Hello. My name is Alex.Thank you for your question.I will be happy to provide you with information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am not permitted to tell JustAnswer.com what to do in their specific situation or list all of the legal rights / legal options that might potentially apply in any specific situation, as such legal advice can only be provided by your local attorney, upon review of your entire case.
I can however, provide you with a general answer, if you have a legal question for me?
Thank you for your follow up.
No. Generally, the property manager and/or landlord is not liable for any criminal acts, unless the criminal acts caused direct injury and were due to the landlord's negligence, such as lack of reasonable security, such as proper lighting at night, video cameras, etc...
I wish you the best of luck!
Hi, This is Heather. I'm a different professional. What a scary situation. I don't blame your wife for being afraid. I would say that your landlord does need to provide a secure apartment. If the locks and latches are faulty, your lease probably provides a method by which you can request maintenance. If any of the locks on the windows are bad, you should request they be repaired.
