Don’t Let Your Tenant Relations Go Up In Smoke

Smoking is no longer allowed inside public housing as of July 31, 2018. And while this smoking ban is not mandatory for HUD multi-family housing, the agency strongly recommends it. In other words: HUD really wants you to go smoke-free. Are you ready? Many owners and agents are still struggling with how to legally impose no-smoking rules.

Learn how to create, implement, and enforce a smoke-free policy in your public housing. Join this information-packed webinar by assisted housing and HUD compliance expert Debbie Hixon and take a deep dive into the Smoke-Free Final Rule. Find out how HUD requires (or recommends) that you comply. And get answers to tough questions, such as whether you can deny occupancy to or evict a smoker.

After attending this instructive session, you will have the tools and knowledge you need to establish a smoke-free housing policy, including how to use proper enforcement measures and warning notices. You’ll be able to modify lease agreements and handle complaints and violation reports. Plus, you’ll walk away with a copy of the most recent HUD Notice on smoke-free housing—and an “Action Guide for Establishing Smoke-Free Housing.”

  • What are my compliance duties under HUD’s new Smoke-Free Rule?
