Re: Consistent tenant-smell issues, what's next? by Lpadave on December 2, 2021 @05:34

Welcome to the brave new world

Be careful about descrimination claims based on ethnic or food issues
Communicate in writing TO EACH OF ALL TENANTS exactly the same.

Sounds like the odors are moving between units through the floors and walls, not uncommon in older buildings. You'll spend a lot of money trying to address that.

Probably with little actual success.

Are your smoke co and fire protection devices all in order ?
Are you doing unit inspections at least twice a year.

Housekeeping issues and kitchen cleanliness might get you somewhere.
Infestations of pests is a ritiously cause for action.
filthy stove / oven is both a fire and health saftey issue.

Over stove vent hoods ducted to exterior would be my recommendation, again for all units. If physical layout can accommodate.

You're gonna be spending some money here, one way or the other.
Try to avoid spending it on lawyers.

Cash for keys and on their way ?
