In fact, one mom was murdered by her boyfriend's baby's momma by cutting the 8-month fetus out of her womb. These are (were) nice apartments that have reverted to low-income housing paid for by the good ole' USA via Section 8 Housing -- privately owned by poor-sap investors who hardly knew any better when they bought.

    The owners of these buildings do the best they can and, frankly, I don't know why someone would want to invest in them as the problems are many -- and our landlord/tenant laws are greatly biased in favor of the tenant. There are professional rent dodgers who move in with their first month and security -- and never pay another month's rent...knowing that it will take the landlord months to go through an eviction proceeding. Often a landlord will actually pay them money to move. It ain't easy.

    We had one of those. It took us a year to get the person out. All thanks to the incompetance of the cook county sheriff department. They canceled four times on us and the times they did go. The tenant showed them a paper and they did not bother evicting the tenant or asking him any questions. Our lawyer was upset and said that the sheriffs were idiots for not taking any information on what the tenant was showing them. But oh well. According to Catz those sheriffs are good guys and that rent dodger was a good guy.

    Didn't know you were in the Chicago area. The complex I'm talking about is located in Addison. I feel your pain. ;-)

    My parents owned multiple rental properties when I was growing up, and I spent many evenings and weekends cleaning up after sloppy disgusting people. Most recently, one of their properties was raided because the tenant (actually, her skeezy boyfriend) was cooking methamphetamine on the premises. I've spent the past year rehabbing an investment property in the city here with my boyfriend.

    Beyond that, I've worked extensively with rental properties in the inner city as an employee of the police department. I know quite a bit more than you've assumed.

    Yes, you do. So then why the cheap shot?

    I believe that logging and commercial fishing are the two most dangerous somewhat common jobs.

    It is not a cheap shot to point out the obvious that when a landlord is dealing with high levels of crime IN THEIR PROPERTY, they are a slumlord. It's a voluntary act on the part of a landlord to go through the process of accepting section 8 tenants, for one thing, and if you do so, you know what you're going to get. This ain't rocket science.

    Furthermore, it was a response to an attempted cheap shot by Gray.
