I'm not sure I understand exactly what violation they have committed.  But if a tenant violates some part of a lease, you issue them a perform or quit notice to cease the action immediately.  If it is listed in your lease that the act will result in termination, I think you can simply give an unconditional quit notice in your state.  (If you think the tenant will challenge it, it is usually best to give the perform or quit.  This shows you afforded the tenant the chance to stop doing it and stay and the tenant chose not to.)  So I'd serve the perform or quit telling the tenant to no longer _____.  State specifically that further ____ will result in termination of the lease and eviction.  Serve it according to the proper method for your state.  Keep a copy.  Document what they have been doing.  Document it again if they recommit the violation.  You will need proof for court.

Told tenant not to use swimming pool because of exstension cords cannot be used , mass code law, until  it is repaired by a licensed electrician, . what happens if they do not listen to me and still use the pool.

Send the notice in writing that says not to use a pool and why.  If they violate it, send a cure or quit (perform or quit) notice.  If they fail to perform, call the city inspector and have them fined.  If they still refuse to remove it, file to evict.

You may want to inspect a "No pools, no trampolines" clause in your lease.  These two items are consider attractive nuisances by insurance companies.  Your insurance can be terminated for these since they consider them high risk incidents.  These items are attractive to children.  They (especially pools) require tall, locking fences to keep trespassers and unwary kids out of them.  If a child were to wander in and drown, the property owner could be held responsible.  This is why insurance companies do not like them.

Hey, I love pools too.  But in this climate and when it's 23 degrees and snowing like today, I don't think its something I would consider!!!

Yeah pools tend to have that disadvantage. Everything freezes up and you don't even feel like looking at your water and you have to keep your pool parts in working order! Lol! Pool covers are really quite a bit more important than they seem.

We have a pool but we live in Hawaii so the temp isnt an issue. Small children peeing in the pool is our big deal. It completely throws off the chemical balancing. We also have a long set of rules for the pool that I took from a public swimming pool about "pool behavior" and parental responsibility. We also upped our liability insurance to reflect the pool issues.

Instructed tenant not to ever work with damages as a consequence of extension wires is not utilized, large code law, until it really is restored by a registered domestic electrician,. what happens in case they just don't hear me personally but still utilize the pool.

Thomas, put it in writing that the pool is not usable,  It is unsafe and tenants should not use it for their own safety.  Send it certified to the tenant with return receipt requested so you can prove they knew this.

I have a question that is very specific to my situation but here it goes:

I manage an apartment building in Los Angeles that is under RSO and I am vacating to tear down. All but one tenant have been legally relocated to other housing options and provided relocation funds as well. One tenant has exercised his full extension option to remain there until the end of this year. This tenant has been a nightmare at every turn and is trying to get some grounds to sue me. His motivation is entirely due to his mental illness and his desire to not move his hording collection to a new place (we have offered to cover moving fees). His new avenue for screwing me over has been to secretly poor chemicals in the pool to turn it bright green overnight ( I know this sounds crazy but I tour the property daily and it will be perfect one day and green the next). He then calls the health department to report us and we are given notice to remedy the hazard within 24 hrs or be fined. Can I legally close the pool and drain it or do I have to post signs saying its under repairs? If so how long can I keep it as such? I cant evict him and my company doesn't use security cameras because of the added liability of having them at a property. My main goal is I need to mitigate liability as much as possible and close off this avenue to him. 

Any help is greatly appreciated!
