Smoke Free Housing Information for Property Managers

Each year, approximately 36,500 people move into Davidson County. Based on our surveys, only 19.3% of county residents are smokers. That means approximately 29,455 non-smokers will be looking for housing next year. Go smoke-free and help meet this demand.

Smoke free policies attract residents; reduce maintenance costs and the risk of fire, all while contributing to a healthy community. And, it's legal. Smokers are not a protected class, and property managers have a right to place restrictions on smoking similar to having rules for pets and noise ordinances.

A smoke-free policy allows your residents to breathe clean air and affords you the opportunity to provide a safe home resident can feel proud to share with friends, family and pets.
