Hello, and thanks for using JUST ANSWER. You really need to find out what's going on next door. If it is truly a drug lab, that can be very dangerous, both to life and property. Drug fumes can literally destroy the interior of a home.You might ask the local police to check out the property at night. It's possible that the police will know what is causing the smell. the other alternative is for you as the owner to check it out personally with the tenant. if there is suspicious activity going on, then you should terminate the lease and evict the occupants as soon as possible.
I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
Thanks again for using JUST ANSWER.
Please clarify. Is the odor coming from a half of the duplex that you own, or from the house next door?
Thanks. If noxious odors are emanating from that tenants side,you do not need proof to ask the tenant about it. It is your property and you have a right to know what is going on inside of it. If you can't check out the property personally, you might consider hiring a local property manager to do that for you. You can probably get it to do that for a fixed fee, rather than signing up with him for continuing management services
Please don't forget to enter a Karen hopefully) five-star rating. We appreciate your business.
