An LSPD officer, Kira Light, discovered that Payne Real Estate has been allowing gangs the use of their properties in gang neighborhoods. She also discovered that Payne Real Estate has signed safety contracts with gang leaders that allow the leaders to choose who they want to live in their neighborhoods. The LSPD and CID have not followed up on this information yet.
Relationship with the HOA Edit
Payne Real Estate had hired the HOA to patrol and protect the neighborhood of Mirror Park and the houses in Vinewood, they even had an HQ in Vinewood provided by Payne via rental agreement. Now the legal and formal relationship between Payne Real Estate and the HOA has been dissolved and transformed to a direct and secretive relationship between Payne and Siz Fulker.
Payne had hoped the HOA will expand down to the Southside to protect the houses down there, but that plan was never executed. The LSPD and CID are also looking at whether Payne's hiring of the HOA to protect houses was truly the right idea or even legal.
