In this situation, I am the renter. US Based.
The area in which I rent has started to see crime increase drastically over the last 2 years and its at the point where over the last few months alone, I’ve had my car stolen and multiple package deliveries stolen.
My report to my landlord and the police, but here its basically expected that you’ll never hear from the police again, and the landlord has cameras everywhere but never comes up with anything.
Is it possible to get out of a lease early under these circumstances at all? I plan to speak directly with the landlord (which is a big company) about it to see if they would break it off. If they refuse, I’m curious if I have other options of if I’m just stuck riding it out while neither the landlord or police will do anything helpful.
For reference I live in a locked building, with tons of cameras inside and outside. When my car was stolen from right under a camera, no help. As my packages are being stolen, no help. So its likely another resident that is the thief that should be easily identifiable on camera, or its someone being let in by residents and allowed to free roam our home.
So basically I’m hoping that considering the landlord is doing absolute nothing, not even putting a sign up… do I have an approach?
