Crimes are very unpredictable to tenants, especially when it comes to where they occur and with what frequency. When you live in an apartment complex or condo, you can’t control who comes onto the property and who doesn’t. Instead, you must rely on your landlord or property manager to ensure that the proper security measures are implemented and kept up to date.
In many cases, Georgia thieves and criminals will seek out areas where there is less of a chance of getting caught. They look for things like broken security cameras, damaged guard gates, and dim street lights to help them choose where and when they may commit a crime. Unfortunately, many apartment complexes do not have suitable security which puts their residents at risk.
