If you copy a key to your OWN APARTMENT, for chrissakes, there is no way in God's green earth there is a liability issue for anybody but yourself. To insult somebody and say it is "ridiculous" to ask for a copy of your OWN KEY is totally ignorant and a waste of bandwith.
Such crap has no place on this board.

: valid question, received valid answer. I stick by my response. Will he also supply his family/friends with keys to his apt so they can come anytime they want? The answer is probably not. Why subject others to what you wouldnt do yourself? I lived in many a building, and if a crime was committed against me by some one with a "key", who do you think will take blame? I highly doubt the tenant will. So again, you create safety issues for others. I still dont see how you are "entitled". He already provided primary key.

: : : Only named person(s) on lease are entitled to keys. Your request is a bit ridiculous. You wish to have it for the sole purpose of having friends/family come over, which creates a safety issue for other tenants and liability to the landlord should something happen. If you want people to freely come and go as they please, buy your own house. You can't subject others to liability for your mere convenience.
