    Well this is bullshit –

    I wonder if the $11k is going to be covered by landlord insurance…..

    As long as the landlord made reasonable efforts I don’t see how they could be held responsible…at best the tenant should have been able to break the lease but $11k in compensation….wtf??

    I’m assuming the downstairs neighbor can now be sued for the $11k?

    I totally agree with you on this Dean. How can a landlord be held liable for something that’s happening outside the boundaries of his property. If the tenant has an issue with the smoke (which I completely understand), let them leave but how the hell can they be entitled to compensation?!!

    If the smell of the cigarette smoke had permeated into the apartment that badly making it “uninhabitable”, could the downstairs neighbour be sued for damage to the property I wonder?
