Re: “Tenants' rights, postmortem

this sounds completely like the squires. do things as fast and dirty as possible, pushing people to get their deceased belongings out without regard to the laws of man or of human decency, of which he has none. vile man

Re: “Fighting Floyd Squires

this is so sad. here it is August of 2013 and Floyd Squires is still taking advantage of the poor & all the people who fall into that gray area between ideal tenants and the un-rentable. it's horrifying the things we see everyday living here in the 833 Hst apts. drug needles & other paraphernalia, broken glass, garbage, human garbage wanting to either shoot up or sleep it off drifting through the hallways. when we moved our family here in May of this year, we had no idea how bad this place was. there were no vagrants, no bugs, no noise to turn us off. we thought what a nice old building, it just needs some TLC. How wrong we were. I Feel I have wronged my entire family by bringing them here, to this place where you have to barricade your doors at night & pray that the lights don't go out, because then the roaches will swarm. I cannot believe that you don't have to at least warn people in writing about these conditions before they accept tenancy. and what really blows my mind is how it seems the city is pretty much letting him. when all they do is threaten to add more fines instead of some sort of judgment being brought against him to forcibly compel this man to right some of the wrongs he continues to inflict on this community. I've never been a fan of eureka and we were homeless when we applied for this apartment so the thought of a place that wasn't perfect just needed work sounded perfect for us. but it's so beyond that. no matter how hard we work around our own apartment, were still surrounded by filth on every side. no matter how much we work in the backyard, 100's of needles are still thrown out windows to land close to where our children play. in the 2+ years our family was homeless before this, we were never so dirty (from trying to remove the filth surrounding us, the apartment was disgusting and dirty when we were finally allowed to move in with the orders if you want it better do it yourself) , depressed, literally sick, and going slightly nuts from lack of sleep because of the horrible druggies screaming up and down the halls and from being afraid to turn out the lights. because when the lights go out, the roaches SWARM. and now this horrible man has every penny extra we could save for our deposit, and from what I've heard, even though we have pictures of how bad it was, and we've been making it better as we can, that no-one, absolutely NO_ONE gets their deposit money back from Floyd Squires. so how in the world can we get out of this horrible place we now have to call home? I miss my tent
