Landlords say no-smoking rule is legal

Some claim smokers are bad for business because they drive up costs

Q: I work in a major university’s housing referral office where we work with local landlords who want to offer housing options to our students. Recently a landlord came in to the rental office and wanted to list a house for rent with the stipulation of no smoking in the house or that only nonsmokers would be allowed in his rental house. Is this legal? What are the laws on smoking in a rented house, condo or apartment?
