The owners of apartment buildings are responsible for ensuring that their tenants are safe by keeping the building up to code and properly maintained. However, not all apartments have security systems that can keep their tenants safe. Especially if an apartment building owner has any reason to believe that there may be a danger to their tenants or any criminal activity going on, they are responsible for ensuring that there is a system in place to keep tenants and visitors from harm. For example, if any criminal activity has occurred previously (there was a theft or an assault on the property), the owner should have some type of security system.
There are many ways that an apartment building owner can utilize different tools and technology to keep an apartment building safer and help prevent accidents. In fact, some of them can even be inexpensive and fairly quick to install.
Although not all crimes that happen in apartments will be the fault of the landlord or owner, it is absolutely possible to prevent crime by installing safety features, security systems, and maintaining the apartment building. If you or a loved one has been the victim of a crime due to negligent security in apartment buildings, please contact a trusted attorney today from the Saavedra Law Firm, PLC.
