Noncompliant Proof (by Dee Ann [WI]) Posted on: Nov 18, 2022 5:12 PM

Last two non-compliant prospects not only did not follow directions, but my ad states no smoking and ta da, facebook pics of each smoking with cigarette in hand. One of the pics they were blowing smoke out in the pic.

Years ago I denied a couple of prospects because they put non smokers on application, yet had pic of smoking on facebook and LL also confirmed that they smoked.

Other prospect was walking through very interested and made a comment about himself smoking. It was too late as his wife hadn't told him it was a non smoking place.

Smoking is not only bad for health but a million dollar habit where every week if put in mutual funds then over a period of time would easily add up to million dollars and more. Tenants have a lower education along with if did not smoke, drink or use illegal drugs they would be able to put a down payment on a house. What people fail to understand the amount of damage done by smoking where the walls are coated with nicotine. I went into a rental unit with pressure washer to clean off the nicotine before applying a primer. Most of them never reach 65 where will not require a pension. Here it is possible to go to a doctor where can prescript medication to help quit smoking. In Germany and EU smoking is more common. Can see benefits of using marijuana as this will eventually effect lungs. Finally compared to EU the percentage of people smoking here is much lower along with those who die then that percentage goes down further.

I hate it too when this happens. In my "C" grade properties we have chain smokers and alcoholics. So I provide a filtering device. It is a combination ash tray and air filter. When used properly, it can filter out 95%+ of the smoke and bad elements. It has MERV filter. --47.156.xx.xx

They are. They learned to walk on two feet.

Sounds like they maybe vaping and for some reason they don't consider this smoking. So be sure to include: no smoking or vaping allowed. --172.56.xx.xx
