my daughter got a code enforcement thing once and the LL just ignored it then they started sending her bills for some easement bill or something- I don't remember, but she had to tell them OVER n over, I don't own this place I rent. I said when it comes- do NOT open -just forward it to the owner.

You should report it. It's the right thing to do. Anyway you could be held liable depending on your lease and otherwise the LL is liable.

The tenant needs to avoid causing more damages which means that if you don't tell the all and the cost will increase to with holding that info you can be held liable in the end for the additional cost.

Btw Always think how you would feel if you would be the LL....feeling like being entitled to ignore is not making you a better person. Pay forward will make you feel better which incl trying to keep a good relationship with the LL which doesn't mean you have to be buddies, but not like you on purpose want to be the cause of doing more harm to the situation and the other thing is you have neighbors ...I assume you have so don't you want them to feel like you are not just an annoying factor but a good tenant and nice neighbor.

Depending on your lease and if you have a deposit, the landlord could keep your deposit to help pay for any abatement of code violations. What's the harm in sending it to them?
