Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please. 1. Does your lease prohibit illegal activity from taking place in the unit? Doug

The lease says "The tenant shall conduct himself or herself in a manner that will not disturb a neighbor's peaceful enjoyment of the premises." also, "Tenant shall not assign this Rental Agreement, nor sublet the dwelling unit or any portion thereof, without the written consent of the Landlord." I have found out that the person involved in the raid was staying in the basement of the unit without my written permission or notification. This was news to me.
