  • Sean Hannity accused of repeatedly evicting tenants who paid no rent

    The great things about liberals is that even though most have never run a business, they all know exactly how businesses should be run.  It's as if all those courses they took at Amherst or Yale on women's studies, art history, and neo-colonialism gave them an intuitive sense for market forces, and exactly how much businesses should pay employees, exactly how much in taxes businesses should pay, and how to run every aspect of their companies. It's hardly surprising, then, to find an exposé in the Washington Post focusing on Fox News commentator Sean Hannity.  Hannity spent millions of dollars to...
  • Seattle Takes a National Lead in Robbing Landlords of Basic Rights

    Known as the "first in time" rule, the mandate forces landlords to rent to the first qualified applicant, rather than choosing the best fit from among prospective tenants.
  • Tenants angry after apartment building orders them to 'friend' it on Facebook

    Technically Incorrect: The owners of a Salt Lake City apartment building change the tenancy agreement and give tenants five days to like the building on Facebook. Or else. There's something forced about Facebook relationships. If someone "friends" you, you feel duty-bound to reciprocate. Even if that person is, well, entirely unknown to you. That forced feeling can go too far. As KSL-TV reports, residents of an apartment building in Salt Lake City, Utah, say they found a curious piece of paper stuck to their doors. Headlined "Facebook Addendum," it had fascinating stipulations. It insisted that tenants had five days to...

    A family of four in New York City makes $497,911 a year but pays $1,574 a month to live in public housing in a three-bedroom apartment subsidized by taxpayers. In Los Angeles, a family of five thats lived in public housing since 1974 made $204,784 last year but paid $1,091 for a four-bedroom apartment. And a tenant with assets worth $1.6 million including stocks, real estate and retirement accounts last year paid $300 for a one-bedroom apartment in public housing in Oxford, Neb. In a new report, the watchdog for the Department of Housing and Urban Development describes...

    A landlord has blocked off his plush 1m home with ten skips to stop his tenants from leaving without paying the 15,000 he claims they owe him. Businessman Simon Everingham says he has been in a constant battle for 3,000-a-month rent since the occupants of his four-bedroom 18th century farmhouse in Markington, near Harrogate, North Yorkshire, fell behind with the payments last November. He barricaded the American tenants Dan and Christina Herring in by blocking the drive on Monday and the fight to stop them leaving continued today. They work at the controversial Menwith Hill U.S. spy base nearby but...

    A client, who's a landlord, called saying his tenant refuses to pay because a letter arrive informing the tenant that because his landlord hasn't been paying the mortgage they should now start paying this company representing the bank. According to the tenant, the letter came certified mail and had legal documents with it. Client is current on his loan and immediately called up the bank to ask what was going on. The bank said they didn't know anything about this notice. The tenant called the number on the notice. The "customer service representative" asked for the tenants name, bank account...
  • Fearful Tenants Say Count Me Out Of Census

    PIERSON -- The population in Pierson is estimated at 2,600, but even the mayor believes it could be higher than that. Migrant workers, not all of them here legally, make up a big part of the fern capital of the world. Few know just how many live in anonymity. Census forms have arrived in the mail, but not everyone is filling them out. "No, I have not filled it out, said Alejandrina Hernandez. Because it is in English." The language barrier is only one reason. Even though census officials say all information given to that agency will be used by...
  • "Whose Vineyard Is It Anyway?" (Sermon for the Fifth Sunday in Lent, on Luke 20:9-20)

    Whose Vineyard Is It Anyway? (Luke 20:9-20)Our text today occurs early during Holy Week, when Jesus is teaching in the temple. The journey to Jerusalem has been completed, and now it is time to pronounce judgment on Jerusalem. Jesus does that in a parable often called The Parable of the Tenants. Its the story of some tenant-farmers who have been given charge of a vineyard, to manage it on behalf of its owner. But these tenants forget the fundamental question--a question we also need to keep in mind--and that is, Whose Vineyard Is It Anyway? So lets listen to the...

    St. Paul may soon pass a social host ordinance that punishes adults who knowingly allow parties, where minors are drinking. That includes adults who aren't even there, including landlords. "They bear some of the responsibility to ensure it doesn't continue," said St. Paul Council Member Russ Stark.

    Editta Sherman has celebrated more than half a century's worth of new years in her palatial studio apartment above New York's Carnegie Hall. But it's unlikely the celebrated portrait photographer will be raising her glass there next year. Known as the Duchess of Carnegie, the 96-year-old came home a few days ago to find an eviction notice on her door. "I thought, oh, what is this? Are you kidding me that they are really going to send a woman like me down the street just like that? Have me scurry away without a fight," she said, delivering a whooping cackle,...

    For the first time the office, in addition to imposing fines, is seeking to seize the landlords' properties, using a statute in the state code normally applied to antitrust cases. Authorities allege that the landlords sought to circumvent local renter-protection laws by locking tenants out of their buildings, failing to make timely repairs, making false and misleading representations that the building was being condemned and turning off utilities. At the low-rent Huntington Hotel downtown, electricity and water were turned off for extended periods, according to court documents, and tenants were threatened with violence or the removal of their property unless...

    Did you know that in California, child molesters and rapists are a protected class? It's true. Not only are California landlords banned from using the state's Megan's Law database to decline renting their properties to sex offenders, they're not even allowed to warn other tenants that these paroled criminals are now their neighbors. If they do the first, they can be fined $25,000 for housing discrimination. But if they don't do the second, they can be sued for failing to protect tenants against a known danger. Landlords are caught between a rock, a hard place and the California State Assembly's...

    CONCORD, N.H. - Six newspapers in New Hampshire have agreed to stop running real estate ads that suggest children aren't welcome at the properties following complaints that the ads violated federal law. Several dozens landlords and real estate agents also agreed to stop placing ads targeting adult tenants and to submit future ads to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for review. Federal law prohibits landlords from discriminating against children. The ads included promotions like "one mature person," "quiet adult location" and "great for a single person." They are discriminatory because they make it harder for families to...
