Landlord Tries To Get Rid Of Elderly Tenant For Bigger Profits
The David Cruz Show recently received an email from a young lady about how her 73-year-old mother was being evicted from her apartment, because of a $23 bill.
When the lady finally spoke to management, they gave her 3 days to send in the payment, and she promptly mailed a money order for the amount that was due.
Management later informed her that they received the money order a day late, and would begin eviction proceedings.
The owner has reportedly admitted that he is driven by a desire to get more money for the apartment, since the woman has lived there for 40 years, and only has to pay $259 a month.
David Cruz spoke with Larry Gross, Executive Director of the Coalition for Economic Survival, about the woman's rights as a tenant in a rent-controlled area.
