Landlord Liability for Broken Locks and Gates
Landlords are liable for any foreseeable injuries, deaths, theft, or damages that occur because of broken locks, gates, etc. causing security issues. Tenants should inform landlords immediately and request a fix. Additionally, they may violate local housing codes and will be in violation of most states' "implied warranty of habitability" rules.
