What if I am the owner of the apartment under Strata title and the person next door is a renter and is complaining that when I have an occasional smoke or have guests over that they can smell my cigarette smoke. What responsibilities have I to any consequences that may be incurred.

Even when you’re smoking on your private balcony or within the confines on your home, remember smoke tends to drift into neighbouring apartments. Passive smoking is a big health risk that others haven’t signed up for and shouldn’t be subjected to.
Make sure to close your doors and windows so the smoke doesn’t get into other’s private property or common areas. You should take note if there are any by-laws about smoking in the Strata title.
