My Tenants keep smoking in the rental unit even though I've made it clear that it's a non-smoking house. Can I just kick them out – what's the process I have to follow ?

    I have the same issue- I verbally told them but somehow forgot to list in on the lease. What can I do?

    You cannot evict a tenant on the basis of smoking. According to the human rights code, smoking is considered a nicotine addiction, which is equivalent to a disability in their eyes.

    Seems like we’re both in a pickle! This is seems like helpful information, but I don't own a condo and I don't answer to a condo corporation. This is a landlord-tenant problem and there is no third party. Can anyone else help!?

    You just can't kick them out but should give them warning there is no smoking house...and if they again smoke then do action .
