More people live in apartments than houses in the United States.
And there are all kinds of apartments -- big, multi-city complexes that house thousands of people and a single apartment within a house by one landlord.
Each of these situations requires the landowners to maintain their property reasonably in order to prevent injuries to their tenants. Some of these larger apartment businesses have property management companies; some do the work themselves.
For the larger companies, they typically have internal written rules regarding maintenance and their own maintenance staff; others just simply fix as they see fit.
And worse, some landlords do nothing at all.
Many tenants are afraid to make a claim against their landlord if they have been injured on the property due to the landlord's negligence. Don't be. You have protections under Indiana laws to prevent such a thing from happening. If it does happen, they can be sued for the additional harassment.
