Subject: How Safe is Truly Safe - Landlord's Responsibility 2 Tenants
How safe is a truly safe building? What is the landlord's responsibility to secure the building from trespassers?
These and many more questions have run through my mind after a woman was dragged into our unlocked courtyard and violently assaulted, attempted rape, in the wee hours of Sat. morning.
The tenants have been complaining for over a year about the unlocked court yard. The landlords only response was, "Their are cameras in the courtyard. If you feel unsafe all 911" and/or "You are free to break your lease and move."
So he seems not to be pro-active about deterring possible crimes that could and now unfortunately have occurred in his buildings courtyard. He will simply view the tapes after the fact
My questions are:
What is a landlord's legal responsibility concerning the safety of the people who inhabit their buildings?
Do your landlord's show more concern for their tenants safety?
Side note, I did not call 311 so I can not get the complaint # or police report.
Does anyone know where the public record for this incident would be?
It happened Saturday Oct 3, about 3:00 AM.
