: Has anyone tried this approach or know anything that might help ? Thanks A Lot!!!

: : (No prior problems w/ Building or Management, the bldg. is brand new)
: : (1 year old) 6 of these apts.
: : were robbed 2 weeks ago (Same day). As per the Detective on the case
: : none of the apts. had any sign of forced entry & whoever came in probably had
: : keys . All of the apts. have the same locks , 2 locks including a dead bolt,
: : which were installed by management, they hold the Master Keys.
: : My question is can the landlord be held financially responsible for the
: : theft ? He admitted that someone had to have gotten a hold of either
: : his or the supers key but doesn't know who. He then precede to have all of the cylinders (locks)
: : in the bldg. changed (Isn't he admitting fault ??)
