if a person lived for 20years + in an appartment then died and smoked in the aprt the whole time can the owner or agent come after a 3rd party

Who is the 3rd party, and why would the landlord come after him?
If a tenant caused damage to an apartment, a landlord is entitled to sue for the costs to repair.
If the tenant died, then the landlord would have to sue the estate.
If there were other tenants in the unit, the landlord could also sue them.
It all depends on who the 3rd party is and what their connection to the tenant was. Mr. Spirtos mentioned a few scenarios, but until you specify the details, we can't help you.
