Duplex/tenant disputes! Do you intervene or not?

I have been a landlord for the last 6 months. Aside from watching YouTube videos and networking I did not have any prior experience in real estate. I chose to become a real estate investor/landlord because all processes pertaining to owning real estate has been interesting to me and I believe it is a great road to take for building generational wealth. Im very direct & straightforward which I believe are 2 of the many qualities landlords should possess.

With that being side, I purchased a duplex unit and wanted advice in reference to neighbor disputes. When/if your tenant(s) have minor/major disputes, is it my “job” as a landlord to get in the middle of it? If so, at what point?

I’ve already had to let one tenant go mainly because of neighbor difference. I would like a better viewpoint before allowing a new tenant to sign a lease. All advice is welcomed!
