Q: I have a tenant who is moving out a month early, citing “constructive eviction” because the tenant in the unit below him snores too loudly. The home is a well-built Tudor duplex. He wants me to keep his security deposit and use it as last month’s rent. If I do not agree, he says he will “hold me responsible” for his economic burdens of not sleeping.
