Smoke and vapour
How to deal with a Smoke and Vapour issue
Living in a condo means you may notice smoke and vapours entering your unit from neighbouring units or the common elements. Some and vapour are unavoidable and a normal part of everyday life. But what can you do when persistent smoke and vapours become an issue? The Condo Act protects you from unreasonable nuisances including smoke and vapour.
Step 1. Identify the issue
Unwanted smoke and vapour can be considered a nuisance if it’s persistent and disruptive. Common sources include when it comes from another resident and common elements, ventilation, a utility, exhaust from a machinery or from an external source like pedestrians smoking outside.
We encourage condo communities to work collaboratively to resolve smoke and vapour issues before they escalate. Continue to the next step to find out more.
