Learn how to Effects of Drug Abuse and Landlord Responsibility for Tenant Safety

The most effective way to address illegal activity occurring on rental properties is a coordinated effort among police, landlords, and neighbors. Efforts are underway to encourage neighbors to assume more responsibility for preventing crime on their blocks. Efforts are also underway to improve the way police address problems with drug activity in residential neighborhoods. What you can do is learn how to keep illegal activity off your property and make a commitment to removing or stopping it the moment it occurs.

This webinar is intended to help honest tenants rent from responsible landlords while preventing tenants involved in illegal activity from abusing rental properties and the surrounding neighborhoods. We know that, in the past, abuses of the property rental system have come from both sides. We also know that most landlords want to be fair and that most tenants are good people. Responsible property management and ownership begins with the idea that such actions will benefit the whole community. If the information provided is used responsibly, all of us— tenants, landlords, and owner occupants—will enjoy safer, more stable neighborhoods.

In this webinar join expert speaker Paul Flogstad, where he will explain how we enforce our house rules and what to watch for in the possibility of a clandestine drug lab, also discuss our role as managers to work with law enforcement when and if drugs are found.
