Legal Question

Asked on: 2/02/10, 6:42 pm

I have lived in my apartment building in Silver Lake since April '09. In November '09 I switched to a larger unit, ending my lease and starting another year-long lease at that point. However, in the past month I have discovered that there is a violent sex offender living in my building who has not been evicted, there was a person who owned an illegal automatic gun who had a warrent out for his arrest living above me (who used my balcony to escape from the police) who was arrested, there was a young adult who died from a drug overdose in a unit, and now today I had an electric scooter that was worth $1000 stolen. I feel extremely unsafe and want to get out of my lease. Am I legally able to do so?
