  1. Essentially what you are asking: Can a landlord evict if he/she is aware of illegal activities in an apartment. The is yes.


  2. The lease most likely addresses that the tenant must comply with all laws. So a crime would likely givem them the right to enforce such a provision. It is a question of what the landlord can provide by a preponderance of the evidence.
