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.
