How do you stop tenants from disconnecting smoke detectors?
I just received an email from the property manager saying the tenants didn't want the smoke detectors because they kept going off. Does a management company just let tenants decide this? I don't know if smoke detectors were ever in installed with the tenants who didn't want them. I know they were never installed on the other side positively.
This is how this management company is going to try to get out of refunding my money. If they put them in with the tenants that didn't want them, why wouldn't they put them in both sides of the duplex? If the tenants didn't want them, why didn't management contact me telling me this, and why didn't they tell the tenants that's too bad because by law they have to have them? This should be grounds for eviction in my opinion. Tenants cannot decide this!! I would imagine lots of tenants don't care & disconnect them. You can't stay there babysitting them, so how do you control this? So now management will claim they installed the smoke detectors & the tenants took them down.
