: My apartment was burglarized a few weeks ago.
: Access was gained through my window which the only way to enter is
: through an open window in the hallway. This window is always unlocked.
: Even when cablevision comes they don't look for the super they just put
: their ladder through this window.
: Can I hold the landlord liable for improper security? I need this
: information right away as I already have a case pending because of lack of
: repairs. Also can someone explain what an abatement is?
