I stated my tenant was driving while drinking etc... , I can not honestly say I know he is doing any of these things. Im concerned he may be or will. How do I go forward with my tenant to prevent this and determine liability for landlord. Also do i need special insurance for the tenant?
Tell him not to drink and drive. That's all you can do. You are not responsible for his crimes.
