Bad Landlords in St. Louis

Yesterday I attended a community meeting which was quite interesting. The purpose of the meeting was to consider contracting Legal Services of Eastern Missouri to legally go after bad landlords. The one landlord we discussed apparently has a Ponzi Scheme in which he raises money from people with the promise they get rich. Instead he pockets the money and leaves the units vacant and in a state of disrepair. There are actual legal remedies communities can bring against such landlords. They have been successful in Kansas City and other locations where tried. I am hopeful we can have some good results in St. Louis. Written by Paul Dribin
