can i break my apt lease because of a B&E
It depends. Your landlord has a duty to protect you from unreasonable risks of harm that result from the foreseeable criminal acts of third parties, if the danger was created or enhanced by the landlord. Thus, you may be able to terminate your lease if yhe break-in arise from, say, your landlord’s failure to provide adequate lighting and locks in common areas. However, your landlord's duty does not include providing police protection or security guards to prevent criminal acts, because a landlord does not have a duty to protect you against the general hazard of crime in your community.
