Legislative Summary

LD1067 - (housing disclosure) - An Act To Improve Awareness of Smoking Policies in Maine Rental Housing and Condominiums - Signed by Governor

This bill requires a landlord to discuss the building’s policy pertaining to smoking on the premises to all tenants or potential tenants. Disclosures must be in writing and signed by both parties. The bill was amended to state that a violation of a smoking policy by another tenant can’t be the basis for a private cause of action against a landlord. The amendment also removes the section of the bill requiring disclosure of smoking policies to purchasers of condominiums.
