Interesting problem. So essentially their neighbors surrender their right to the peaceful enjoyment of their rental apartments. I was in exactly that situation many years ago when I was the person calling the cops because of what was going on next door. Three times in about six weeks. And that it just for what I suspected were assaults. Noise complaints? Those were daily. And she kept taking him back. Eventually I had to move. I didn’t want to but I had to.

We had a tenant who was having domestic violence problems from a former boyfriend that she couldn’t seem to completely break up with. The local police department advised us to evict her…they couldn’t think of any other way to break the cycle of violence, and things were escalating. The rent didn’t begin to cover the cost of constant repairs of broken windows, doors, etc. and there was no telling whether the guy would eventually direct the violence to her person rather than her dwelling.

In the end, she was more or less glad to be taken off the hook. Eviction meant she wasn’t to “blame” for leaving. She walked away alive, in arrears on the rent but under the circumstances we weren’t going to make an issue of that, and everybody but the guy was happy. Sort of.

A friend in a similar situation worked with her landlord and the sheriff to have the guy forbidden on the property (restraining order granted to the property owner). If he showed up and they or anyone called the Sheriff, they did come and remove him.

That way, the perp couldn’t blame my friend, as his behavior was deemed inappropriate by both the landlord and the court.
