Landlords and business owners have a duty under the law to take at least reasonable measure in light of what they know regarding criminal activities in the surrounding area. 

This means making sure that their property has adequate surveillance, lighting, fencing, security monitoring, and warning residents or their guests of known crimes on their property or the immediate area. Too often residential and commercial landlords are negligent in the care of their property, resulting in sexual assaults to innocent victims.
