SIT BACK, RELAX,
Frequently Asked Questions
Fairfield Residential is committed to providing homes that cater to a healthy, environmentally-friendly living experience for our residents. As a result, we implemented Share the Air, our smoke-free program, in 2019. See below for a list of our frequently asked questions about this beneficial program.
1. When did this change take place?
On September 1, 2019, we began the transition to becoming completely smoke-free. As a result, smoking is not permitted in any public areas of our communities including parking lots, picnic areas and green spaces. Smoking will only be permitted in the designated smoking areas at select communities. Please reach out to your Property Manager to find out if you have assigned designated smoking areas at your community.
2. Can I still smoke in my home or on my patio/balcony?
Though we are beginning the smoke-free policy now, it may take up to a year to complete the full transition based on your lease renewal timing. As you and your neighbors renew your leases, you will be required to sign a smoke-free lease addendum. All new leases will include language prohibiting the ability to smoke inside your home or on any patios/balconies.
3. Why has Fairfield Residential decided to go smoke-free?
Our goal is to provide a healthier, more comfortable living environment for our residents. Did you know that up to 65% of the air in an apartment building is shared? That means that even smoking inside your apartment can impact others at the community. We hope to positively impact our residents living experiences, health and the well-being of our environment with this change.
4. Will e-cigarettes be allowed?
Our goal is to provide a healthier, more comfortable living environment for our residents. No, any form of smoking is prohibited, including e-cigarettes.
