Your rights when your landlord ignores security concerns

You chose your apartment because it came with solid security measures. You didn't want to feel threatened in your own home. You wanted it to be a place where you could relax. You were assured when you signed the lease that that's exactly what you were going to get.

How many escalators and elevators cause annual injuries?

You think nothing of stepping onto the escalator or the elevator. Both are so common in modern society that you use them with little thought to your own safety, trusting in the design of the machines.

A few examples of things a landlord could do include:

Landlords have to give you notice when entering to make repairs

Your landlord has an obligation to keep your residence in good condition. This doesn't mean that cosmetic updates -- like updated trim or new bathroom fixtures -- have to be made, but that the residence has to be habitable and safe. Safety issues like broken banisters and exposed wiring need to be fixed.
