Report details ‘substandard’ Manchester housing
The report author, Susan Bruce, said landlords do what’s minimally needed to pass three-year inspections. The total of outstanding tax bills for two of the landlords exceed $500,000.
“We want to be a team player. We don’t want to be the enemy,” she said. A reporter was unable to reach the other landlords named in the report — Mohamed Mobeen’s Fair Deal Enterprises; Donald T. Jsirandanis, and Formosa Co.
The organizations said they started speaking to center city residents in 2008 about housing conditions. They visited apartments, and they reviewed housing inspection files.
The Way Home’s Rick Castillo said the most troubling aspect of substandard housing is child lead poisoning. In 2013, two city children were hospitalized for lead poisoning and had to undero a dangerous procedure to remove lead poisons, one of them twice. The report recommended that lead detection be part of the city’s inspection process.
He’s stopped paying his $850 monthly rent. “My main concern is the (bed)bugs. They freak me out,” he said.
Perdue said Marte is upset with Perdue because he can’t make his rent payments. She did not believe he was withholding rent.
