Default Iím surprised it took this long to red tag!

https://www.wlns.com/home/residents-...te-by-sept-27/

About 5 years ago I had to work on this POS building. Itís one of those buildings that have the domino effect. If a repair clamp didnít work you end up chasing leaks. The type where you book a whole day. Iíve gone there for a pinhole leak and ended up replacing 6 stories of 1Ē water main. The owner was a cheap fíer! We fired them when the owner accepted a bid and when he got the bill heíd say ďNo, I want to pay this amount. Here we rely on the honor code, not work orders unless itís a big dollar job.

This isnít the first time since I worked there itís been in the news... a few years ago there was a huge prostitution and drug raid there. I donít remember exactly, but I think there were 14 people arrested?

The place needs to burn to the ground!

nothing will happen, if the people dont move out are they going to arrest them? house them and or find new places to live for the same money?..NOPE this is just a paperwork war to get the owner to pay up, but its not the residents fault..

I've worked in some of those type of buildings. The last one I went to was for a leak under the kitchen cabinet. I opened the cabinet and I was surprised when I was able to see into the cabinet from the unit behind theirs. At least they didn't have to walk far if they wanted to borrow sugar from their neighbor, haha.
The tenants told me I should collect money upfront because they've stiffed a few contractors.

Here!? Yes the cops will remove all residents by force if necessary! We had a POS trailer park on the south side where that exact scenario happened. Tenants that didnít move their belongings in time had to leave them there. After the the expiration of the red tag grace period it is unlawful to enter the structure unless you are the owner or licensed contractor hired to perform the required repairs and only Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. Donít dare have a cop drive by a red tag house on a Saturday with your work truck in the driveway or in front of a red tagged house. You will get a ticket and get a target on your back!
