Tenants leaving due to other occupants smoking

2 Replies

I recently purchased a rental condo. Turns out that people who own their own unit can smoke. I assumed all buildings in MA were smoke free. I called the prior management/HOA and they essentially told me I have no recourse even though it lead to my tenants leaving my rental. Any advice on action I can move forward with would be appreciated.

Smoking is a nasty habit but shouldn’t people be able to do so in their own homes?

Was the odor seeping through shared vents or through firewall or what?
