It could have been the super, but your message doesn't indicate youhave actual proof. Be careful on slander unless you have better evidence.If the LL knew the security was compromised and failed to inform tenantsor change the locks, he could potentially be liable for negligence. Andif he knew, he probably knew when and where the keys were missing andhow they came back to his or the super's possesion.: Please Help !! I live in a bldg. on Staten Island w/ approx. 11 apts. in it.: (No prior problems w/ Building or Management, the bldg. is brand new) : (1 year old) 6 of these apts.: were robbed 2 weeks ago (Same day). As per the Detective on the case : none of the apts. had any sign of forced entry & whoever came in probably had : keys . All of the apts. have the same locks , 2 locks including a dead bolt, : which were installed by management, they hold the Master Keys.: My question is can the landlord be held financially responsible for the : theft ? He admitted that someone had to have gotten a hold of either : his or the supers key but doesn't know who. He then precede to have all of the cylinders (locks): in the bldg. changed (Isn't he admitting fault ??): I have no renters Insurance & had approx. : $3,000 worth of Jewelry & small electronics taken. I do not know : anyone else in the bldg. since I have only lived there a short period of time.: Any advice on possibly suing or withholding rent would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!: :
