What to do About Drug Dealers, Prostitutes, and Vandals in the Neighborhood
Tenants or landlords may witness non-violent crimes like drug-dealing, vandalism, and prostitution near the apartment. Such crimes don’t directly injure or harm the tenant but may increase the risk for violence or other incidents. The primary remedy is reporting the activity to the police. If instead, it can be tracked to a building in the neighborhood, landlords (or tenants) have the additional option of bringing a private nuisance lawsuit.
