Hello. My name is***** will be happy to answer your question.
I am sorry to hear about this unfortunate situation.
Please note, I cannot comment on your specific situation, as this services is only limited to general information and for any legal advice / legal service you should contact your local attorney.

Was management company / landlord in any way negligent or failed to provide any agreed upon security that is stated in the lease which led to this unfortunate crime?

What should i look for in the lease, since i want to sue them? General clauses on the lease?
Expert:  Alex J. Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for your follow up.

Can you clarify as to what you would like to sue landlord for?

Is the rental property in the gated community? Is there some type of lack of security? Please clarify, since unless the landlord / management can be found negligent or lacking adequate security, the management / landlord would not be liable for any criminal activity committed by third party at the rental property.
