Provides a procedure and standards for a person who resides, works, or owns property in a building, or a neighbor within a 2-block radius of the building, to report that a tenant in the building is using a leased premises in gang-related activity. Provides that a person reporting the gang-related activity may give notice of the activity and demand that the landlord commence an investigation and, if warranted, a forcible entry and detainer action. Provides that if the landlord, after receipt of a notice and demand, refuses to investigate or finds no gang-related activity, the person who issued the notice and demand may petition the court to determine if the tenant allowed gang-related activity to occur at the leased premises, and if so, to order the tenant to vacate the premises.
