Would you move if you found out your landlord had a serious criminal background?


Long story short - Our apartment is attached to her home with a door that has no lock. That door goes into shared laundry room. Her charges start in 1994 and go all the way through a charge she is out on bail for. Some examples of her charges Burglary first degree, forgery, grand larceny, DUI 3 times, Fraudulent checks, and a current charge of wrongful death that doesn't go back to court until next year. Would you wait for lease to run out or break lease?

    The roof leak wasn't in your original question. That is definitely a Code violation and can be reported if she doesn't fix that.

    We just came out of months of being homeless. Moving is going to be hard to do since we aren't fully reestablished yet, but it looks like we are going to have to figure out how. Buying lock tomorrow, but she isn't going to be happy when she finds it.

    I was thinking the same but moving is costly. Thinking of suing her for the roof leak she keeps half way fixing until the next rain when it leaks again.

    It doesn't appear so, but certainly concerning!

    Yes, landlords may "go into your apt," for maintenance....BUT only at your request or permission and must give you notice. No way can she go in & out at will.....especially when you are not at home!! This woman is simply up to NO GOOD. RED FLAG

    I really think you have the best answer to Peeples problem. I think some people are urging her to act hastily and in a way she may come to regret either emotionally or legally.

    Agreed, Sha....As a matter of fact, peeples...I HOPE ur making phone calls right now. This gets much more sinister as we interact. I believe the law will back U w/ all her VIOLATIONS. What do the other tenants say?

    Weird vibes is what made me look. I checked state public online records. I'm up to 24 charges in 3 counties, not even done looking yet. It seems they were all unrelated to this apartment that she just got 2 years ago. Frustrating!
