Designed in collaboration with customers, our Good Neighbour Guide contains our top tips and pieces of advice for building good relationships with your neighbours.

Our rules on smoking in and around your property

No smoking symbol

Smoking by anyone, including visitors, is strictly prohibited in all enclosed (or substantially enclosed) communal areas owned by Bolton at Home. Smoking immediately inside or outside any property entrances is also prohibited.

It’s been illegal for anyone to smoke in an enclosed public place (and within the workplace) since July 2007. Smoke also shouldn’t be allowed to enter into any nearby buildings through open windows or doors.

You and anyone visiting may smoke in your home – and you may also smoke in any garage, shed, outhouse, or other structure that is for your sole use – as long as it’s safe for you to do so.

The law also requires us (Bolton at Home) to protect our staff – and anyone acting on our behalf – from the risks of second-hand smoke whilst at work. This means that we can refuse to attend appointments (e.g. to complete a repair) in your home if you smoke during our visit or if cigarette smoke is still present in your home.

We want to make sure we’re able to deliver the services you’ve requested (like repairs) when we visit – so please create a smoke-free environment by not smoking for an hour before our colleagues and/or contractors are due to arrive at your property, and by ensuring that rooms are suitably aired.

Thanks for your understanding.
