YOU to find a non-smoking complex. To mitigate your damages and fears, you should begin looking immediately for an apartment complex or living situation where you are not around smokers.

Sorry for the bad news.

I had that same issue back in our last apartment. I didn't dig into the legalities of it, but I'd have my doubts that there's much you can do. If they're allowed to smoke in the apartment by management, you're probably stuck.

Well we are trying to move in the next few months anyway. I just had to go through all this last year and the landlord actually seemed to side with us. However it seems a new year means this douchebag thinks I no longer care about smelling his shit.

I don't think it is alll that open. If it is truly blowing up into your apartment, I'd say that is an unreasonable disturbance. Take it up with the landlord, and if he acts like he doesn't care, there's probably come sort of local housing agency or landlord/tentant advocacy place that might give you advice.

Don't call it your house. It's a building filled with tenants that all have very limited space. I live in an apartment complex. Sometimes the people above me are loud at 11 at night and walk around. Should I call the cops? Legal advice, plz.

I smell it within minutes of him going out there but it is usually my girlfriend with asthma that notices it first. If we have the window open and then come home the places smells of it as well, even if he isn't out there at that very moment. It is a small apartment so it doesn't take much to notice it.

Guess I just need to make sure that there is a strict policy in place for the next place we move to so I don't have to be such a bitch.

I'd also suggest just bs'ing around with your neighbors a bit before you move in.

In order to handle this properly, get a note from her doctor so they clearly know "hey dumbasses, you're breathing fucking smoke onto someone with asthma!" Just talk with the manager and be nice, but firm about a permanent solution coming about. If nothing happens after some time, give notice about the issue via certified mail, in which they have 5-10 days to do something about it. If nothing happens, than start taking it up with a local housing authority.

Especially considering the manager lives underneath, expect the solution to be that you're the ones who will be moving to a different unit.

I am sorry you have to deal with this. Change is coming, but slowly.....

Maybe you could have your landlord move you to a unit that was further away/downstairs/upstairs or that you thought might be more suitable / less invaded by smoke.

You could offer to help paint or clean the apartment even. Alot of times landlords don't like moving people around within a complex, because it is rather expensive.... but in your case they might make an exception if you keep it friendly.

You could point out (politely) that the problem is so bad you are considering moving anyhow, and just are trying to help solve the problem.

Just talk with the manager and be nice, but firm about a permanent solution coming about. If nothing happens after some time, give notice about the issue via certified mail, in which they have 5-10 days to do something about it. If nothing happens, than start taking it up with a local housing authority.

Especially considering the manager lives underneath, expect the solution to be that you're the ones who will be moving to a different unit.

Well they weren't here when we moved in and I was moving here from a different state. Good information though about the steps I could tak. I am trying to get a job in a different state so hopefully I don't have to live here much longer anyway.

Funny thing is that the manager says she wonders half the time if we are even up there because we are so courteous and quiet. I wonder if she knows the definition of courteous?

That's the biggest reason I will never live in an apartment complex ever again. If you don't live your life like your neighbors, they have a problem with you. It's always something. There should be a law against apartment buildings. All dwellings should be a minimum of 1 block apart.

When you live in multifamily dwellings, your neighbors are going to annoy you in one way or another. My best advice is deal with it until you can buy a house.

Yea I know. I generally haven't had to bitch about much in all the apartments I have lived in.

That's pretty ridiculous. There's a difference between minor, or even major, annoyances that happen every once in a while vs. every single day for long periods of time.

Does anyone know of any state or federal regulations about second hand smoke in apartment buildings. The person below me smokes on their porch about every 15 minutes, meaning I can never have my deck door or windows open, ever! My girlfriend and I went through this same thing last spring/summer with these same assholes. At one point he agreed not to smoke out there if we hung a ****ing pop can over out balcony when our windows were to be open. He then said he was going to quite smoking and I think he did for awhile. However, today about 5 minutes after opening my windows for the first time this year, all that smoke came drifting in!

I tried googling the laws for the state of Washington but didn't find anything specific about my right to breathe clean air. Anyone have any help?

That sucks, dude. I fucking hate that smell.

I'm a smoker, (but will be quitting soon), and I can't stand the smell of cigarette smoke either. In fact, I make it a point to step out to smoke so my house doesn't wreak. So, I do understand what you and your g/f are going through.

However, your neighbor has every right to go outside to smoke. As a matter of fact, it's the non-smokers that took the rights away from smokers and are now forcing us to smoke outside. This may not be the case if smoking is allowed in the building, but he still has every right to choose to smoke in his home or outside.

Think about this for a second... I'm at a stop light behind a diesel truck and it takes off, my entire car fills up w/ deadly toxins from his exhaust. What can I do? Nothing. This happens to me at least 3-4 times a week driving to and from work. I suppose the next time this happens I could flag the driver down and tell him that I would appreciate it if he didn't drive his truck on the same streets I take to/from work. Does that sound logical? Not at all. I know that he has every right to drive that vehicle wherever the hell he wants.

Some thoughts:

1. First off, fuck you. Seriously.

2. You live in an apartment. You think some guy going OUTSIDE to smoke is horrible? Wait until a family of curry-reeking Indians moves in next door. That smell leeches through the walls and never goes away, 24/7. You'd lick an ashtray to get the smell of it out of your head. Other wonderful neighbors include those with screaming babies, dogs that never stop barking, punks that blast their music so loud that the bass makes your fillings rattle, trash that scream, yell and fight each other at all hours, I could go on and on. You don't like it? Buy a fucking house. Of course, being on the Left Coast, it seems you should be able to find a non-smoking apartment at the Communist Arms. That'll work out great for you, at least until you start doing something they don't approve of.

