The friend of my customer's neighbor's car is my something-or-other

What options does a landlord likely have when a tenant's guest/friend is slashing the neighbors' tires and threatening them and has a criminal record? Assume standard lease in Illinois and that the guest definitely did it but the police won't make an arrest yet. The tenant has done nothing wrong.

Is she a slumlord landlady or am I just a delicate flower for needing a hotel room for a broken A/C in Phoenix?

Is my landlord liable to pay for the cost of a hotel and pet boarding when the air conditioner broke due to lack of maintenance in Phoenix, Arizona? The law seems incredibly unfair to tenants and I'm wondering if I'm misreading it. [more inside]

Can my new landlord give me the boot?

I've lived in my apartment for almost two years, on a month - to - month lease signed when the previous tenant left. While I can't claim to have been the perfect tenant, I've certainly never done anything that can get me evicted. Last month the building sold to a new owner, with whom I'd met and seemed friendly, but I've been wary of the situation nonetheless, never having much reason to trust landlords.
