I rent out a room in the house I live in. I have an absolute no smoking policy and have even stated that smokers are not welcome in my property even if they smoke off the property. As part of the screening process I make sure to ask guests if they smoke. My current guest is here for 2 weeks and denied being a smoker in our pre-booking conversation. Tonight I noticed him walking outside smoking. My living room now has the faintest smell of smoke after he came back in. He’s otherwise a good, quiet guest who I’ve had very few interactions with. I don’t know what state the room is in, but I’m afraid it will reek of smoke.
He’s got about 10 days left on the reservation and I’m wondering if I should call AirBnB to ask him to leave early since he’s broken the house rules (I specifically say no smoking allowed inside or outside and to not enter the property if you smell like smoke). He blatantly lied to me and is potentially causing damage to my house with the smell of smoke. Should I approach him about it? Should I just ride out the reservation? He has already extended once because he just got a job in the area and is looking for housing, but I don’t want to extend again. Is there a way to block him from extending his reservation?
