Negligent Security

Property owners in Georgia have a duty to prevent foreseeable crimes on their property. Businesses like apartment complexes, hotels, and motels in high crime areas should take reasonable precautions to protect the public. These precautions can include security systems, security gates, installing proper locks on doors and windows, alarm systems, and even hiring security guards.

In many instances, preventable crimes occur in apartment complexes and hotels when business owners and property managers ignore warning signs that a crime will occur to one of its tenants or patrons. If a property owner or property manager, for example, knows that a lock is broken and fails to repair or replace it and a tenant is killed or raped, the property owner should be held responsible.
