    Costs of Drug Activity in Rental Property:

    When drug criminals and other destructive tenants operate out of rental property, neighborhoods suffer and landlords pay a high price. That price may include:

    • Decline in property values — particularly when the activity begins affecting the reputation of the neighborhood.
    • Property damage arising from abuse, retaliation, neglect, or from police raids.
    • Fire resulting from manufacturing or growing operations.
    • Civil penalties, including temporary closure of the property — or even property seizure.
    • Loss of rent during eviction and repair periods.
    • Fear and frustration when dealing with dangerous and threatening tenants.
    • Increased resentment and anger between neighbors and property managers.
    • The loss of other valued tenants.
