Pretty easy achievement, here's a couple of things I would like to point out.

1. The actual basement area is the printing room itself. The area where Mitch goes to show the leak is not the the basement, even the hall is not the basement, same applies to the other house. The printing room, that is inside the two gated doors is the basement that the achievement is speaking about.
2. If you are doing this solo, either find a crowbar or have a C4 build with shaped charges, because sometimes there are C4's that explode inside the printing room, if they do, it opens a hole above, from where cops can get in, making the achievement much harder. So before the code finishes, get that crowbar or be prepared near the door to rush in, put on shaped charges and go defuse the C4's.
3. Any DOMINATED cops that get inside the basement VOID the achievement. So do not convert cops.
4. Having a C4 build lets you place quite a few traps to prevent any cops from going to the basement, I usually put 1 near the top of each stair case, 1 near the bottom of each stair case and one near the entrance to the halls that leads to the printing room.
5 THE MOST IMPORTANT PART! BEFORE attempting this achievement, do a hard reset for your Xbox, then go to your network settings and go offline. Now boot up the game, go to OFFLINE and do this heist on your own. When you have the safe opened and no cops came inside, then JUST IN CASE, pick up the thing required for completion of the heist and run to the escape. JUST IN CASE...
After you done the heist, turn the game off and go back to your network settings and go ONLINE.
You may not get the achievement notification, so go to your profile, then to achievements and check it, if it is unlocked. Or if you have a Windows 10 PC or Laptop that is connected with your Xbox account, you can see the notification for the achievement on your desktop.

Hope this helps out a little and good luck :D
