My tenants of five months seem to live on curry. The flat smells of it every time I go around, despite my asking them to open windows and ensure the cooker hood is used. A tenant from an adjoining flat has already left because of the continuous smell.
(a) can I evict due to the offensive smell?
(b) can I make a claim off their deposit for deep cleaning and replacement of impregnated furnishings that won’t clean?
(c) in future, can I write something into the agreement (as I have with smoking) to prevent strong smelling spices being used in the property?
