Question for Tenants
I'm a landlord and just got a complaint call from a tenant. The complaint is for a "smoke" smell coming from the tenant below. I called the apartment where the smell is coming from even though it was a little after 10pm. No answer. I didn't feel safe to go over by myself and knock on the door, so I have written up a complaint and left a phone message. I observed the smell myself so I am sure its this apartment. In my written notice I said next time she may be asked to move out.
Do tenants on this board who have made compaints feel this is acceptable? I have been a landlord for years and know how to handle noise issues but have never delt with this. I want to be fair to both parties but especially keep the good tenant who complained happy.
