: I just moved in to a two family house with no lease been there for six months. Now out of the blue my landlord tells me that I have to stop smoking or I will have to look for another place. He did not give me a time limit to be out by just said "smoking has to stop or you might want to look for another place to live".
: Nothing was ever said about smoking and I have nothing in writting so where do i stand.
I know this sounds lecturing, and it's not, but I just quit again for the
20th time, and I'm glad I did it. (I'm in my 40's and my lungs actually
started hurting) I know your landlord is being a pain, but maybe you could
smoke outside or late at night when they're sleeping. I think anna was
right, and I know they can serve you with a petition to move out if they
get nasty. So if you like it there, consider hiding the fact that you
smoke there, like they have these ashtrays that absorb the smoke, etc. If
you were in a building with 6 units or more, the landlord couldn't say
that and would be obligated to give you a 1-2 year lease. But in a 2 family
house like yours they can just end your stay for no reason. It isn't worth
it to go to court over it, is it?
