Join us at a Protest to

When: Thursday, July 15th at 11:30 a.m.
Where: Chase Tower, 10 S. Dearborn in Downtown Chicago
Bailed out banks let buildings in foreclosure waste away!
The story began over 2 years ago when foreclosure proceedings began. This Saturday, July 17th 2010, the residents of 7263 S. Coles will be homeless. JP Morgan Chase has been responsible for maintaining this property since 2008. For two years Chase hasn’t honored its responsibility, and the building deteriorated to such a degree that the City stepped in and ordered residents to vacate the property this coming Saturday (July 17th). The tenants will be put out on the street.
Rental properties across the city are deteriorating because the banks responsible have done nothing. For residents the choice is especially stark…live in substandard conditions or leave the homes they once cherished. This crisis has been developing for years and is getting out of control. Banks have done little or nothing to save our homes and our communities…and we want to know what they are waiting for.
Banks to be responsible for maintaining buildings in foreclosure
Relocation assistance for the families being displaced by banks that ignore their obligations.
A Foreclosure Stabilization Program. The proposal would promote building maintenance and preservation and resources to keep tenants housed and prevent displacement, abandoned and vacant buildings.
Thank You National Apartment Association. I will do my best to get this very important information out ASAP to numerous owners, investors, huge property management companies (e.g., Riverstone Residential), attorneys, and judges, AND, of course, to the MANY people who are currently living in MOLD-INFESTED APARTMENT COMPLEXES right now! katy
Political Action Committee – National Apartment Association (NAA) files Amicus Brief in mold case (two infant deaths in mold filled apt – Wasatch Prop Mgmt) citing US Chamber/ACOEM ‘litigation defense report’ to disclaim health effects of indoor mold & limit financial risk for industry
“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
Information about Riverstone Residential, the Louisiana Housing Finance Agency, and the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments in Baton Rouge, Louisiana allowing tenants to be exposed to extreme amounts of toxins from molds by intentionally concealing evidence
Irrefutable evidence indicates that Riverstone Residential, Guarantee Service Team of Professionals, & plaintiffs’ attorney, J Arthur Smith III, must have agreed to exclude evidence that would have shown the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments & Riverstone Residential had knowledge of the severe MOLD INFESTATION at the complex before we moved in