3. Second hand smoke blowing in your window occasionally isn't going to hurt you. There is no constitutional amendment protecting you from bad smells, regardless of what you see on TV. If there was, the non-bathing pig who sat behind me on the train this morning who smelled like a garlic-drenched corpse would get the death penalty. Things in life sometimes stink.

He can still open his window. When he does, he's going to suck air into his apartment that had previously been outside his apartment. When you live around hundreds of people, sometimes that air is going to smell like exhaust or cigarette smoke or food or a fireplace.

You don't own the air outside your apartment, and people don't have to make sure that the air smells a certain way in case you want to bring some of it into your window.

I understand but here is the problem, that side of the apartment is pretty much all the windows in this apartment besides one! He could easily smoke out his front door so I could have my balcony, kitchen and bedroom windows open. I guess that is too much of an inconvenience even though it is the exact same distance to smoke out his front door rather than his balcony.

Seriously, all he has to do is shut those particular windows. Big fcking deal.


So all my windows have to be shut, meaning when it hits about 70 degrees outside, my apartment is at 80 degrees (since it is a top unit) and there is no AC here in many places in the Northwest, including my apartment.

So this guy smokes outdoors, a floor below you? Does his second hand smoke actually go into your apartment? Outside, I would think the smoke would dissipate before it made it that far. You're probably just smelling the scent of one smoking a cigarette, in which case, there isn't a lot you can do but deal with it. If someone is cooking something with a less than desirable odor, you're also out of luck.

Best thing to do is just go talk to the guy. Tell him the smell bothers you and ask if he could please go to the parking lot to smoke if he sees your windows and/or patio door open. If he refuses, I guess you'll have to move to another apartment in the building, or another apartment complex altogether.

Awesome rant aside, I seriously doubt enough smoke (if any at all) is actually entering the apartment.

Sure, you can smell it, but is it really enough to affect an asthma sufferer? If she's that sensitive to cigarette smoke, then walking down a busy city street must be damn near debilitating.

Have you ever had your bronchial walls tighten, even a little? It isn't a great feeling and even a mild attack is somewhat scary. Mostly is causes her eyes to water a bit and nose to run. On occasion when he has been chain smoking out there it causes a minor asthma attack for her, which although minor, is not fun.

Smoke = Cuts down on Oxygen in lungs.

Well I lived here first and she moved over a few months afterwards. The people that lived below us first were the managers here as well but they didn't smoke.

I am acutely aware of the fact that jobs require varying degrees of education.

You seem to be unaware of the fact that the world isn't going to stop spinning until you complete your education and purchase your own place. You chose to stay in school and be broke for a while instead of getting a full time job. That's great, and it will likely serve you well in the long-term. Everything comes at a cost. In this case, the cost includes having to put up with the crap that comes with community living.

From my experience, about one-third of the smoking population understands their responsibilities and conducts themselves with courtesy towards others. I really have a lot of respect for those smokers who are conscientious in that regard.

The other two-thirds either doesn't get it or doesn't give a shit. Bottom line is that one's choice to smoke is strictly their choice. It is not anyone's place to tell them they can't kill themselves with cigarettes if that is what they choose to do. However, it is also not the smokers place to expose others who choose not to smoke to the consequences of their habit.

I am constantly amazed at the number of smokers who feel it is their right to expose others (including defenseless children) to the health consequences of second hand smoke. It also amazes me that they feel they can just toss their butts onto the ground for others to follow behind them and clean up after their nastiness.

JMHO...

I think the problem could be that the neighbor sees no reason why any "compromise" should be necessary. He's smoking outside, and as far as he's concerned, "Hey, at least I'm not smoking indoors and really stinking up the building."

Their feeling of nausea is quite real to them but, it really does not indicate they have been poisoned.

It's not just me either, I mean every time some movie sets up scene with white trash characters the cigarette is a big part of the image.

Lumpy seems a bit irritable today. Gonzo had better be on his best behaviour! :D

Usually it is just the smell although as I said when he is chain smoking I can see a bit of smoke actually coming in. I understand the point you are trying to make, if it is just the smell, this is a nuisance and not a health concern. I just hate having my house get to 80 degree when it is nice outside because I have to keep all my windows closed. And yes I know, I need to move.

Just seems like the statement in the lease about not disturbing me with his smoking should cover my apartment not smelling of that awful shit? Seriously if he smoked out his front door I wouldn't smell it much if at all and we both could still have our rights.

Dude, I would be pissed, too. However, the guys who said you're probably SOL until you can afford your own place are right. Have you asked to switch apartments? If you're moving anyway, can you ask to be let out of the lease early?

I hate smoke as much as anyone, but you have to deal with all sorts of shitbags when you live in an apartment.

Smoking a cigarette out on his deck, which is perfectly legal = Shitbag

No. Someone's a little sensitive.... That's not what I was saying. I'm saying there are a lot of shitbags in all apartment complexes. Having to keep his windows closed because of a smoker is a small price compared to some of the shitbags he could be dealing with.

At one apartment I lived in I had a guy and his girlfriend that lived below me that were out on their patio smoking just about 20 hours a day. It drove me nuts. I asked the guy to stop real nice like and he told me to **** off. So, I pissed on the door handle of his car.

ROFL I love that.

Yup. And of course, it would be cheap beer. From a can. Probably not even cold.

Yeah, and it's not even that time of the month. :hmmm: Btw, I just got a call from Gonzo. He made a special trip to one of my favorite candy stores and picked up a box of chocolates for me. He must really think he's in the doghouse. ROFL

Hell, I'm not going to complain. I love me some chocolate! :drool:

Omaha'd be singing a different tune if the smoker was a 90 pound woman with A cup boobs.
