    What are you supposed to do if you find evidence of illegal activity during an inspection, other than issue a 90 day notice and apply to TT for immediate possession? Should you inform the cops that you found a grow room in the back bedroom of your rental or a meth lab in the garage?

    It's at your perogative whether you call cops or not. Its not a crime to not report crime.

    This law has been around for a long time and there is no case or evidence that cops would go after Joe blogs landlords.

    Cops would however pursue those actively involved in the drug world.

    I think 3 monthly is adequate. No, finding evidence of illegal activities is not the main reason for inspections but if you found a hydroponics setup in the back bedroom I think you'd get suspicious something was up.

    Google tell's me that a marijuana plant is productive in about 8 weeks and produces for about 7 months.

    Then a week later, after receiving another weeks rent, the house gets raided. The cops can then prove that you accepted that weeks rent knowing full well that it was from the proceeds of crime and you've now forfeited the house.

    And that I have to do inspections often enough to find said crime?
    I don't think so!
    Am I supposed to know what all crimes look like?
    No. It's a bit like receiving stolen property. At some point logic suggests it's too cheap and added to that the fact that you bought it from a dodgy chap in a pub.
    So if the place stinks and there are empty chemical bags in a pile behind the house..you might be in the loop.

    Defense:

    - I believed there was evidence of drug manufacture so I prepared/ was preparing a breach notice.
    - I believed there was evidence of drug manufacture, I was too scared for my safety to report this, the tenants are associated with (insert gang here). - ((why rent to ppl like these eek.))
    - I was aware but not really sure what to do.
    - I thought there may be something, but did not want to look into it.

    No Defense:
    - I was aware and told them they could only continue if they gave me a quarter of their profits otherwise I would dob them in.
    - I am an associate of (gang) and knowingly leased house to them.

    Except that they have now voiced the opinion that they might and like any creeping Jesus it will happen.

    Well not necessarily.
    They would have to prove ihe money came from drug sales as there may well be other income in the house.
