I am a law school graduate. What I offer is mere information, not to be construed as forming an attorney client relationship.

Landlords cannot place you in danger. But I do not know if this can apply to informing you of other residents (that may be a breach of privacy). I know Megan's Law states such child molestors have to register with the city/county and the information has to be sent to the neighbors where he/she is going to live. I don't know if your landlord has such a duty under Megan's Law. Also, check your lease. Thoroughly read it to see if there is any section that deals with this sort of thing.

Contact the department of housing and urban development and see what can be done.

Hope this helps.
