Customer Question

Next door neighbor committed rape and brutal assault of a woman who doesn't live in building. I heard the woman's cries and was interviewed by police & detectives , but as far as I know, they haven't arrested him yet. He is not on the lease but management refuses to deactivate his access key into building. Said they can't change locks for 15 days. I sent many complaints about him previously (regarding 24/7 pot smoking) and was told he would be evicted, but he never was. Their inaction led to this happening next door to me. I now feel very unsafe in building since they are allowing him to enter. Do I have any legal recourse?

If criminal activity is occurring in your rental community that is a reason for you to be able to terminate the lease. Where in Maryland is the building located?

I'm sorry. I can't see your responses because the site is giving me a payment error, although my payment info is correct. Hopefully it will be resolved soon.
