The Wall of Shame

Landlords love to watch our records, so we watch them back. Here’s the worst of the worst.

We came across the Thicket and their abusive apartment management and negligent landlords through a tenant reaching out after a neighbor was flyering the area. Eventually, some 50 tenants signed a letter demanding that management promptly remove health risks posed by infestation, mold, and disrepair, install accommodations for handicapped residents as required by the ADA, and that they fire an employee that has been repeatedly accused by multiple women of sexual assault and harassment.
 

The following Monday, we were pleased to hear from property management that they will meet the majority of the demands until we learned that one of the main tenant organizers received an eviction notice, and that the employee accused would not be fired.

This is unacceptable. The landlords are retaliating against tenants that exercised their right to organize to demand livable housing for them and their families and neighbors.

Still, Asset Living refused to act. When Nina and their roommates decided to leave out of concern for their health, Asset Living charged them thousands of dollars each for terminating the lease.
