Smoke-Free Rentals In Johnson County

Are you a non-smoker looking for smoke-free rentals in Johnson County? If living in a smoke-free environment is important to you and your family or roommates, make sure you find a property that includes a tobacco free policy.

At Johnson County Department of Health and Environment, we receive frequent calls from residents who say they do not smoke but have moved into an apartment complex and now find out they have smokers living in apartments above, below or next to them. They love their property because it is the best location, has amenities they enjoy or simply is the right price. But smoke is drifting into their apartments under the threshold, through the vents etc. “Can you help us?” they ask.

Unfortunately, the time to find out about tobacco-free policies is before you sign that lease. When you seek rental housing consider all the things that are important to you, including clean air. Most apartment rental web sites list amenities offered, but sometimes being tobacco-free is not listed and you may have to contact the property to ensure they have a policy in place. So do your homework before you sign on the dotted line. Get all the amenities you can afford, including a safe, healthy environment, free from drifting smoke.

To help make your search easier for smoke-free rentals in Johnson County, we have developed a web site to assist you in finding no-smoking rental properties. Visit www.smokefreeliving.jocogov.org to learn more.
