It's all a matter of perspective. For instance it would have appeared that Frank was pragmatic and tenant friendly. But when the chips are down Frank becomes base and a dirty name caller, referring to people he has never even met as animals. I also believe recording people without thier knowledge requires some kind of a warrant. I believe Eds advice is more real world and how the situation would more likely play out.

I believe the best option is to diffuse the situation. I personally would send them something in the form of a house warming gift with a friendly letter. These situations only lend themselves to paranoid over reaction. The landlord is not a therapist. He would more then likely contact them and simply get the tenants even madder, and have fulfilled his obligation to try and resolve the situation. He is getting rent from both parties he is not going to aggressivly alienate one tenant by taking sides. But stop paying rent, and then watch him take a side.

Be very careful, find some way to get them on your friendly side again, even if you don't want to.
