Q: I am the resident manager of a large apartment community. The police have come to our property several times recently because of one tenant. She told me that she has had to call the police because her former husband insists on coming to see her. I don't like the disruptions, and I am worried about the community getting a bad reputation because of the frequent police presence. Am I entitled to terminate this woman's tenancy? --Warren W.
A: Before taking action, have a talk with this tenant. Your question implies that she has not invited the abuser to the property -- but has she obtained a protective, stay-away order from the court? If she has not, that may be the place to start, and if you're lucky, the ex may respect it and keep away.
