Can we hold a landlord accountable for their tenant’s behavior?
Our neighbors braai all the time. The smoke affects my washing hanging on the line. I’ve asked the lady to please just send me a message to tell me they intend making a fire. She said she would and then never did. TheyI even made a fire the next day. Despite talking to our neighbors, they disrespect our requests. Can we ask the landlord to talk to them to get a better result?
Of course you can your neighbour’s landlord over the nuisance. It is also highly recommended that neighbours should always try to reach an amicable solution and compromise by themselves. They can even appoint an independent party to arbitrate. Otherwise you have to take your neighbour to court where the matter will be ventilated in terms of Neighbour law and the guiding principle will be “live-and-let-live“. Thank you.
