My apartment was burglarized, can I sue my landlord?

After living in your apartment in Florida for a few years, you come home to find that your place has been broken into. If you are thinking about suing your landlord after your home has been burglarized, you may be shocked to learn that you may be able to do so if he or she failed to take certain measures to make your apartment secure, states website Landlordology.


Dealing with the aftermath of a robbery can be hard. However, it is important for you to learn more about the security issues that lead to the situation and the ones your landlord may be responsible for so you can take appropriate actions to protect yourself in the future. For instance, if your property owner failed to change the locks immediately or within a reasonable amount of time after you informed them that you lost a key, he or she may be responsible for any security breaches and robberies that occur.


Your landlord may also be considered negligent if he or she failed to make sure that all entrances, including the windows to your apartment had fully working locks and were capable of being closed properly. If your landlord did not take reasonable actions to provide you with a secure unit, your claim may be valid.


There are other factors that need to be evaluated in order for you to win your claim against your landlord, especially the circumstances that lead to the burglary. This information is only intended as educational material and should not be used as legal advice.
